The coronavirus is re-writing the “contract” between the dining room and the customers at the tables, and, in response, Waterloo Region food operations large and small have focused on re-building that confidence.
Putting together the perfect meeting or event isn’t easy. The devil is in the detail – not only making sure you have the right space, but making sure you can provide the ‘wow’ factor for everyone involved. It can be difficult to stay on top of what’s new and unique in any given area. And that’s especially true here in Waterloo Region, where things evolve as fast as the technology companies, financial institutions and manufacturing sectors that call it home.
The good news is there is help you can access to make the planning process easier. Team Waterloo Region – Director of Sales, Jennifer Eddings and Sales Manager Emily Deckert – can provide a number of different services, designed to assist planners and event organizers throughout the implementation process. Here are just some of the ways our team can help you put together the perfect meeting or event in Waterloo Region:
