Lunch in a bag
Style of event: Full day conference
Location: Tobacco Dock, London
Client brief: Conference with refreshment breaks, healthy eating lunch bags and ice creams in the afternoon
How Richmond met the brief:
Tobacco Dock is a striking and beautiful venue with beautiful oak beams to support a vaulted roof with traditional glass lanterns atop a solid, Victorian brick built warehouse space. The venue is able to accommodate over 3000 guests but the variety of spaces allowed itself to be a perfect setting for this conference with separate meeting rooms.
Format of the day-
08.30 – Guests arrive, tea, coffee, Danish pastries served
09.30 – Conference commences
11.00 – 11.30 – tea, coffee, biscuits served
12.30 – Lunch bags, strawberry and banana smoothies and juices served
14.00 – Conference recommences
15.30 – 16.00 Tea, coffee, biscotti and mini muffins served with ice creams
17.00 – Conference ends, guests depart
Richmond worked hard throughout the day to ensure guests received impeccable service and regularly replenished water stations due to the heat on the day. The flexibility of the menu and service meant guests could find a cool spot in the unique and vast venue without any worry to the organiser.
As temperatures peaked at 27°C the organiser decided delegates had been healthy enough and asked us to provide ice creams to cool them down for the afternoon. The lunch bags were a new challenge for Richmond but keen to meet the brief we sourced bio degradable packaging in keeping with the company’s ethos and planned a healthy lunch that would offer delegates enough choice and remain within budget.
Healthy eating lunch – served in sustainable, recyclable brown paper lunch bags and individual bio degradable containers, cutlery and napkins.
