The Certified Catering Consultants (CCC) team will again be offering 30-minute consulting sessions during Catersource/The Special Event at the Mandalay Bay Conference Center in Las Vegas.  These sessions are complimentary for registered conference attendees. All complimentary consulting sessions will be held at the Mandalay Bay Conference Center, Ballroom Oceanside G on Level 2 of the South Convention Center. The sessions will be held on Tuesday March 10, Wednesday March 11, and until noon on Thursday March 12.

Because of limited time and space availability, we recommend that you sign up now using this form.

Applicants will be notified on or before Thursday, March 5 or earlier if their preferred consultant and time are available. If not, the applicants will be offered alternative options and/or a place on the waiting list. Any open sessions will then be offered on a first-come, first-served basis onsite during the conference.

NOTE: We will be sending a final confirmation and will require you to confirm the appointment by 5 pm the day prior to your meeting. Failure to do so will result in cancellation of your appointment slot and the appointment time will be offered to waiting list applicants.
