The Opening General Session officially kicks off the 2016 Cattle Industry Convention and this will be THE convention event you won’t want to miss! This year’s general session will be a “theatrical event”, with Robert Irvine LIVE! Is there cooking? Yes, but don’t expect to sit back and watch Robert cook dishes for an hour. With his new stage show, the seasoned, celebrated, no-nonsense chef takes his signature culinary sensibilities to a whole new level, resulting in a high energy, interactive, multimedia and multi-sensory theatrical experience.
This performance will be a new and unique experience. Don’t expect to come to this event and just sit and watch. This is an opportunity to let loose and have a good time! Expect to stand, yell, and dance (yes, dance)!
Don’t miss this exciting event- Mark your calendar today for the 2016 Cattle Industry Convention!
