#2 The Location
This year, Edge Summit takes place at the Marriott Marquis in Houston, TX – a beautiful hotel and meeting space right across the street from the Houston’s very own Discovery Green! Enjoy the heart of Houston, and all the great food that comes with it. Take a short walk and check out Minute Maid Park, the home of the Astros, the 2017 World Series Champions or the Toyota Center, home to the Houston Rockets.
#3 The Dinner
Attendees will enjoy a catered buffet lunch and breakfast on both days, but the meal you won’t want to miss is the exclusive dinner at Vic & Anthony’s Steakhouse on Thursday night. Edge Summit attendees are invited to join the PrimeroEdge family at Vic & Anthony’s on March 7 at 5:30 p.m. for a cocktail hour (with complimentary drinks and appetizers), followed by a dinner (on us!) at 6:15 p.m. This intimate gathering allows our users to enjoy an elegant meal and get to know our team, as well as one another, outside of the conference setting.
#4 The Hands-On Experience
Join us at the Product Base Camp to test out our latest modules and devices yourself! Check out the latest and greatest in school nutrition software, and pick the product owners’ brains with your questions – all in an interactive experience.
#5 The Networking Opportunities
PrimeroEdge users from across the U.S. will be at Edge Summit, giving you a wonderful opportunity to get to know child nutrition professionals from different parts of the country. With our interactive sessions, you’ll have a chance to meet others in the industry, build relationships, learn what strategies work (or didn’t work) for different child nutrition programs, and share some ideas and strategies of your own.
#6 The Time of Year
If you’ve ever visited Texas in the summer months, you know just how hot it can get here in the summertime. Luckily for you, Edge Summit takes place in early March – before Mother Nature brings the Texas heat! It’s a great time of year to spend some time outside when you’re not enjoying the Edge Summit activities. You’ll be here just in time for the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, where you can watch the rodeo, have fun at the carnival, and see music stars like Tim McGraw and Zedd in concert.
