8 Ways Food Can Have a Positive Impact on Your Conference

By Jeffry Farman, past Global President, International Association of Conference Centres.

I guess it’s fair to say you will want to choose a conference venue that works with you to have your team able to contribute by being their best. Well, this summarises the approach we follow at CountryPlace when it comes to conference food.

Discover how a customised approach to dining made Vision Personal Training's event an enormous success.


Brain Food

We understand how to design a menu to keep delegates alert and stimulated all through the day. See our associated post on Wellness in the Conference Environment.

Tailored Menus

Our flexible approach to conference planning is to work with you to provide a menu that suits the specific needs of your group.


CountryPlace is dedicated to reducing food miles. Partnering with sustainable local suppliers is part of our approach to food. Let us tell you about them.

Dietary Requirements

All dietary requirements are catered for. We have a proven process to ensure the special needs of all delegates are met. Download our free Dietary Restrictions Guide.


Our kitchen team is encouraged to enter culinary awards. (And they have been very successful over the years.) This inspires enthusiasm for new levels of innovation and creativity to provide delicious meals.

Freedom & Sustainable Foods

Our venue has respect for animal welfare and free range where ever possible. Sustainable choices for fish and seafood are a priority with our chefs.



Our guests are encouraged to make the most of meeting breaks. A walk in the gardens increases brain oxygen. Feel happy and refreshed.


We all know staying hydrated with plenty of fluids is important to peak performance. Drinking water has been proven to increase concentration levels. CountryPlace provides fresh filtered water in all conference rooms and outside the rooms at breaks.
