VIBE Conference 2011 Taking Shape

Sally Smith Buffalo Wild WingsWe’re very excited to announce Buffalo Wild Wings President and CEO Sally Smith will be our keynote speaker for the 2011 VIBE Conference. Smith joined the chain in 1994 and was named to her current post in 1996. Since then, she has grown the Buffalo Wild Wings to more than 600 company-owned and franchised locations in 41 states, keeping the wings-and-beer concept going strong through the recession. We look forward to her sharing her insights on growth in a tough environment.

So mark your calendars for March 8 – 10, 2011, and be in Las Vegas for the next VIBE Conference in order to take advantage of all the Nightclub & Bar Convention and Trade Show has to offer.

It’s hard to believe we’re already talking about the 2011 VIBE Conference! We’ve all hardly recovered from the inaugural event, but our team is already hard at work developing the 2011 experience. Thanks to all who provided feedback on this year’s conference, whether via our survey or by providing your comments directly to one of our team members. VIBE is created with you in mind, so keep those comments coming! Our VIBE Advisory Council will meet in Florida later this month to provide more input and direction, so stay tuned for additional developments.
