Sometimes meetings and events can be laborious, a necessary evil when it comes to networking or discussing future business goals. Nonetheless, there are clever ways to put some oomph back into the conference room and get your guests excited about the day.
Get tongues wagging
Food is always going to play a big role in any meeting or event; it gives people a chance to relax after a professional discussion, and it's often what they’re thinking about when they’re checking their watches. The right choice of buffet food will reflect well on your company; it will impress those who you want to impress and be a talking point long after the event itself. So, what ways can you ensure success with your event catering?
When the sun’s out
Why not go for something unconventional - something that will inspire lively discussion, a real novelty that your guests haven’t experienced before in all those dull meeting rooms of the past? If the sun’s shining, you could organise a meeting in a park or other outdoor space with a quintessential English picnic! It's a casual take on all those stuffy business events that have you gazing out of the window in longing for a break outside.
Be culturally creative
Surprise your guests by stepping away from traditional buffet food with a tasty cultural theme instead. You could experiment with flavours from all over the globe as an innovative way to let your colleagues try out something new. Spanish tapas is a perfect choice for a spicy buffet spread that has a wide selection of tidbits so there’s something for everyone. Jasper’s Catering Services also offers Bamboo buffets, inspired by mid-Atlantic cuisince, which includes chicken skewers, spicy wings, baked buttered corn on the cob, salads and samosas, all served in beautiful bamboo bowls.
Go the whole hog
Maybe you have a long conference scheduled in for the entire day, and you require a more substantial dinner option. Well, you could really impress your guests with a succulent hog roast. Cooked from sumptuous, locally sourced pork and a variety of menu choices, Jasper's hog roasts add class to any function no matter how big or small the size of the party.
