Speaking of the DDIFO National Conference, the DDIFO room block is set to expire one week from today, May 11 so those planning to attend are encouraged to reserve your hotel room within the block soon at the DDIFO discounted price of only $159 per night. Registration at the early bird discounted price is still available, but scheduled to expire on Tuesday, so be sure to register now to attend the conference. Some of the highlights will include renown attorneys Sarah A. Walters (supply chain & cooperative expert), and Robert Zarco (franchise law and franchisee representation). We’ll also enjoy Dunkin’: A Three Dimensional View, with major investor Michael Kelterof First Manhattan along with Piper Jaffray Managing Director Nicole Miller Regan and John Gordon, Pacific Management Consulting.
