Sustainability. It's not the big, scary, all encompassing topic it seems to be—at least it won't be after you attend this idea-generating session. Sustainability at its essence benefits your company economically, ecologically, and socially. Adding sustainable practices to your business is not a burden or a hindrance, but a way to upsell your clients and downplay your carbon footprint. Join expert Michael Dwork and his panel of caterers and event planners—all who are able to seamlessly integrate earth-friendly practices and aesthetics into their events—and walk away with ideas regarding choosing products, marketing, and upselling, as well as ways to talk to clients about it more cogently. Bring your questions and ideas!
