Think About Your Attendees
Knowing who your attendees are helps narrow your food selection. Do they have dietary restrictions? Are they health conscious? Is your audience young? Questions like these will lead you down a path that shows you care and took considerable time searching for the right selection.
To ensure everyone gets something they like, consider offering a variety of foods. You can ask for meal preferences beforehand or supply various options on the day of. Doing this will allow your guests to eat what they like, leading to higher enjoyment and satisfaction throughout your event.
Consider Using Food Stations
Food stations are convenient setups that keep your guests on their toes and allow them to eat what they want. You can choose from an assortment of station types, from carving stations and pasta bars to design-your-own-donut tables and pizza stations — the possibilities are endless.
These stations work great for drinks as well. Set up designated areas for wine connoisseurs, mixed-drink enthusiasts and beer lovers to have something for everyone while reducing lines and wait times. Don't forget those who don't drink — create areas for coffee, juice or soda.
What's great about these stations is that many of them can be completely self-serve. Some areas like carving stations or omelet bars may require an attendant, but most enable attendees to come and go as they please, which is a freedom many individuals want nowadays.
Choose a Theme
No matter what corporate event food and drink ideas you plan on using, it's essential to make your event stand out from others your guests have attended. Incorporating a theme will keep your attendees engaged and interested. Whichever theme you choose, you could center your food and drinks around it to create a stunningly immersive experience.
Some potential event theme ideas to consider:
- German Festival
- Winter Wonderland
