Street food comes to UK conferences

Conference menu

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 menus.

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 options.

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 seeds. 

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!
