Philippines to host Zomato Restaurant Summit 2015

Zomato, the world’s fastest growing restaurant search and discovery service, will organize the first-ever gathering of restaurateurs for the Philippines, the Zomato Restaurant Summit 2015, on May 19 at the Makati Shangri-la Hotel.

Entitled “Conquering the Digital Age,” the Summit aims to tackle interesting opportunities and pressing issues that challenge restaurateurs in today’s digital world.

“This will be Zomato’s first restaurant summit in the Philippines. Our goal is to bring the industry together by creating a platform for all restaurateurs to discuss contemporary topics and discuss the challenges of the business in these digital times,” said Zomato Philippines’ country manager Anton Ojeda.

The Summit includes participation from industry visionaries, venture capitalists, senior marketing professionals and seasoned restaurant owners from all over the country. It will also feature plenary sessions, touching on topics such as the evolution of Filipino restaurants, investing in restaurant businesses—what investors look for, promoting one’s brand in the digital age, crisis management, and the role of technology in restaurant operations.

Breakout sessions, on the other hand, will discuss how restaurant owners can keep their businesses sustainable, and how they can woo the millennials. It will also feature a topic on promoting Filipino food outside the metro and to the world.
