WHAT WORKED FOR YOU (DO'S - write at least 2) –
WHAT TO AVOID (DON'TS - write at least 2) –
Let me add.We use OnArrival for session checking. Our sessions are usually meals.We generally see about 80% check in of those registered.Once we get to 80%, we step away from our posts and find something to eat. :)
I've been pleading with staff to oversell meals by 10% since we always have less attending than what's on the F&B contract.
They fear that 100% of those registered will show up. Over the last 3 years, it's always been around %80 +/- 5%. These statistics don't lie.
