Beyond what’s on stage, there are a variety of opportunities for an event to expose you to local businesses who offer goods and services that reflect the local environment and culture. Collaborating with local entrepreneurs in such a way that these entrepreneurs are integrated into the event, creates a more authentic and impactful experience. SHIFT embraces this throughout the SHIFT Summit, but the People’s Banquet demonstrates best practices in supporting local entrepreneurs. Through a collaborative effort with local suppliers six months leading into the event, SHIFT sources food from local farms in Wyoming and Idaho and pairs these producers with restaurants and chefs in Jackson to create a unique menu that keeps it all local. The result is an epic finale to the three-day event with a farm-to-table offering and local craft beer, spirits, and wine selections to pair with the half vegetarian and half responsibly-raised meat menu.
