Looking for a Good Restaurant to Host Your Dinner Meeting for Life Sciences Professionals?

GCG Event Partners offers this list of restaurants In New York, Las Vegas, and Nashville that are experts in handling the special needs of medical dinner meetings.

Finding the right host for a dinner meeting for healthcare professionals can be daunting. Is their private dining space suitable? Can they accommodate the need of the organizer to comply with pharmaceutical regulations around feeding healthcare professionals?

GCG Event Partners, which offers an extensive network of qualified meeting and event professionals located across the U.S., has handled hundreds of medical dinner meetings in New York, Las Vegas, and Nashville since the company opened its doors in 2003. And after each one, GCG’s on-site event pros provide the company with ratings and commentary on how the restaurant performed. 

The company recently compared their notes with thousands of restaurant reviews to compile a list of the best restaurants in these cities for medical dinner meetings. 

“Meeting planners have a lot of responsibility when it comes to complying with pharmaceutical and medical dinner meeting guidelines, so it’s a relief when they find a venue that understands and goes above and beyond,” says GCG Event Partners President Lori Gershaw. “We are proud to share our list of the best restaurants to hold dinner meetings in New York City, Las Vegas, and Nashville, and I congratulate those who made the list.”

Among the attributes that factor into a restaurant making the list are:

  • Suitable, closed-off private dining room space with flexible room setup options
  • Registration accommodations set outside of meeting room or well-situated inside the room
