Shackman Associates New York has 2 ideas to keep your meeting healthy and adventurous:
1. Healthy Menus. We help develop menus for banquets and galas with a local flavor from produce growers and farmers. New York is also the home to a boom in "raw food". Restaurants with catering and event options have been popping up near hot, new boutique hotels and raw food - never cooked above 118 degrees Fahrenheit - has become a Manhattan gourmet delicacy with fans that include celebrities and former President Bill Clinton.
2. Park races, active tours and scavenger hunts. With more park space than any other major city, “active” eventsoptions are abundant throughout Manhattan. Two attendee favorites are organized bike tours or races and scavenger hunts through Central and Riverside Parks. During attendee downtime, there are numerous free options – including race walking programs and 45-minute deep yoga sessions. Several specialized yoga studios have opened in the Meatpacking District and many of Manhattan’s new hotels boasts state-of-the-art gyms.
