The business of events is not for the meek. Being a successful event professional has traditionally required the perfect blend of flawless social skills, savvy marketing, adaptability, and a dash of humour. And that was what was needed before the global pandemic. These days event professionals are Zen masters in uncertainty.
It hasn’t been an easy profession lately. But hope is on the horizon. And if you’re looking for ways to be better this year, we have three simple suggestions. Spoiler alter: they all involve self-care.
Taste new foods regularly
A good life is a series of good moments. And one tried-and-true way to have a good moment is by eating good food. Over the past couple years, we’ve naturally gravitated toward comfort foods, stuff that is familiar and soothing. Perhaps this year is the optimal time to branch out and try new things. The side benefit? You’ll inevitably find new culinary experiences for your attendees.

Upgrade your accommodations
Frequent travellers understand the nuances of hotels — notably that not all hotels are created equally. If you’re going to be on the road regularly this year, maybe it’s time to start incorporating more opulent properties into your itinerary? Whether they offer rooftop plunge pools or five-star dining or patented sleep systems, luxury hotels all have one thing in common: they focus on your wellbeing. And that’s worth its weight in gold.
When you’re travelling for business, try to tack on a few days at the end of your trip and dedicate those days to rejuvenation. This will probably mean visiting a spa for a body massage, a facial, or simply to access a relaxing environment to tune out completely. After all, you’re worth it!
