Home / Meeting Planner Tip of the Month  / Great Ways To Save Money On Food And Beverage

Follow these tips and you’ll be sure to save some money on food and beverage at your next event!

 

  • CONTRACT IT

Negotiate a food and beverage discount with the hotel during contract negotiations

  • SPONSORSHIP

Companies are looking for new ways to market their products to your attendees so give them a chance (while saving yourself money) and let them sponsor your food and beverage events

  • LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION

Put reception food tables against the wall rather than in the center of a room because less access to the table means less food consumption

  • KNOW YOUR AUDIENCE

If your attendees can’t tell the difference between standard and premium liquor brands, don’t invest in the premium

  • COMMUNICATE

Talk to the Chef personally and give them your budget so that they can give you cost-saving ideas and suggestions

  • FRONT DOOR

Put more expensive food closer to the front door, and less expensive food in the back

  • INVENTORY

Check out your venue’s inventory of tables, chairs, linens, and decorations, because using in-house stock is a lot cheaper than renting

  • ELIMINATE WASTE

Plan the number of special meals (vegetarian, kosher, etc.) that will be needed, so extra meat dishes don’t go to waste
