Hot Food & Beverage Trends of 2017

But what can the meetings and events industry expect? Eight experts weigh in on what the New Year will bring (both in and out). Our favorites? Edible spray paint, high-end catering ware, Asian-Pacific cuisine (especially if it involves poke) and an end to pretentious bartenders. 

Sit down, take notes and think about how you can incorporate all of this into your 2017 fetes, retreats and more.
