Summer of success for Events by Amadeus

Events by Amadeus, the arm of national catering company, Amadeus, responsible for the delivery of standalone event catering, has hailed a summer of success having delivered £3 million of sporting contracts and securing two prestigious sporting catering contracts in Scotland.

The first contract award was a £2 million, multi-year agreement with DP World Tour, to deliver all hospitality and tournament catering requirements at the Genesis Scottish Open from 2023 to 2026.

Taking a bespoke approach to event catering across the four-day event and looking after a cross section of the tournament within several different structures, Events By Amadeus brings more than 45 years of expertise and exciting innovations to the open.

This year’s collaboration saw Events by Amadeus working closely with renowned chefs Tom Kitchin and Mun Kim to deliver breakfast, a Scottish x Korean fusion menu, afternoon tea, bowl food and drinks receptions at Scotland’s most prestigious golfing event of the year. At the event, the team delivered over 2,400 covers for VIP hospitality guests, caddies and media, as well as an array of peripheral catering.

The second contract awarded was for a one-off World Cycling event in Glasgow and saw Events by Amadeus deliver a selection of high-quality catering solutions in summer 2023 for various client groups, including the championship family and hospitality clients.

The two Scottish contracts demonstrate the team’s continued commitment to delivering exceptional food services at high-profile sports events across the UK. Most recently, the team celebrated success at a Women’s Open tournament, where they catered for hospitality guests, the sponsor pavilion, media dining and concert headliners catering. The team marked their 25-year relationship with the client in 2023.

Across the summer, the team travelled over 3000 miles and catered to over 75 events throughout June, July and August, including five high-profile sporting events. Over the five sporting tournaments, Events by Amadeus served 11,250 players, athletes and their entourages, 18,000 tournament staff and volunteers, and 11,500 hospitality covers.

Sam Bates, Event Director at Events by Amadeus said: “Taking a bespoke approach to event catering in the sports world, come rain or shine, is the team’s forte. Catering at outdoor and sporting events provides a unique set of challenges, however, it’s a challenge Events by Amadeus always welcomes.

“We’re so proud – to not only mark longstanding relationships of over 25 years – but to also grow the business across the UK’s sports sector.”

When it comes to drainage and plumbing, however, the expense of repairing blockages or dealing with flooding could vastly exceed the cost of preventative maintenance.

Given your role as an FM Professional, we would love to hear your views, challenges & experiences, and opinions on drainage & plumbing within the workplace.
