Coronavirus Dialogue Series: Food Safety - What is the New Normal and How do Meeting Planners Need to Prepare?

May 1, 2020 11:00am ‐ May 1, 2020 12:00pm

Identification: 05012020

1 Clock Hour | Domain C: Risk Management 

While COVID-19 has not been proven to be transferable through food, can it theoretically be possible? Think about all the touch points there is with the food and beverage we serve at events. Food safety is something planners often overlook, relying on caterers to handle. In the new normal, what do we need to consider about our attendees safety as it relates to the food and beverage we serve them. Buffets vs plated vs boxed? Single-serve prepackaged food? How many people do we sit at table = social distancing? Do we need to add sneeze guards? F&B costs are already high, what if we need to have more servers so to serve the buffets? Do we need to add hand washing stations to the rooms? Do we go back to using bottled water vs. water jugs.

Learner Outcomes:
1. Learn the what questions you should ask food service providers about their food safety practices.

2. Familiarize yourself with food safety policies and practices required of food service providers

3. Discover ways to provide safe food and beverage experiences easily.

Content May Be King – But How Well It Is Delivered Can Make Or Break Your Event

Presented by: Nikole Fridenmaker

Most business events have goals or outcomes around two common areas, networking, and education. If you orchestrate an amazing networking event but your education falls flat, eventually your participation will dwindle. When people commit to spending their time at your event or their money, they typically want to leave with skills, trends, new ideas that they can help implement with their own organization, for their own professional or personal development.

As the planners and organizers of these events, it’s critical that we place enough time and focus to develop a stellar education program and process. It doesn’t matter if you have the budget to pay speakers or if your speakers participate without compensation, the process and the content still need your expertise and curation.

During this session, we will walk through some best practices on how to attract outstanding speakers, how to evaluate outstanding speakers plus how to help your speakers improve and maximize their connection with the attendees. However, the work isn’t done on the last day of the event. There are ways to keep speakers engaged, your stakeholders and attendees engaged and motivate your speakers to improve and keep coming back with bigger and better topics.

Key Take-Aways:

1. Participants will be able to evaluate and create a complete, well-developed process for their speaker and education needs, as well as their goals and outcomes for the life-cycle of the event (pre-event, event, post-event).

2. By participating in this session, planners will be able to apply simple techniques that will elevate the quality of their speakers, speaker selection and education outcomes.

3. By the conclusion, participants will be able to organize and implement an intentional plan to help grow and improve their speakers.

Designing Your Event with Connectivity in Mind

Presented by: Brandt Krueger and Will Curran

As an #EventProf your mind is running in a million directions when planning events. You need to think about the visual design, create engaging content, and of course, the overall experience of your event. But have you thought about connectivity design for events? On average attendees have at least two devices on them at events. If they can’t connect or have a bad connection, it could ruin their experience, and tank your event! Attendees have been known to walk out of an event if they can’t connect. This doesn’t have to happen to you! In this session, we will teach you how to make sure you have the best connectivity so your guests can connect with ease to your event app, social media, live streams and more. Hint: it’s more than just wifi!

Key Take-Aways:

1. Learn the basics of internet connectivity, including WiFi and “hard-line” connections

2. Learn about the modern connection requirements your attendees and partners demand, and tactical tips to keep them connected in the best way possible.

3. Start having productive conversations with stakeholders, venues, technology providers, and beyond!
