The popularity of early morning breakfast meetings

shows no sign of slowing down in 2020 and with more

and more hire venues, hotels and conference centres

creating a breakfast menu that’s full of flavour as well

as nutritional value, waking up your delegates to a

stimulating meeting, presentation or networking

session is not difficult when there’s an enticing

breakfast on the agenda!

Smoothies, super grain and seed energy

bars, fresh fruit, veggie snacks and dark

chocolate are powering delegates into

early morning success through increasing

energy levels, aiding concentration

and chasing away those early morning

hunger pangs. And another huge bonus

of organising a morning meeting is that

delegates not only get to breakfast like a

king, they have the remainder of the day

to work!

If you’re looking for a new location and a new

venue for the New Year, we’ve selected a mix of

meeting rooms that feed the imagination in addition

to feeding the delegate! Along with a well crafted

breakfast, delegates can anticipate great connectivity,

superb services and comfortable facilities. And for

those on 24-hour delegate rates, evening dining is just

as exciting, enticing and enjoyable!
