Hospitality Technology (HT) magazine is now accepting nominations for the 2018 MURTEC Breakthrough Awards. The MURTEC Breakthrough Awards honor restaurant companies for outstanding achievement in business innovation. The awards are presented to operators for leveraging groundbreaking technology and innovative strategies to improve customer engagement and/or the overall enterprise. The MURTEC Breakthrough Awards are sponsored by NovaDine, an enterprise-class digital and mobile ordering solution provider to the restaurant industry.
Now in its 13th year, the MURTEC Breakthrough Awards will be presented at the MURTEC Executive Summit, a sister event to MURTEC (Multi-Unit Restaurant Technology Conference).
“Technological innovation has always been a central component of the Breakthrough Awards,” Dorothy Creamer, editor of Hospitality Technology magazine, explains. “The MURTEC Executive Summit with its tagline, ‘The Business of Technology,” emphasizes how forward-looking restaurant companies are increasingly using technology to build an ongoing dialogue with guests and staff inside and outside of the physical restaurant. Companies that do so are better positioned for future growth as the world changes and customer and employee expectations shift.”
"NovaDine is pleased to support the MURTEC Breakthrough Awards,” says George Istfan, founder and chief software architect, of the Raleigh, N.C.-based NovaDine. “In a time when technology is steering the customer experience, we look forward to what the Breakthrough Award nominees will highlight for the restaurant industry. Programs like this support growth in innovation and align with our mission to enhance the industry through technology.”
The MURTEC Executive Summit, held October 17-19, 2018, in Nashville, is produced by Hospitality Technology, and is a sister event to MURTEC (Multi-Unit Restaurant Technology Conference). The Summit is an intimate gathering of senior-level executives, unique from other technology events in the industry. The format and content is designed to draw in technology thought leaders and influencers in a program that prioritizes group discussions, two-way dialogue, and collaboration amongst both peers and sponsors.
