Leading Caterers of America

As the catering industry begins its recovery, event venues will likely be even more crucial to the success of both on and off premise caterers than before the pandemic. Certified Catering Consultants’ venue expert Carl Sacks will present an update on how the venues market has been changed by Covid, what the future is likely to bring, and how caterers can position themselves to benefit from venue relationships.

Specific issues to be discussed will include:

• How the recovery will differentiate between social event venues and primarily corporate /gala event venues
• Evaluating the supply and demand ratio for venues in your own market
• Developing your own venue
• What venue owners and operators are looking for in a catering partner
• Establishing relationships with unconventional venues
• Responding to RFP’s for venues
