IACC-Re-imagining Conference Lunches

Expected Changes to Restaurant Service

REEVALUATING PERCENTAGES Until 2020, many IACC venues operated the majority of lunch service, from a centralised restaurant, with service outside of these spaces often representing less than 15% of the total attendee service on any given day. They were nearly always operating a self-serve buffet and/or carvery style service. 2021 and 2022 may see these percentages reversed and IACC venues are arguably well placed to embrace this and provide cross-property multiple lunch areas. Where restaurants

are being reconfigured to separate groups, it is worth considering the importance of separating entrances and exits for attendees as part of the redesign.
