The National Restaurant Association's 2010 Public Affairs Conference will take place April 14 to 16 at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Washington, D.C., hosting a dynamic lineup of political experts and foodservice industry leaders.

The conference will offer restaurateurs from across the country the chance to meet with their members of Congress to advocate for the restaurant industry and discuss issues affecting their businesses. Former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Dennis Hastert will be the conference's keynote speaker. John Mercurio, political pundit and executive editor of The National Journal's The Hotline, will provide an account of the political leaders and events in the coming year that will shape the state of the foodservice industry.
