QHotels has launched an innovative new conference menu, bringing
street food to conferences and events in the UK for the first
The new lunch menu follows an intensive six-month period of
research and trials which took QHotels' chefs into cafes, large
chain restaurants and small independents, sampling the latest
culinary trends to assess customers' eating habits and
The customer insight and research revealed that the rise of
street food remains the biggest culinary trend to hit the UK, and
is the cuisine of choice for QHotels' conference customers.
The new 'do it yourself' street food offer allows delegates to
play around with key components and flavours, to tailor dishes to
their own preferences, as well as choose from a range of different

'clean' hot dishes.

the high street was by far the biggest development and proved to be
the most popular in our trials with customers at conferences and
events across the group. The variety, strong flavours and
informality is what's inspired our new and unique conference
