At Gourmet Catering you’ll find us at our permanent home, Beachside Nelson Conference and Events Centre. One of the reasons we’ve moved into these premises is because it allows us to offer turnkey solutions for conferences. We have all the elements in place to make your event a success. Well thought out spaces, a good range of AV equipment, on-site parking and easy access from Nelson’s airport, plus a host of motel accommodation on our doorstep if your conference is a multi-day event. And then, of course, there is that vital part of any event… The food! This is where we come into our own, read on to discover why conference catering is so important for a successful event.
Three reasons why Conference Catering is so important:
The first speaker after lunch always has the hardest gig at any conference, and the delegate’s post-lunch slump is often a result of soggy sandwiches or dodgy deep-fried disasters, playing havoc with blood sugar levels. But at Gourmet Catering we feed your delegates well with fresh brain-enhancing goodies. We feel fortunate that we live in an area with bountiful local food producers. Wherever possible, we’ll use fresh, local suppliers, giving your delegates a real taste of the beautiful Top of the South region.
Break Times can bring out the Best in your People:
Of course, it’s not just the food that you serve that can be mood-enhancing. It’s also the time that you serve it. Regular breaks are important for your delegates. They’ll often have their best team discussions or do the most networking during morning and afternoon tea. That’s why we offer an all-day conference catering menu with a simple pricing structure at Beachside Nelson. There’s a choice of options for morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea.
Good Sandwiches = Success:
Good conference catering can make or break your event. Delegates will forgive you if you have AV technical difficulties (although you won’t at Beachside Nelson 😉), but serve bad food and they will, quite rightly, be grumpy. Your feedback forms are sure to reflect this!
