When attending a conference or a business meeting, quite often there is a luncheon that the attenders will take part in. This luncheon can be quite elaborate or a simple sandwich bar with some snacks and drinks. Regardless of how elaborate you want the business luncheon you should look into a catering hall, or catering service, to take care of the details. If you are in charge of your next business luncheon you will want to pay attention to some specific tips to help it be a great success.
Any planner will want to find out how many people will be attending the function. Take some time to find out these things so that you can have a better idea of how much food that caterers, or catering hall, will need to prepare. Once you know how many people you can then move to what type of food will be needed for the luncheon. Most likely you will only need to make decisions on food while the caterer prepares a menu.
Once you know the food, and any other special dietary needs, you should sit down and comprise a budget. This will not only make your bosses happy, but will help you make better decisions on what is needed and what is not. If the budget allows you can then have a bigger variety of food items, or theme foods like Mexican, Chinese, etc.
If this business luncheon is also an opportunity for a presentation to be made, it is important to make sure that the facilities have the capabilities needed. If not you will need to enlist help to set up podiums, microphones, sound, projectors and anything else that is needed.
Do not let any of your preparation reflect the haste. If you could not arrange for something due to time constraint, it is perfectly fine. But incomplete preparation can create false impressions and yield unwanted results. Business lunch catering within a short notice can be difficult but not impossible.
