The cost of food and beverage for events has risen by unprecedented amounts in recent years.  This, coupled with venues that have become more strict, difficult to work with, and often with nearly impossible contracting standards, has created a need for council leaders and staff to revisit their already-frugal meeting planning standards.

Join this conversation to:

  • Dive into event planning basics; what happens before your guests step on-site
  • Address ways (and what) to negotiate to give your council the best possible financial outcome
  • Talk about food and beverage selections and how they play a role in overall spend
  • Discuss ways to accommodate a venue’s needs while protecting your guest’s experience
  • Learn tips and tricks for sensible guarantee

As a bonus and time permitting, we'll talk about making food and beverage choices that accommodate the dietary needs and preferences of your members!
