Last time, we have talked about FOOD and BEVERAGE in a conference. Further down, many are wondering about the refreshment during break time. Yes, it plays a critical role especially it is "Refreshment". Here are some ideas for your meeting break.
In morning session, Hot Coffee and Tea are the best sellers! Hot caffeine drink can wake up participants and give a soft social medium for them before meeting begins.
Water must be offered without saying because dehydration can lead to fatigue. However, in Western society, iced water is highly recommended. On the other hand, in some Asian countries, warm water is preferred.
Juice is also welcome, especially in afternoon session. But remember to keep fresh and cold. No one wants it to go bad when it is usually ready in advance and sits quite long during break. So, to prepare sufficient ice is the key!
No alcohol drinks for sure, unless you aim to make fun with the group.
Similar to Food arrangement, as healthy and environmental issue being high concern nowadays, the dietary preference has to take into consideration. The right snacks can make participants recharged, energized and focused during long-day meetings. Wide variety is also important; to give a big feast to eyes in colors and kinds will also help. At the same time, do not feed them up whether there is a big dinner or not, because people easily get logy from eating too much.
Fruit is a perfect choice. They are rich in vitamins, minerals and fiber that would keep people feel full longer. Plus, it is safe regardless of allergy or dietary constraints. But in the same manner with juice, keep it fresh and cold.
Nuts is another healthy choice but make a clear sign for allergy sake.
Sandwiches in finger-food size, cracker with cheese, veggie bar, etc. are all good options to enrich your refreshment bar.
Speaking to break time, drinks and snacks come to mind immediately. But back to the basic, why should we have break during meetings? The initial purpose is to REFRESH participants from still position in serious topics. Therefore, it can be more than refreshments.
For many companies, tight schedule to fill in everything is always an issue even though they know the significance of team building / motivation / team work. No time and no budget for it! In fact, you can benefit from break time to have refreshment and team activity simultaneously.
