When it comes to catering for business meetings and events, choices these days are endless. Though as a rule, we’d recommend that your choice of catering should reflect the format of your event. The main focus should be to ensure your delegates are comfortable and feel their needs have been well considered. So, what’s hot on the menu when it comes to event catering trends for the year ahead? We take a look…

Boardroom Picnic

Those stuck indoors in the boardroom all day needn’t miss out on a spot of summertime dining. Treat your guests to an array of delicious bites around the boardroom table. Crisp salads, mini sandwiches, a cheese board… you might even choose to serve it on a gingham checked tablecloth to bring the outdoors in!

Experiential Dining

Another favourite focussed on making food fun, this relaxed approach to delegate dining allows guests to ‘build their own’. Think salad buffets full of fresh seasonal produce, build your own burger stations and big pots of chocolate waiting to be dipped with something delicious.

Party Picnic

Buffet-style business event food works great for large events, as you can better cater for a variety of guests’ tastes and preferences. Choose a range of cold meats, luxury cheeses, plenty of colourful side dishes and a selection of light, refreshing desserts. Serve with plentiful Pimms to get the party started.

Old Classics, Done Well

No matter what the latest trend, classic, hearty lunches will never be off the menu when it comes to event catering. Homemade pies, juicy steaks or fresh fish and chunky chips… comfort foods bring on that hug many of us look forward to part way through the day. Though event planners have an increasingly keener eye for quality and excellence. Whether you’re treating delegates to a three-course lunch or a plentiful buffet, the options can be as simple, though the execution must be exceptional.
