2024 Annual AKFCF Convention

March 18 – 22, Aria Hotel,

Las Vegas

KFC Family – Get Ready to Reach!

At the 2024 Annual Convention, you will be challenged to think bigger and bolder about the boundless potential of your restaurants and the future of the KFC brand.​


When people say something is impossible, what they really mean is, “I can’t imagine how it could be possible.”  But with more knowledge and experience, they’d begin to realize that anything is possible, it just takes a change in mindset.  Because ‘impossible’ is what we get when we haven’t trained our minds and our hearts to see past the systems that currently exist to ones that don’t yet exist.


This year, we are challenging all of you to reach impossible. To change your mindset about reaching 10 billion in Sales, to provide the best customer experience to all guests, to build a team that performs second to none, and to be the number one operating chicken restaurant in the world.


If we can find the patience to see the world for what it is – dynamic, flexible, and loaded with untapped potential – and if we can accept the fact that change is an inevitable and brilliant part of life, then we can partake in the thrill of progression, and help shape a brand in which the impossible becomes possible.


And this year, the AKFCF Convention is reaching impossible. We have a new production company, new AKFCF Convention team, new KFCC LT members with new thought processes and mindsets to make this a best-in-class show. We are elevating the experience and energy every day in every ballroom and in every event.


AKFCF’s Annual Convention is the leading forum for the KFC Family to discuss their challenges and successes. We continue to promote best practices for restaurant management and delivery, and our highly anticipated event in Vegas promises engaging and compelling content, networking opportunities, inspiring keynote presentations, and peer-to-peer learning.


Get ready to experience AKFCF’s and Las Vegas’s energy and captivating inspirations. Whether you come a little early, stay a little late, or carve out some time in between the Convention, discover all that this vibrant Convention and city has to offer.


Your adventure begins when you register. Whether this is your first or fifteenth visit to Las Vegas, get ready for some new thrills. AKFCF is excited to be back in Las Vegas for the 2024 Annual Convention, and we’re ready to offer you the adventure of a lifetime.
