Managing Food and Beverage Minimums

Providing all of the food and beverage for an event can sometimes be a struggle. Event budgets and meeting venue food and beverage minimums don’t always match, resulting in a delicate balancing act. What can you do to smartly manage the food and beverage minimums?

Zentila.com provides three great tips on how to smartly manage your food and beverage minimums. These tips include:
  • Ask for extra incentives for going over the food and beverage minimum. Negotiate extra suites or other items into the contract if the event is already going to exceed the venue’s food and beverage minimum.
  • Discover the per-day food and beverage minimum. This will help with budgeting before entering into negotiations with the venue.


These tips are just the tip of the iceberg for ideas on managing the food and beverage minimums. How  have you managed these costs?
