If you are seeing varied colors of session titles, here is your guide:

Black = those sessions or events that can be attended by anyone with a Catersource or TSE pass, or requires a separate ticket.
Find your best experience by first choosing the pass type you have purchased. This will weed out all other extraneous sessions.
Sessions do fill up and seating is first come, first served. Note: Individual presentations may also be on this website shortly before the published show dates. They may or may not be the final presentation.

Why is committing to understanding finance and accounting in your business so vital?
Join CFO Dianna Chamberlin and Managing Partner Chris Sanchez as they speak candidly about the completely non-glitzy aspect of events and catering: numbers. Or are they? They'll discuss important data points for decision making, clarifying where risks and opportunities exist in your books, and how to allow for the smart creation of strategic planning, goal setting, budgeting, and forecasting. They'll address how to answer questions like "why are we in business?" and lend yourself answers to continue to grow.
