What is Econo?

Econo is a multi-city tour intended to bring educational programming directly to bar professionals across the US in a way that eliminates the high cost of travel while offering the highest level of career training alongside sparking conversation and leading training around the social issues that are troubling in our industry and our world. During the day, Econo offers these classes and by night, we welcome our guests to a celebration of their community through our popups which both raise money for charity and help foster networks.

The daily schedule looks like this:

10AM Registration Opens
11AM Classes
1:15PM Lunch
2:30PM Classes
5-7PM Break
7-10PM Charity PopUp
11PM Drive to the Next City!

We ask for a $5 donation at the door which gives you access to ALL of the classes AND the night time popup. Drinks in the evening are also on offer for $5 (again suggested). These proceeds will go to our charity partners including CORE (Children of Restaurant Employees).
