CLEVELAND--()--WTWH Media, LLC, has announced that registration is now open for the second year of the QSR Evolution Conference and NextGen Restaurant Summit. The events, which will be co-located at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis, will take place September 4-5, 2024 with a welcome reception held on the evening of September 3rd.

The QSR Evolution Conference, presented by QSR Magazine, is a one-of-a-kind event for quick-serve restaurant operators where attendees have a unique opportunity to connect and network in a face-to-face setting with others in the restaurant industry. The NextGen Restaurant Summit, which is presented by FSR Magazine, serves as a connecting point for the NextGen and emerging full-service restaurant brands that are defining the future of full-service restaurants.

“We’ve been looking forward to this day ever since last year’s conference ended,” said Danny Klein, Editorial Director of QSR and FSR. “The energy at our inaugural event was so overwhelming that we were eager to carry it over into our second. And that hasn’t disappointed. The list of speakers and insight we’re bringing to Atlanta this year is even bigger, and we can’t wait to gather everyone together to experience it.”

The agenda is highlighted by several keynote addresses including a roundtable discussion with Tom Curtis, President of Burger King; Katerina Glyptis, President of Tim Hortons; Sami Siddiqui, President of Popeyes; and Mike Hancock, President of Firehouse Subs. Other keynote presentations will be delivered by Sabir Sami, CEO of KFC; Scott Murphy, Chief Brand Officer of Inspire Brands; and Jim Holthouser, CEO of GoTo Foods. Additional speakers include more than 80 accomplished industry leaders from across both sectors.

Last year’s inaugural events attracted over 800 C-level executives, presidents, founders, franchise owners and operators, operations executives, technology and information executives, human resources, culture executives and franchise development executives from across the country.
