SMART HOSPITALITY LANDS 16 CONTRACTS AT PARIS AIR SHOW
Thu 11 Jun 2015
Smart are touching down in the French capital on 15th - 21st June 2015 for the 51st Paris Air Show and will deliver hospitality across 16 separate operations, from bespoke a la carte chalets to individual exhibition stand receptions, delivering over 10,000 covers.
The market-leading catering and events company anticipates 10,000 covers across all five days of the world’s largest show dedicated to the aerospace industry. The occasion will see Smart Group hosting royalty, prime ministers, top government and military officials and senior figures from the world’s most important aviation companies and defence contractors.
Emphasising the prestige of the occasion, Smart Group is committing an unprecedented amount of resources for the event, sending over 150 members of staff, headed up by executive head chef David Ridgway and group COO Paul Vesper to deliver an exceptional experience for show attendees.
Commenting on Smart’s involvement, Vesper says: “The Paris Air Show represents an exciting new chapter in the Smart Group story, a direct result of our recent purchase and incorporation of Moving Venue. The resulting, increased capacity that this acquisition offered has allowed us to provide a more robust service, putting us in pole-position to deliver more large-scale events both in the UK and across the continent.”
“The Paris Air Show gives us an opportunity to showcase our diverse offering and the scope of our ambition as a company, demonstrating that we can provide an equally excellent service whether entertaining 10 or 10,000 people. Throughout this project we have not lost sight of our grounding principles, an all too present danger when expanding operations. We are bringing the very same staff that have cemented our reputation for unrivalled service in the UK and have ensured that all ingredients used across out menus have been sourced from the excellent producers that abound in the Paris area.”
