Episode 48 of The Tech Chef covers the recap of MURTEC 2022. ConStrata consultants Skip Kimpel (The Tech Chef) and Toby Malbec dive into their overall impressions of the show and discuss things like emerging technologies, sessions that stood out and the Start-Up Alley; the vast array of vendors in the competition this year and the, sometimes, micro-solutions they bring to the industry.
There is no question, conferences are back in full force again. Of special note, Malbec noted that while the attendance was not quite as high as previous years, it was quality over quantity.
Lots of discussions were occurring around recent mergers (DoorDash / BBOT as well as OLO / Omnivore) and what that meant for both the operators and the suppliers. Kimpel noted that he thinks we will continue to see more and more of these mergers and consolidations over the next 6-12 months. Malbec noted that he is also seeing improvements in offerings of back of house solutions and operators continue to concentrate on labor and food costs.
