Fat content and added sugar are kept low and the the focus is on creating menus that deliver great taste while maintaining stable blood sugar levels so that delegates experience optimal concentration and minimal fatigue.
Experience Meetings also leverages technology to ensure superior connectivity for both participants and meetings planners. All meeting delegates can expect free internet access throughout their events at all Radisson Blu properties.

In addition, Experience Meetings is the only meeting planner loyalty program that automatically purchases carbon credits that offset the estimated carbon footprint of every event.
