Overview:

Our industry has huge opportunities to use meeting and event sustainability to help support local communities and protect the environment while being profitable. Food & Beverage (F&B) is often the focus of so many events, and there are so many ways we can provide participants with an interesting and sustainable F&B experience without ‘breaking the bank’. Often the ‘B’ of Sustainable F&B is thought of as merely avoiding water bottles, when there is so much more! And it makes good sense to be sure we’re offering our food and refreshments in the 'right setting'.

Join us to learn about how buying local can be good for the community, your delegates, and work within your budget. We’ll showcase some fun susty alternatives that may get you excited about your next event and how you can implement some of these ideas.

Learner Outcomes:

Options for making good (sustainable) F&B choices and how to apply that approach to your entire event supply chain
How to create the ‘right setting’ for your susty F&B choices
Two ways that applying sustainability to F&B brings value to your event/client/delegate.
