Lifestyle Trends: Moving From “Wellness” to “Wholeness”
August 9 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm CDT
AUGUST LUNCH & LEARN
As any “seasoned” event professional knows, the food & beverage component of your meetings can have an equal impact on the attendee experience as the educational content and networking events. Event organizers are increasingly challenged to keep up with the social, lifestyle and even entertainment trends which influence people’s palates and expectations. What are the “wholeness” trends we are seeing today and how can we leverage them to create healthful, mindful and memorable food & beverage experiences?
- Assess the impact of social media and “food as entertainment” culture
- Compare lifestyle demands driving dietary preferences
- Identify regional traditions, trends and resources to consider in menu design
