Eat & Greet

November 17, 2010

Omelets with cheese, mushrooms or parsley? Asian inspired dim sum, sushi, or noodles? Whatever your choice is it doesn’t matter, as long as you’re making it by the food station.

The known benefit of a food station is its impact on the pocket, as food stations tend to be significantly less pricey than sit down dinners, however recently it has been discovered that this economic serving choice has much more benefit than what was originally bargained for. Standing food stations combine the benefits of choosing your own food as with a buffet but with the added option of customizing it and suiting it to your desires as with a served sit-down dinner, all the while maximizing networking and socialization.

It is suggested that guests be served appetizers in their seats (if available) and then be encouraged to wander between the food stations picking their desired foods.  We at Kaleidoscope like to have fun with the food stations and often have different themes in accordance with cuisine or that tie in to the overall feel and vibe of the event.

The importance of maximizing socialization possibilities is not just for corporate and medical events. Private events and incentive meetings should also encourage guests to mingle – if not for business connections, then for personal enjoyment which will undoubtedly improve the overall mood. Standing food stations, or action stations as they are sometimes called, encourage guests to mingle and reduce the tension of professional relationships.

Some food stations that are often used include: sushi, tapas, sandwich, stir-fry, omelets, pasta, chicken, and carving. Have fun with your food and always encourage your guests to socialize.
