Salamander Resort & Spa | The Family Reunion, the immersive experience celebrating diversity in the hospitality community, returns for a second year from August 18-21 at Salamander Resort & Spa in Middleburg, VA.
The event’s enriching programming is highlighted by some of the industry’s top talent including Carla Hall, Rodney Scott, Nina Compton, Gregory Gourdet, Mashama Bailey and Tavel Bristol-Joseph and several surprise guests.
Presented by Chef and Author Kwame Onwuachi in collaboration with Dotdash Meredith’s FOOD & WINE and Sheila Johnson’s Salamander Hotels & Resorts, the multi-day event crosses culinary boundaries and combines thought-provoking panel discussions, topical cooking demonstrations, inspiring recreational activities and daily “family” meals where attendees and celebrity participants can interact. Last year’s inaugural event was lauded by guests and talent for its energetic and unique approach.
The mission of The Family Reunion is to nurture, develop and celebrate racial and ethnic diversity within the next generation of hospitality professionals.
