Riverside is the largest wooden structure in Europe and has been purpose built to offer a restaurant, bar, and conference and event facilities in a unique location, all of which will be managed by the Amadeus team.
The venue boasts a stunning setting on the banks of the River Avon and has been built on stilts to counter the risk of flooding. Its low carbon credentials also tie in nicely with its catering award to a British supplier.
The contract was secured by Amadeus’ sales director Chris Reynolds, he said:
“From the moment the deal was agreed between Nic and I, we have worked in partnership, utilising Nic’s business acumen and Amadeus’ extensive experience in mobilising venues and event management to bring this exciting project to life. The whole team is really looking forward to the opening next month and to maximising the potential of this amazing new venue.”
Managing director of Amadeus Kevin Watson, said:
“Riverside is a unique venue in a magnificent location. We are really looking forward to welcoming local residents and businesses, and also to maximising Riverside’s commercial success.”
Owner Nic Allen, said:
“This venue has been on the drawing board for over 10 years and now it’s time to launch it to our customers. In my eyes the relationship with Amadeus is not just a normal contract but an exciting partnership, getting Amadeus involved early on in the project has been the key to getting this iconic building ready and prepared for the launch in March.”
This latest contract win follows Amadeus’ mobilisation of a new contract with Cadbury World and the announcement of a contract win with Camden Council marking a strong start to the year for the service provider.
