While we are absolutely responsible for planning the logistics of an event, as event planners, we’re also responsible for thinking about the full event experience. One of the things I’ve been learning more about in the past few years is the relationship between food and energy levels. Let’s say you’re planning a large conference packed with content. Is it the smartest idea to serve a large pasta lunch? Not necessarily because the carbs break down and cause people to lose energy. Pair that with a dark conference room and you’re bound to have unengaged attendees. Another thing to consider is that as our attendees get more health conscious, they look for healthier and more energy-giving options at events. So, to make your life easier and inspire you with a few new ideas, check out our latest Pinterest board packed with ideas for healthier event bites!
