Meeting Menus Worth Drooling Over

Mandy Volpe - Monday, July 20, 2015

This past week the Black Canyon Conference Center welcomed the Arizona Department of Health Services for a meeting. Chef Reyes and his kitchen staff prepared quite the spread for their meeting. Everything from Pearl Cous Cous with vegetables to Chicken Marsala could be found on the menu. This same quality of food and service is available Monday through Friday for your next meeting at the Black Canyon Conference Center. Give them a call to explore the options for your next team meeting or corporate gathering. 




Party in the Garden

Mandy Volpe - Friday, June 19, 2015

Pickwick Gardens Conference Center is an excellent outdoor venue for weddings and meetings in California. They also host birthday parties and we think this 1st birthday celebration is simply charming. We love how they used the backdrop of the garden as the theme for their celebration. What outdoor parties are you currently planning?

Our Sodexo Conferencing property Black Canyon Conference Center has some exciting news. They just recently got new furniture for their conference and dining rooms.

Be Mindful of Hungry Meeting Attendees

Mandy Volpe - Wednesday, April 29, 2015

A concern of many meeting attendees is whether or not there will be a healthy selection from the catering menu or if it will be the typical meeting fare of chicken and one vegetable option. Event planners can rest easy when planning a meeting with a Sodexo Conferencing property because the dining options on-site are less than normal! Sodexo Conferencing properties offer the Mindful eating program which features healthy alternatives to traditional catered meals. Some of the menu items include vegetarian and gluten free options such as couscous and grilled vegetables along with salmon and soups. This leaves meeting attendees happy and well fed. Find a Conference Center in your area to begin planning a meeting that will leave your attendees praising both the event agenda as well as the menu.
