Event Organizer

Planning a successful event goes far beyond the logistics of booking hotels and ordering food. It should market, brand and grow your organization. It should also inspire, energize and celebrate your employees, participants, vendors and customers. To manage the details of an event takes a significant amount of time, money and resources. Can you afford it?

Most events typically at least one meal function in the agenda whether breakfast, breaks, lunch, a cocktail reception, or dinner. And, while food and beverage (F&B) is typically the largest event expenditure, it often gets the least amount of attention. Rising food and labor costs, the ever-growing list dietary needs and the push to eliminate food waste, makes it all that more important to focus on it. thrive!’s Culinary Concierge solutions provides you with an intentional and conscience approach that allows you to provide for your attendees, reduce waste, and save money.
