When should I order a half day delegate meeting package?

The half-day delegate meeting package is the best catering option for meetings, functions, seminars, conferences, and training days. It’s also a great option for workshops, expos, classes, and lectures. 

Choose the half-day meeting package when hosting a meeting or event that will fall during traditional mealtime. Instead of letting guests go hungry, a half-day meeting package ensures there’s always food around to snack on during your event. 

What are the best foods to cater for a meeting?

Food & beverages are a must-have at any conference, meeting, or seminar. It shows your guests that they are valued and appreciated while also providing some sustenance to give them brain power during your event. But not all foods will farewell at a meeting! They need to be easy-to-eat, nourishing, simple, and not too overpowering in scent. Here are the best foods to serve at your meeting: 

  • Fresh fruit. Ideally, fresh fruit would be served alongside some more substantial snacks, but either way, fruit is essential to meeting food. Simple and nutritious, fruit provides a good dose of energy to keep people fuelled at meetings. It’s also an easy win – everybody eats fruit and when you have a good variety there’s something for everyone to snack on. 
  • Baked foods. Pies, quiches, tartlets… baked goods are prized meeting foods thanks to their ease of eating. They’re easy to eat with the hands during a meeting and make minimal noise while chewing – perfect! Baked foods are also popular as they can be eaten during the morning, afternoon, or evening. 
  • Sweet treats. Every meeting needs a good dose of sugar to keep spirits high, and sweet pastries or treats are one way to do it. Not everyone can reach for another cup of coffee! Make sure your guests have the chance to munch on something sugary and delicious to keep them alert and interested. 

5 food & beverage trends for your meeting

Want to impress your clients or guests with on-trend food? Here are the top five trends in food & beverages for meetings:

  • Eat local. Or hyperlocal where possible. Australian products are great, but if you can find food that has been grown or harvested in your local area then even better. The same goes for seafood and meat – if you can source these products from local farms or co-ops then do so. So many people are growing more conscious of their carbon footprint and looking for foods that have been grown in their local environment. Eating locally shows guests that you support your community, are eco-conscious, and proud of your local area. 
  • Drink from small breweries & wineries. Craft beers and wines are experiencing an enormous upward trend as more people stray from mainstream brands and look for small-batch experiences. They want to try new and different flavours, unique brewing methods, and alcohol that features more personality. Having local wines and beers at your event is another great way to support your local community and provides a fun experience when hosting clients from abroad. 
  • Different ingredients. People want food to look familiar but feel different. Especially at meetings, you want grab & go food that’s easy to eat, but that doesn’t mean it has to be boring. Spice up a tart with exotic ingredients or go for a fusion meal that’s refreshing and different. 
  • Eco & sustainable. In line with the upward trend in eating local is eating sustainably. People are more interested in eco-friendly foods that are friendly for the environment and ethically produced. Source fair trade ingredients where possible and avoid processed foods where you can. Always choose foods with recyclable packaging.
