This week marked the fifth panel event that we've hosted,
bringing together our members to discuss new tech developments and
the changing expectations of F&B in the events industry. We've
recently welcomed some new professionals to our
Events Profs Panel so the two-day event was a perfect
opportunity to introduce them to the rest of the group and to get
some new perspectives.
This time the event was held at The Cheltenham Chase Hotel and
included a luxury banqueting experience to showcase QHotels'
winning chef menu and gin experience. The following day the group
was joined by specialists from Universal Live to share the latest
technology advancements being used in the events industry including
virtual reality, augmented reality and projection mapping.
After the tech demonstrations QHotels' F&B Director, Chris
Eigelaar, showcased our new C&E lunch menu, highlighting the
research that we underwent to understand what F&B options
should be provided by venues when it comes to meeting delegate
The event closed with a guest appearance from Seedlip, creators
of distilled non-alcoholic spirits, giving attendees a chance to
taste its products and discuss whether these kinds of non-alcoholic
drinks could be a more prominent feature in future conferences and
