We’re excited to announce the dates for the 2021 National Restaurant Association Public Affairs Conference, the restaurant industry’s most important annual policy gathering.

Join the National Restaurant Association for the 35th annual Public Affairs Conference, April 20, 2021. Every spring, the restaurant industry comes together in Washington D.C., to meet with Congress on issues impacting our industry.

And while we can’t meet in person this year, there has never been a more critical time for our industry to come together with one voice to advocate for our industry.

With the new administration in D.C., and in light of the industry’s continued suffering during this unprecedented pandemic, our collective voice is needed now more than ever. We must educate our lawmakers—new and established—about the impact of COVID-19 on our industry and the steps Congress should (or shouldn’t) take to help us survive and eventually thrive once the pandemic passes.

Hear from political analysts, industry leaders, and lawmakers on key issues impacting the restaurant industry. If you’ve never attended the conference in the past, this virtual Public Affairs Conference is a great way to get involved for the first time.
