Prague Congress Centre has been cooperating with Zátiší Catering for twelve years. In that time congresses and their concepts for catering have changed a lot. Guests have higher expectations: They look for healthy food and a sustainable approach.

For the Prague Congress Centre (PCC) the quality of food & beverages such as fresh dishes and new catering ideas are a must. Popular is a variation of small skewers - sometimes prepared by the chef directly in front of the guests on the so-called life-cooking stage. Another trend is brain food. A light, nutritionally balanced and healthy meal ensures that in the second half of the day after the lunch break, speakers and attendees will be as attentive as in the morning. Congress menus served in Prague Congress Centre are composed of seasonal and predominantly local food to minimize the ecological footprint of food imports. When disposable dishes are used, they are biodegradable. The remaining waste is consistently sorted. Food surpluses are supplied to charity organizations with attention to highest hygiene standards. "Zátiší Catering has been on the market for almost 20 years, refreshments are provided at various events at home as well as abroad, and it is clear that we meet world standards,” Managing Director of the Zátiší Catering group David Tomašovych says. He adds: “Our vision by 2020 is to be among the top five European catering companies. At the international ICCA congress 2017, we want to show, that we are just a step away from our goal. It is a very prestigious event where we will introduce modern trends that will determine the form of catering in the next five years ". The Prague Congress Centre is the largest congress centre in the Czech Republic with a total capacity for up to 9,300 people and 13,000sqm of exhibition space. (wün)
