How to persist attributes of a calendar folder and its items?

When users book a room resource for a meeting they frequently want to specify

additional attributes like catering and other consumables. I realize there

are commercial solutions for this kind of thing but how would you suggest

managing this type of requirement through VBA? It would be useful to

associate consumables with meetings but also track an inventory of

consumables too.

Possibilities I've considered include using custom attributes in MS

Exchange, extended MAPI properties or pointers to an external database.
 
The resource management software I've seen and written usually sets up

resources as additional resource mailboxes, or if that's not appropriate

(like for a catering menu) then named MAPI properties or Outlook

UserProperties are usually used for that.
