IACC-Re-imagining Conference Refreshment Breaks

PRE-PACKAGED FOOD Although we may have been forced to act quickly in providing pre-packaged foods, such as break boxes with multiple items included, they do not have to be uninspiring. Instead IACC venues have free licence to get really creative in this space and develop these into an attractive offer, which is preferred in the future over past methods of service. The serving of pre-packaged items can result in two other outcomes. Firstly, it reduces the amount of time attendees spend at stations, reducing queues. It also encourages attendees to travel further to consume items. Sigtunahojden Conference Hotel in Sweden noticed more attendees taking their boxed break and consuming it outdoors, than they would normally see with non-packaged service.
