Looking for a way to still cook meals at home but just don’t have the time to do it all? Home Chef is a food delivery service with a fresh twist. Great for working professionals like planners, the company makes meal planning and grocery shopping a breeze by giving you meal ideas, shopping for you, portioning everything out and delivering fresh ingredients to your doorstep. All you have to do is cook.

Home Chef subscribers can pick from a rotating weekly menu of eight to 10 meal options. Culinary Director Justin Paruszkiewicz and his team create recipes like mushroom risotto, carne asada with mashed black beans, and shrimp and grits. Choices also work well to accommodate a number of dietary restrictions and habits with options for vegetarian, vegan, low-calorie, low-carb, gluten-free, dairy-free and other eating preferences. Recently, the service partnered with protein brand Gardein to provide meatless meal options and also now offers smoothie options for the morning and afternoon, too. Home Chef is based in Chicago but delivers to 30 states in the Midwest and East Coast.  

Virtual events and digital skills have become vital to the meetings and events industry like never before. As it wasn’t absolutely necessary for planners to have these skills before the pandemic, the Professional Convention Management Association (PCMA) stepped in to help professionals obtain the skills they need to help contribute to the future of meetings and events.

 

Food trucks and meetings have gone hand in hand prior to March—but the pandemic and the resulting increase in outdoor events has launched the Andiamo Food Truck to new heights.

 

Virtual and hybrid events will be the norm for quite some time. To effectively host an event that is completely virtual or hybrid, meeting planners will need to partner with a skilled audio-visual team to provide the technical expertise and show production knowledge.
