Redefining Dining: Food and Beverage Service Post COVID-19

Whether it's shared during education, networking or casually, a central point of the attendee experience is the food served at a meeting or event. With the increasing distribution of vaccines, the easing of gathering restrictions, and the arrival of warmer weather, the return of meeting, events and travel is on the horizon. With more and larger assemblies comes the need and the expectation of keeping attendees' palates satisfied, as well as prioritizing their safety. 

Watch the recording of the Spring Education program for an engaging panel exchange on the immediate future of the food and beverage industry as we look forward to meeting and traveling in the coming months.
