Silicon Valley Open Doors (SVOD) Conference

Posted on

Last week, we catered an event for some of the most up-and-coming household names in the tech industry. With over 550 attendees, Silicon Valley was steeped in great technological minds and world-changing inventions – and we had the pleasure of catering for them!

Our team was ready to serve buffet-style meals, scrumptious snacks and delectable desserts over the two day affair. On the light lunch menu, the food included; cocktail sandwiches, bruschetta, felafel bar and dessert – the perfect mix of deliciousness to keep the conference delegates attentive and engaged! As anyone who has attended a conference knows, good food is paramount to making the event a memorable experience.

Among the esteemed guest list at SVOD was Michael McFaul, a Stanford Professor and US Ambassador to Russia, who presented awards to the winners of the Startup Pitch Competition. Entrants from across the globe were awarded thousands of dollars to further their ideas and career aspirations. McFaul changed his travel plans to attend the conference and gave a surprise address, which added to the already evident ‘buzz’ of excitement in the crowd.

Being in the same room as the very people who are shaping our technological world, was an inspiring experience. The 2013 SVOD Conference was absolutely overflowing with the celebration of new ideas and humble beginnings. What a privilege to be a small part of the growing technological world of Silicon Valley!
