As a reputable Miami event planning team, we understand the importance of keeping an audience interested and alert at any event, conference, or meeting. What type of food/snacks are you providing to attendees? This could be the reasons for their sluggishness, and seeming inattentiveness.
Certain foods can be stimulating, helping keep your audience focused and attentive. This is critical, particularly if you are going all-out to hold your conference, seminar, or other event in Miami and traveling a substantial distance, such as from Boston, New York, or anywhere else in the northeast! The success of your event is vital, so you want to do everything possible to make sure it accomplishes your goals and is remembered by all who attend.
Planning the menu is just one aspect of what we do at Events & Logistics, so we thought we would help by giving you a few expert tips.
Start the day with breakfast. Considering pastries? Perhaps not such a good idea. Better options are fruit, granola, Greek yogurt, whole-wheat bagels, or even oatmeal served in mugs. Be sure to offer up plenty of juice, coffee, and water!
When lunch time rolls around, skip the heavy meals and foods that leave attendees preferring a nap over the afternoon’s events. Good lunch choices include fresh veggies and dip, small sandwiches or wraps made with light chicken salad or turkey, and fruit. Desert is not a must, so you may want to skip rich sweets.
Healthy snacks help fuel the brain. Most people enjoy munching occasionally when attending a meeting or conference, so you want to keep some healthy snacks on hand. Consider nuts, berries, fruit, or trail mix provided in small bowls.
As far as beverages go, water, unsweetened tea, and juice are great for keeping your audience hydrated. If you intend to host a cocktail hour, think wine and low-cal cocktail options instead of margaritas or other drinks that are loaded with calories.
Healthy fare can make all of the difference in the engagement level of your audience!
