UK-based event caterer Smart Hospitality has won an International Special Events Society (ISES) Esprit Award for Best Catered Event.
The award was given at the ISES Live Nassau 2-13 event held at the Atlantis Resort, Nassau in the Bahamas on Saturday night.
The event attracted 400 guests from ISES’ international chapters and celebrated creativity and excellence in event production and event services.
Smart Hospitality submitted its delivery of corporate hospitality at the Olympic Hospitality Centre (OHC) during London 2012 to win the international award. The OHC offered corporate hospitality to the IOC and major sponsors including Coca Cola, Visa, British Airways, BT, Lloyds, BMW and BP. Guests included VIPs, visiting heads of state, international employees, athletes and competition prize winners.
Hospitality was delivered throughout the 17-day event with a 24-hour operation, catering over 62,000 covers in 13 suites, each with an ambience and menu selection tailored to the client’s needs, timings and entertaining requirements.
“An international Esprit award is one of the only awards that reflects the best in the creative events industry on a global scale,” says Member of the International Board of ISES Governors, Richard Foulkes. “It is always good to see a British Company winning an award especially in such a competitive environment and I am happy for the team at Smart Hospitality.”
Greg Lawson, CEO of Smart Group, said: “We are delighted to have received this recognition from such a respected institution as ISES and I’d like to thank ISES EMEA Operations Manager Toni Griggs (pictured) for collecting the award at the dinner on our behalf.”
