This annual Fall event is the largest trade show in the state of Oklahoma and the most important event for foodservice, hospitality, and tourism industry professionals, featuring hundreds of exhibits, an opening night party, the ever-popular ORA Culinary Cook-off, the exciting ORA Cocktail Shakedown and over 6,000 industry attendees.
The ORA Academy is back in 2017 with both a BOH/Culinary track and a FOH/Management track! The goal of the Academy is to offer continuing education and professional development to particular demographics of ORA’s membership. At the end of the year, if a student has attended all 4 sessions, they will be awarded an ORA Academy “Certificate of Knowledge” and be recognized in The Restaurateur magazine.
Do you know anyone (maybe yourself!) who is under 30 years of age and demonstrates talent, drive and service to their communities? Consider nominating them for the Hospitality category of the statewide NextGen Under 30 Awards! Nominees must be 30 or younger in 2017, and applications are due by August 25.
