Brand Experience Lab: Food Trends

Theme: “How to Blend Trends, Diets and Sustainability for Delicious Experiences”

Event planning professionals are cordially invited to join us at the table to predict, debate, and shape the future of food and beverage at events.

During this lively gathering, four culinary trends — rules, personalization, predictions, and sustainability — will be chopped, minced, and diced. Our expert panelists will share their "recipes" to help you understand the F&B trends that can make or break your meetings. So put on your apron, grab your chef's hat, and let's get cooking!

Admission is complimentary, but space is limited. Reserve your seat today!

Moderator: Tracy Stuckrath, CSEP, CMM, CFPM, CHC, President & Chief Connecting Officer, thrive! meetings & events
Panelists: Jason Johnston, Executive Chef, MGM National Harbor; April Cunningham, Executive Chef & Owner, Aprils Table; Penelope Freire, CMP, DES, Meetings & Exhibits Manager, American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG); and Suzanne Morrell, MBA, Founder of STM/enterprises, LLC & the DC Event Food Waste Coalition

Special Guest: Joe Popolo

At the May Brand Experience Lab, we'll celebrate Joe Popolo as he transitions from CEO of The Freeman Company to a trusted member of our Board of Directors and chair of the board's finance committee. Join us as we say "so long" (but not goodbye!) to Joe and thank him for the tremendous work he's done in his 22 years with Freeman.
