What Should You Serve at Your next Day Corporate Function?

Catered corporate function venues on the Gold Coast at Currumbin RSL

When planning your next corporate function on the Gold Coast, it’s important to take a few minutes to think about the menu. The food at a corporate function is important as it will set the tone of your function. We all know that people are very motivated by their food, so the menu will be an important factor of determining whether people will attend any of your future events. Let’s be honest, most of us get excited at the prospect of the food that we’re going to be served at a conference, and learning is a hungry business!

Plan Your Day and Your Menu

You need to take into account the rest of your day when you plan your menu. Are you planning on serving morning and afternoon tea as well as lunch? Or are you just planning to serve lunch? If you plan on offering morning and afternoon tea as well as lunch, then you should serve a light lunch. Your guests won’t want a heavy lunch if they’re going to be eating regularly throughout the day. At Waterside Events, Currumbin RSL, we offer a couple of different light lunch menu options. Our ‘Delegates on the go’ lunch is perfect for a light lunch. It features rolls, wraps, open Turkish grills, salad and fresh fruit. We also offer three different cocktail menus which are full of delicious canapes and hors d’oeuvres that won’t leave your guests feeling too full and in need of a nap.

Standing Lunches

The lunch options, such as our buffet style lunch and the ‘Delegates on the run luncheon’ are perfect for standing lunches. These are a great option if your attendees have been sitting down all day and will want to stretch their legs, and encourage attendees to mingle.

We offer some delicious options for conferences wishing to serve morning and/or afternoon tea. Whether you’re interested in sweet or savoury options, we’ve got you covered! Also, all our Delegate break packages come with a fresh fruit platter and tea and coffee.

Our 3 Mini Buffet Choices

If you are not serving snacks throughout the day for your corporate function, and would prefer to serve a more substantial lunch to your attendees, our world class kitchen team has some fantastic options for you to choose from. We have three mini buffets to choose from: Australiana, Flavours of Italy and Indian Delights. Each of these mini buffets comes with a few different mains, sides such as rice, vegetables or salads, a dessert option and a fruit platter. This is a great option for conferences which involve the attendees moving around quite a bit.

Our Full Buffet

We also offer a full buffet, the Delegates Fork Menu. This delicious option includes a choice of three different hot dishes, three salads, an antipasto platter, petite dinner rolls, assorted petite fours and cheese and crackers. There is a lot to choose from in this package, making it easy to customise this to your functions needs. As well as being a substantial meal which will make afternoon tea unnecessary, this package is best suited to a more formal sit down lunch.

Give Your Guests A Break

If you decide to go with a substantial lunch and skip morning tea and/or afternoon tea, make sure you still give your attendees regular breaks throughout the day. A chance to stretch their legs, grab a coffee, have a quick chat or even go to the bathroom will keep your attendees happy and ensure they are able to take in all the information you’re giving them.

Post Conference Session

If you are interested in holding a post corporate conference mingling session with food or drinks our team can help there too. We offer a range of post conference cocktail options and drinks packages to suit every style of function.

The best advice we can offer is to ensure you give your attendees regular breaks, provide lots of coffee, ensure there’s plenty of food and give your attendees some sugar in the afternoon, whether it’s a sugary afternoon tea break or lollies on the table, it’ll help your guests power through that afternoon slump.
