Food and Beverage Essentials

Effectively managing and selecting food and beverages for a convention, conference, event or meeting means successfully working with many variables and resources. This course will examine the detailed process, beginning with assessing your group and their needs, understanding the different roles that food and beverage can play within a program and creating an appropriate and realistic budget. Once these elements are in place, the fun really begins with learning how to work with a hotel or off-premises caterer to create wonderful menus while staying within your budget.

This is a core course in the Meeting and Event Planning Certificate Program.
