Bringing more to the table

We understand that food can make or break your event. After all, it’s often the thing delegates look forward to most. Especially if they’re only visiting for the day. Fortunately for us, our award-winning catering team know all about the importance of serving food that doesn’t simply satisfy appetites and boost energy levels, but smashes expectations.

With a kitchen boasting over 650 industry awards, it’s fair to say our catering team understand what’s required to deliver daring menus that cater for every dietary requirement and budget imaginable. More than that, they do so in a way that ensures consideration and innovation is evident on every plate. Whether that’s sustainably sourcing local produce, scrutinising nutritional values or adding a little live theatre to table service.

Feast Your Eyes On This…

We have over 500 dishes to choose from when ordering your catering for your event. From arrival snacks to a lavish banqueting dinner there is more than enough to make your mouth water.

Taking Nutrition Seriously

We are the first events venue to work with RaisingNutrition, a not-for-profit organisation focused on raising nutrition standards, to ensure our catering supports delegate’s health, wellbeing, and productivity, both during the conference attended and beyond.


On-Stand Hospitality

Our in-house catering team at the ICC can provide a range of fresh food and drinks, either delivered to your stand or prepared right in front of you by our specialist chefs. We provide a wide range of options to cater for any stand at any kind of event, ranging from nibbles to entice visitors, to a working lunch for your team, to handmade cocktails or food cooked at your stand.

Catering excellence

High standards are the norm at the ICC, with catering excellence being applied to all aspects of a meal, from the individual ingredients and the cooking methods, to the presentation of the food and even the plates that the food is served on. The combination of all of these things makes for some outstanding dishes served up at our events.

Going above and beyond

We believe that it’s better to innovate, not imitate. The smallest of food items can become a big talking point when they are given a dash of innovation. Even the standard canape is anything but standard at the ICC.

Live theatre

Although the kitchen is their home, our team of Chefs love to get out of the kitchen every now and then and join the event. Adding a little theatre to an event, regardless of the time of day is a great experience for delegates, and lets them be served food fresh and direct from the chefs themselves.

Quality ingredients

It’s of the utmost importance that we believe in the food that we serve to our guests. That’s why our Chefs work hard to source the finest ingredients from the best suppliers in the country, using local producers wherever possible.
