20/09/2017 - 12:12
The events team at Amadeus is celebrating after a summer that saw it cater at around 40 events over June, July and August, including five sports tournaments.

In total the team travelled over 2,693 miles in the three months and served 290 hospitality covers at a range of events, which included weddings, banquets and corporate dinners.

Highlights for the company included providing food and drink to players, marshalls, volunteers and the media at three Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) tournaments in Nottingham, Birmingham and Eastbourne.

Sam Bates, general manager for Amadeus’ events team, said: “Amadeus does not believe in a “one size fits all” mentality, so whether we’re catering for the public at a live event or for a fine dining banquet, we look to provide a tailored, quality solution for each and every client.

“Although we operate all year round, the summer months are when the team is at its busiest.”

In July, Amadeus catered for over 50,000 visitors at the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open at Dundonald Links in Scotland, working with local suppliers for its menu offering.

In August it provided the catering at the IMG Ricoh Women’s Open Golf for the twelfth consecutive year, having worked with the tournament organisers since 2005, and previous sponsors of the tournament from 1997.

Over the five sporting tournaments, Amadeus says that it served 11,240 players and their entourages, 12,601 marshalls and volunteers, 4,105 ball boys and girls and 3,375 members of the media.

Bates added: “We share a long history with the Lawn Tennis Association, European Tour and Ricoh Women’s British Open having worked with them for many years and understand the audience profiles for each event inside out.

“To keep things interesting we always look to push the boundaries of creativity, providing bespoke menus and working with local suppliers to keep our offer authentic.”
