Catering for Multi-Day Events
When organising multi-day events, it can mean working with different suppliers to ensure everything runs smoothly. This may mean months of planning in advance; searching for the right team of support to ensure your function runs on time, and everyone is happy.
If you are a promotions manager, you will have the training and expertise and time to coordinate a team of staff. Maybe you are organising a family holiday or special event that does require personal time to pull everything together. This can be time consuming and sometimes take more of your time than you can really spare.
Speaking with catering companies, you may find that it can be cheaper to work with one catering company to provide all the meals required. This will not only save you time during your event, and will allow you to communicate with one catering manager during the length of your event.
Catering can be tricky, how much food do I order? Will there be enough or too much? Am I catering for those with special dietary requirements? What do I do with any remaining food?
Eliminate the guess work, and hire a catering company that has the equipment and skills required to plan, prepare and serve food for your breakfast, lunches and dinner services. A professional caterer can work with you to ensure guests are well fed and are provided with a range of different food options for the duration of your function.
Work with your supplier to discuss the venue, duration and guest numbers in advance. This will allow plenty of time for your chef to provide an example menu for your multi-day event. Planning in advance will give you the advantage to change meals are required, or modify the menu to suit your budget.
