Roaming Hunger

Take a new approach to catering—bring a food truck to your event. As Successful Meetings shows, some event planners are capitalizing on the food truck trend currently sweeping many cities. The benefits come in the form of a fresh catering approach. “Offering creative culinary fare on the fly and on the go, they’re affordable, convenient, fast and delicious,” the publication’s Matt Alderton writes in a separate article. One site that could get your portable nosh on the move? Roaming Hunger, a startup devoted to helping you find (and hire) food trucks. (ht @SummitExCentre)

Changing Roles

Wearing several hats could be a good thing for your career. When analyzing what you’ve done so far in your career and what you hope to accomplish, an embrace of constant change could shape your future. In an article for the Professional Convention Management Association’s Convene magazine, the editors suggest the future of event planners’ careers involves taking on new roles—something that could help them discover new realms within (and outside) of the industry. From technology and budgets to contracts and networking, you should be well-versed in each area of event planning and prepared to take on new ones, the editors report.  (ht @FAMTripTV)
