Say no to “bring your own boxed lunches”—While more and more companies don’t do this anymore for their corporate events, this is in fact, still the norm for many. Even if you’re only having what you consider a small event, the rule of thumb is, if it lasts for a full day, it’s best to reserve a catering Bali service.
People are going to be happier when they’re well-fed. When you think that the ones attending are just your employee, a.k.a. someone you hardly need to impress, this is already a wrong mindset to start off with. Regardless of whether you’re inviting clients, business partners or potential investors, investing on a solid catering service would pay off. People are going to remember the food, and you’ll have one less thing to worry about.
Have a headcount ready before you consult your Bali catering
Holding your corporate event in Bali is already a cause for celebration (unless of course, you’re already living on the island—a dream for many people!). Now before you set off and call the venue and the caterer, the information that you’re going to need to have is the headcount. Without a headcount, it’s near impossible to define a budget.
Set a realistic budget and communicate with your execs
Make sure that you clearly communicate what type of food catering they’re expecting. Even if they didn’t define what kind of menu catering they expect you to organize, it’s still wise to talk to your execs what kind of food they’re expecting. If anything, it would be able to give you some ideas for your menu. Their input is something that you can start off with. Depending on the culture of your company, don’t forget to update them on the Catering Denpasar choices and their offered menu that you’ve shortlisted and whether they’re good options. Consult with reputable Bali catering company that will allow you to set up your corporate events without much worry. Have a smooth-running event in Bali!

Have a set of schedule defined
How many speakers are going to be in your schedule? How many presentations that you’re going to have during your meetings or conferences, and in how many rooms? A large number of meeting and conference venues in Bali usually provides their own catering service. The Nusa Dua Convention Center, for example, have their own catering or an optional food service package so you won’t have to look for something outside. However, the same cannot be said for wedding venues. Bali has an abundance of romantic places that becomes couples’ favorites while they’re here. But sometimes they don’t provide wedding catering Bali readily available or inclusive in their venue service.
Catering Bali: Meal formats greatly affect schedules
If you think that you can get everyone to finish eating once you’ve given them an hour of a buffet lunch break, then you may find that you’re sorely mistaken. People are going to eat in different time, and they’re going to finish differently as well. The time spent will grow as the number of your guests grow. Avoid rushing your guests to finish eating and herding them like cattle by defining a realistic time frame according to:
- The agenda of your events
- Head count or the number of attendee
- How many rooms you’re going to use
The choice of buffet catering Bali is an undoubtedly a popular choice of various events in the Paradise Island. Whether you’re having an event in Seminyak, Denpasar, Nusa Dua, Sanur, or other places in Bali, make sure that you consult your caterers.
Buffet catering vs served meal
Meals in buffet format has the advantage of more affordable cost and an opportunity for your guests to choose from an ample variety of food. However, do consider having a served meal if your budget allows for it, as the meal format would allow for a more timely manner. This will be a more efficient choice for those that have an extremely packed schedule in their corporate events.
