Thirty senior meeting planners from organizations ranging from KPMG to The National Cattlemen's Beef Association converged on the Hilton Westchester for Prevue's Duty of Care Summit.
Meet Well Attendees wore exercise clothes for the meeting day, and donned slippers given out by the hotel. During lunch, the MGM Grand's chefs shared the philosophies and practices behind the special Stay Well menu. A whiteboard listed ideas for integrating wellness into meetings and everyone left signing a pledge to plan healthier meetings.
During an exclusive cocktail party on the red carpet, attendees had the chance to watch the stars—from Pink to the Korean boy band BTS—arrive and pose for photos before moving into the show.
Even the F&B echoed the theme, with opportunities for attendees to design their own grilled cheese sandwiches, make their own smoothies and shake their own salads.
Duty of care was a hot topic at the ANavigating International Meetings Summit, held in Houston in May.
"A name badge with Microsoft on it screams kidnapping in cerrtain parts of the world."
From Tai Chi to aromatherapy, attendees at the premier Meet Well conference, held last week in Las Vegas, experienced dozens of wellness touches that they could take back to their own events.
The Meet Well attendees referred to practicing "sneaky wellness," in other words, finding ways to sneak in healthy elements regardless.
