The Captivating Culinary Delights of Saint Germain Catering

Add Some Excitement to Your Office Catering

With conference season back in full swing, one of the ways to keep your attendees happy and excited is by keeping their stomachs full.

At the end of the day, many people remember if the coffee ran out or that their dinner at the keynote event was cold. But, they also remember the creativity involved with putting the event together, the layouts of the tables, and types of food that were generally served. All these things matter to your attendees, will play a pivotal role in their overall experiences, and help determine whether or not they will attend next year’s conference. So, keep these in mind when planning your next corporate event.

Here are a few tips to add a bit of pizzazz to your next corporate meeting:

  • Get attendees out of bed! Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Even when attending conferences, you need to eat a good breakfast. Serve an assortment of hot and cold items. Consider even having an omelet bar at your next event to get people pumped up for the day’s sessions.
  • Take away the afternoon blues. The 3 p.m. lull doesn’t just hit you when you are sitting at the office, but can put a damper on attendees’ moods. Keep their spirits up by offering some delicious snacks like coffees, espressos and teas paired with homemade cookies and cakes. Or, if you really want to get them going, throw in some yogurt parfaits and mini sandwiches or even sliders.
  • Did anyone “say cheese?” A platter of assorted cheeses, crackers and breads can be pure enjoyment for your attendees. It is also a great tool to use for networking. You can’t help, but see the amount of engagement that goes around a platter of cheese and crackers.
  • Create a serene green room for your speakers. Just as much as you want to keep your attendees happy, you also want to keep your speakers happy (they are in fact the stars of your show!). Create a calming ambiance in your green room. Provide an assortment of cookies, waters, and even some iced tea because even the best speakers get nervous before they go on!
