Potluck is a two-day conference exploring the role of hospitality in the social and corporate events industry.


Potluck is a brand new conference for a new generation of event companies. We believe in the power of the experience economy and are excited to have you join us at the table.



Potluck takes a modern approach to the business of social occasions.



The hospitality industry is evolving.

As the culinary world has established itself as a mainstay in popular culture, experiential hospitality has emerged to meet the demands of clientele who expect great food and design to be part of any great experience.

No longer confined to restaurants and hotels, the landscape of the hospitality industry now includes outlets such as private dinners, off-site catering, pop-ups and underground supper clubs. This new dynamic pulls together chefs, designers, producers, and venues together like never before.

Potluck is a conference designed to gather innovators from all walks of the hospitality industry, and provide a forum for conversation, workshops, and education among like-minded professionals, all of whom are shaping the future of the field.

We invite you to join us alongside peers and leaders from across the country. Potluck will feature noteworthy speakers and panelists, and there will also be extensive opportunities to engage with other participants through the all-day coffee lounge, rooftop wine bar, and our signature discussion format, Table Topics.

The mission of Potluck is to bring together an exceptional group of people, all of whom have something to bring to the table.



The Potluck Conference is being organized by Beth Griffiths, co-owner of Whoa Nelly Catering in Los Angeles, California. She has been working with an amazing team of people to bring the conference to life, including Brooke Greer of Contigo in Austin and the team at Bash, Please. Together we're committed to create a fresh space for conversations about the events industry.
