Food and drink is one of the most talked about things at
conferences and events, and we know how important it is to get it
right, which is why we continue to refresh and develop our
The biggest challenge that venues face with conference menus is
being able to produce dishes to suit a wide range of tastes and
dietary requirements. And this means that, historically, conference
food has consisted of two to three safe and standard options. But,
not for much longer…
We have taken a completely new approach to understanding what
delegates want at conferences, in order to challenge traditional
perceptions of conference food and go beyond the 'expected' meal
We looked to the high street to really understand what our
delegates want and get into their mind set when they're choosing
what to eat outside of conferences.
We spent time going into different cafes, large chain
restaurants and small independents, to sample the latest culinary
trends and assess customers' eating habits.
And what we found out was really interesting! It was clear that
the rise of street food was by far the biggest development in
recent years and something that should inspire our new menu.
We know that the variety, strong flavours and informality will
go down well with customers across the group.
A range of menus will be available on different days, including
Pan-Asian, Indian, Mexican, Japanese, boutique fish and chips and
chicken, giving delegates the chance to play around with textures
and flavours to suit their own tastes.
Clean eating is another growing trend on the high street, so
we've included 'centrepiece salads' in our new menu, which feature
a selection of raw ingredients, from nuts to fennel
So, if you're organising or attending a conference at QHotels
over the coming months, you'll get the chance to experience all
that the new menu has to offer. Plus, one in 10 delegates attending
an event before the end of June can go free!
