Is Now the Time to Add a Dining Lounge to Your Convention Center?
The pandemic has taken its toll on large events. However, thanks to the vaccine and the loosening of restrictions, many conventions are happening again this year. We hope your convention center is reaping the benefits. Should you consider adding a dining lounge to your center and offering prepared foods? The answer is yes, probably more so than ever. Here are some of the reasons.
- Attract larger and longer conventions – When attendees can enjoy comfortable meals at the event, they can stay longer and get their money’s worth from being present. Plus, if the convention lasts several days, it’s tough to prep a few days of lunches in a hotel room.
- Provide an easy food solution – Depending on the state you are located in, it may be difficult for attendees to leave an event to get food and then return. Pandemic restrictions may actually make it easier for people to eat at the event.
- Stand out from other event centers – If the ongoing pandemic leads to fewer events than usual, you need to acquire as many as you can. A food lounge provides you with a competitive advantage and allows you to charge a premium for the use of your facility.
