Why catering halls trump restaurants for any corporate event

Consider your event needs before you book a venue

Corporate events are the backbone of any large company. They include demonstrating the latest products, celebrating milestones, informing the public and recognizing employees. Whether your company hosts yearly or monthly conferences, trade shows, dinners, ceremonies or networking events, the Inn at New Hyde Park explains why catering halls are the best fit for your next corporate event.

1. Private rooms

As opposed to using a sliding barrier to separate one room into two seemingly “private rooms,” most catering halls are completely private, with four distinct walls.

2. Audiovisual equipment

Instead of utilizing restaurants — which aren’t usually equipped with the necessary microphones, podiums, screens and projectors — for a corporate event, catering halls are better equipped for whatever your company has planned, especially speeches to presentations.

3. Customized menus

Don’t be confined to choosing entrées from a basic menu. Catering halls can customize your menu to suit whatever you have in mind.

4. Professional and individual maitre d’ services

Rather than waiting for a server who has 10 other tables to attend to, professional maitre d’s have the sole responsibility of making sure everything in your event runs to pure perfection.

5. No interruptions

With a private catering hall, you don’t have to worry about other customers in a crowded restaurant interrupting your conference. Instead, you can focus on what’s important to your event.

6. Busy, but not overwhelming

In contrast with restaurants, catering halls are free from the usual lunch hour rush, crammed spaces and long waits that accommodate most eateries.

7. You’re in control

When you prepare to execute your event in a catering hall, you’ll be aided by a corporate event planner to assist you in all of your planning needs, which includes floor plans, menu changes, registration tables and drop-off items, to name a few.

Next time you have a corporate event, consider your needs. We are pretty sure that a catering hall will meet all of them.
