Meetings Webinar ClubFood and beverage often is the second-largest item in a meeting’s budget, but you don’t have to break the bank to provide a memorable F&B experience. Dig in to some tried-and-true F&B tips, and share some of your own, that will result both in satiated attendees and lower costs.

You can still plan memorable food and beverage functions on a limited budget—even in these times of skyrocketing food prices. Don't switch from filet mignon to chicken...switch to CREATIVITY. Learn more low-cost creative methods for selecting menus and food-service styles, improving the accuracy of guarantees, building partnerships and more. This fast-paced webinar will help take the guesswork out of planning meal functions and refreshment breaks that satisfy your meeting attendees…and your bottom-line.

  • Be able to determine ways to get more for their dollar
  • Have more low-cost creative ideas to choose from.
