Italian table talks

Gruppo Italiano presents its original seminar series ITALIAN TABLE TALKS focusing upon various issues surrounding the Italian Food and Restaurants for tomorrow. These topics deal with the real ramifications on the restaurant and hospitality industry, and how it affects the whole chain from producers, importers and distributors, to restaurants, retail and ardent cuisine enthusiasts, the general public. In bringing together a panel of industry experts (business and academic, and government officials), ITALIAN TABLE TALKS aim to layout an informative and strategic vision to enhance the Italian food and hospitality industry in the United States.
