What’s a Trend Worth?

What Planners and Suppliers Want

Participants of Collinson Media & Events’ Trends Fest sessions identified industry-specific actions they would like to see in response to general trends including:

> More sustainable practices to reduce waste

> Safety and prevention education and programs to address safety issues at conventions and trafficking in the hospitality industry

> Standardized contractual RFPs to reduce overload experienced by planners and suppliers

> More micromeetings: concise, brief, topic-specific presentations

> Carbon footprint calculators for meetings

> Better food options and less waste: convention menus posted on event websites to involve attendees; more chefs involved in initial F&B meetings; closer monitoring of consumption and cost by venue  —Collected by Collinson staff member Jessica Warren
