Centerpieces for business conferences can serve a variety of purposes. Using flowers, snacks or product examples can make a meeting room more inviting or help to relate information. Depending on who will attend the meeting and how long it last, you can also use a centerpiece of snacks, such as fruit or nuts.
Fruit Basket or Snack Centerpiece
Use a fruit basket or snack centerpiece for longer meetings, in which you anticipate few breaks. Snack centerpieces include a variety of candies, fruits and trail mixes, which will are unobtrusive during a presentation. Serve these snack centerpieces with either water, coffee or tea, depending on the attendants' tastes.
Use understated flower centerpieces that are not taller than the participants' shoulder level. In place of flowers, use several potted, low-growing greenery. Live plants freshen the air, making the meeting room more comfortable for attendants.
Use informational materials as centerpieces for meetings with clients. This allows the clients to focus on the presentation rather than taking notes.
Using product displays as centerpieces provides your clients with a visual of the products discussed during the meeting. Options for product displays include cut-away parts, which show the interior workings of parts or samples. The client can view the product firsthand and interact with others at the table.
