Edgewater, MD, February 02, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Author and allergen-free event consultant Stephanie Courtney announced today the release of The Art of Planning Allergen-Free Events, published by Outskirts Press. Although there is not yet a U.S. law defining “allergen free,” in today’s litigious society, planners of events both large and small need the knowledge and tools Courtney provides here to ensure their gatherings remain safe for people with food allergies.
As food allergies and intolerances take a larger and larger place in today’s media and legal spotlights, attendees of events look for greater certainty that they are going to have a safe and enjoyable, allergen-free experience at meetings or social events. Courtney’s fifteen years as an event planning consultant, as well as her own first hand experience with family food allergies, make her tips and tricks to hold food-safe events ones readers can have confidence in.
Whether putting on a corporate seminar or a neighborhood birthday party, Courtney’s readers will learn how to identify and understand what food allergies and intolerances are and will see how to set up and delver an allergen-safe event.
Event planners, in particular, can benefit from Courtney’s expertise as they become adept at:
• Identifying potential risks and exposure by gathering information beforehand
• Managing event risks through specific protocols with food service providers
• Educating clients about how they can help keep attendees safe
• Tracking and communicating essential allergy information during an event
• Learning how to modify goods and services to accommodate allergies
• Identifying medically sanctioned organizations and resources for different allergies
Courtney’s new guide is a simple, brief, but complete manual that provides all the essential secrets for holding safe and successful allergen-free events.
