The Best Social Media from the Events Industry
Have you heard of Sustainable Gastronomy Day? Well, it's today! Why does it matter to us event planners? Because today is about sustainability, cultural diversity & the art of food. All these 3 principles are involved in our work when we deal with catering. So make sure to ask where ingredients are from, how the food is grown, processed and transported. Maybe suggest vegetarian/vegan meals first & meat secondary instead? Assess religious & cultural gastronomy restrictions for attendees inclusion, help local agriculture & fight against poverty. This is how much we can do when we pick catering!
Demand for events is definitely picking up!
Debate on virtual vs live events but with a new habits & tools behaviour analysis. My favourite analogy is with television and live play in theatre. There's an audience for both and a moment for each one so stop trying to pick sides!
Event Tech can be overwhelming so make sure you are guided by the specialists:
What's spreading faster than covid? Bad news online!
A special for Sustainable Gastronomy Day, what will catering do post covid?
Looking for a job in events? Here are some hiring options:

Tips to build online trust from the Mice Blog:
So the DELTA variant is causing some delays in events fully coming back live in the UK...
But Football seems to be receiving a special favour. Don't get me wrong, I'm excited for the hospitality industry to be benefiting from these large scale events, I'm just trying to figure out the logics.
Book recommendations to grow:
Social media presence is key to your success as a freelancer but also as a company, though keep in mind your publications are not relevant for long as listed below. Using the right hashtags could make those searchable for the future but evergreen content with blog pieces, podcasts, youtube videos etc. is complimentary to cover more ground visibility for a longer period of time.
We love those debates on twitter!
The Euro Football Cup started and the opening ceremony was a success!
The space for audio-based social media is getting cramped as many competitors are entering the game! Who's going to win?
