The hospitality company behind catering at the Open Championships threw a party of its own on 27 March to launch a new premium service, Prestige Venues & Events (PV&E).
Sodexo Prestige hosted the event at Edinburgh’s historic Assembly Rooms.
The company has seen healthy growth in the conference and events market in Scotland in recent times and the launch of Prestige Venue & Events comes after extensive research and consultation with venues, booking agents and customers.
The centrepiece of PV&E is an interactive website with built-in tools for venue finding. The service also includes a central team available online or by phone from an enquiry hub to answer queries and provide real-time advice.
The new service is based at South Queensferry near Edinburgh and during a trial in 2013 it generated an additional £1m in revenue for Scottish venues.
Prestige Venues & Events in Scotland include Hampden Park, Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh and The Assembly Rooms.
The launch night included gourmet experiences and blind tasting sessions from Sodexo Prestige’s chefs.
