Because the SDA knows the senior dining industry, we understand that time and resources can be limited. Our events are designed to be convenient, efficient and valuable to all attendees.

SDA events will range from short evening events to multi-day conferences – all with the same foundation of fostering the senior dining industry. With a combination of feature speakers, topic-driven round-tables and (of course) great food samples, we will dive deeply into the senior dining market and emerge with great findings for all attendees.

    A resident's experience with dining services occurs throughout their day, not only when they enter a dining venue.  

    They wake up wondering what gluten free options are available for lunch or if their dinner reservation has been confirmed.  They think about how lovely lunch was yesterday and hope you know how much joy waiter Ben brings each day.

    Join us as we explore real ways to enhance all residents' dining experience with technology regardless of their personal appetite for the digital life.

    Katie Griffith, principal of Bright Solutions will present her second SDA Tech webinar.
