March 8, 2012: Exhibitor 2012

Event Planner shares insights on how to feed people with food allergies at events.
More than 160 foods are known to cause allergic reactions, but eight foods that cause more than any other.

Food-related diseases are on the rise, with approximately 45% of your attendees likely to have one or more of them. The 2008 Americans with Disabilities Act Amendment Act protects some and prohibits discrimination on the basis of having to eat a certain way. On March 8, at Exhibitor 2012, Tracy Stuckrath, CSEP, CMM, CHC, an event professional with food allergies, will help you understand:

  • Who is making these requests and why are they increasing
  • Different dietary needs, from food allergies and intolerances to medical conditions and personal preference
  • Legal reasons to be concerned about meeting these needs
  • When do these “pesky” attendees positively impact your business
  • Managing cost while meeting the needs
