Source locally, learn from the french
When it comes to increasing the sustainability of our conference and meeting venues what can we learn from our continental cousins in particular the French. One thing comes thing over louder and clearer than anything, sourcing local produce. When was the last time you saw any reference to locality on a Hilton or Marriott menu. One group who David Like are trying to do something an out this are Cavendish conference venues, a small group of 5 London conference centre’s. (Mayfair Conference Centre, Cavendish Conference Centre, America Square Conference Centre and the Hallam Conference Centre) They have menus showing the exact source of all produce (down to the herd) PDFs on their website showing the postcode of all suppliers segmented by the purchase value etc. Surely this is truly learning the lessons of our continental neighbors rather than the British gimmicks of handmade Indian delegate bags etc.
At Cavendish Venues we are committed to exceeding your expectations, and with over 93% repeat business we know we're doing something right!
