Kombucha break with locally sourced kombuchas

The 7th Annual Meet Well, held last week at Opal Sands Resort in Clearwater Beach, FL, was an equal balance of ideas for healthy meetings and strategies for self-care.

Meet Well introduced ideas for creative, healthy, tasty F&B, from fresh flowerpot beet salads to the resort’s signature kombucha break featuring locally sourced kombuchas.

Our speakers were an inspiration—Rachelle Stone & Vimari Roman on beating burnout, John Ayo on healthy travel habits, Rachael Riggs on incorporating wellbeing into events and Jennifer Squeglia on the new era of healthy F&B.

There was time built into the agenda for attendees to focus on their own wellbeing, whether that meant yoga, beach walks or dolphin spotting in this spectacular setting. At the opening reception, everyone had a chance to create their own perfume with the guidance of Scentrifugal Events, and learned how scent is an integral part of the attendee experience. And so much more.

Everyone left feeling refreshed, with new tools for meeting well.
