The Topic
Picasso said it all: “Good artists copy, great artists steal”...be shameless about taking great ideas... because Joe Mineo has plenty! The goal of this session is to leave you with ideas that you can take, tweak, and put your own spin on. Joe will share examples of every aspect of design, including food presentation; put to use in different themes, styles, and displays. Joe will show how he repurposes products from event to event. Joe aims to send you home inspired to refresh your approach and renew your success in event design profitability.

Note the time is earlier than our typical programs:
Reception: 4:30 pm
Presentation & Speaker: 5:30 pm
Dinner: 6:30 pm
