The food that you choose to serve when planning a professional meeting is essential to the overall success of the event itself. When you start searching for a meeting and conference center in the local area, make sure to pick a venue that has on-site catering opportunities to make it a lot easier to manage. The Crystal Room Conference Center has a lot of different options for workshops, training sessions, conferences, and even use of our corporate meeting room in Milford, MA. Our Massachusetts meeting rooms are conveniently located within minutes of major highways for easy access from the Greater Boston area, Providence, Cape Cod, and international airports. We are the perfect venue for quarterly meetings, board meetings, planning commissions, and other professional gatherings.
Early morning meetings require a bit of sustenance to get everyone going. Coffee and tea are a must, as well as water bottles and fresh juice. A light, Continental breakfast can be served in the form of fresh fruit, pastries, and other healthy choices; however, a “big breakfast” approach can also be made available, including eggs, breakfast meats, and bread. If you are hosting an early meeting at our meeting room in Milford, MA, speak with our staff about setting up a breakfast or brunch service to help keep everyone focused and on track during the gathering.
Serving lunch at an all-day meeting event should always be on the agenda. You want to keep everyone on-site to avoid delays caused by attendees taking off to visit local restaurants mid-day. Lunch is a great way to retain focus, encourage fellowship and conversation, and show your guests that you care about their well-being and comfort. There are a few ways to go with lunch service, including a buffet-style service or a plated meal in a banquet table setting. Lunch can just be lunch, or it can be a working lunch with food served in the conference room. Lunch can also be a great opportunity to bring in a guest speaker or have some other type of presentation made available during food service.
Choose from a wide range of menu options at our meeting and conference center, including cold sandwiches, pasta dishes, salads, and much more. Speak directly with one of our team members when planning a professional meeting to make sure that we coordinate food service according to your meeting schedule. We can serve food in the Massachusetts meeting rooms or set up a separate space for food service. Our event planner can help with tables, chairs, linens, seating options, and service staff. Browse our website for examples of menu ideas available at our meeting room in Milford, MA.
If your guests are staying all day for a meeting, consider offering dinner service at the end of the day. In some cases, bringing everyone back for a formal dinner banquet after a long day of meetings, workshops, and conference discussions can be a great way to end on a positive note. This is a great idea for annual conventions, quarterly meetings, board conferences, and other all-day or multi-day events. Our team can provide you with a buffet or plated meal service, depending on your needs. Choose from a large selection of traditional banquet food items, popular local dishes, and regional favorites.
Similar to lunch service, dinner can also be a great time to integrate other activities in when planning a professional meeting. An awards dinner, special guest speaker, or some form of entertainment can also be provided to help keep things light and fun. Meet with our event coordinator to discuss all of the options available for dinner service in our Massachusetts meeting rooms. Choose from appetizers and hors-d’oeuvres, entrees and side dishes, desserts, and special occasion ideas that you can use to create a memorable event.
