Our Approach to Catering Sales Meetings

We start by trying to understand the attendees and the goal of the meeting. Generally sales meetings are focused on:

  • engaging and motivating sales people (e.g., chairman's circle awards)
  • creating engaging experiences where sales people can meet and build relationships with clients (e.g., capabilities demonstration at a client office)
  • bringing together top customers and prospects to discuss new product capabilities or launch new features or models (e.g., sponsored happy hour with announcement at an industry event)

Sales meetings often require catering setups that bring energy, create excitement, and highlight the brand in a positive light. We work hard with you to design something that will feel seamless, create a positive environment for brand connection and great conversations, and potentially can generate do something to have enthusiasts promote your event to their friends and colleagues.
