Our Advisory Council Says...

“I have personally been attending the Catersource convention for almost 10 years now. It is a completely different set of event professionals to network with and be inspired by. The event ideas and convention floor holds different ideas that I get at other conventions. As a designer, I need to pay attention to food and beverage trends and unique ways of bringing that experience to my clients. This convention filled with different ideas and perspectives. I find it to be essential to me being a well-rounded, event professional on top of all event trends.” - David Merrell, CEO/Creative Director, AAO Events, Inc.
