AEV announces partnership with leading event caterer

The Association of Event Venues (AEV) recently revealed that Leith's has become its first strategic partner.  Part of Compass Group UK & Ireland, Leith's is a renowned specialist in events catering.

The partnership will focus on showcasing the Leith's brand to AEV's membership community of event venues. Over the next 12 months, AEV and Leith's will work together with member venues to evaluate the integral role catering offer can play in supporting the vision for each event and enhancing the experience for exhibitors and event participants.

Leith's is already an established fixture at a number of AEV member venues. For example, it is the current hospitality partner for both ExCeL London and Earls Court, and the hospitality and retail partner for Olympia. Compass Group also provides the total food and beverage operation at both the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre and Ricoh Arena.

“AEV is delighted to have agreed its first strategic partnership with Leith's, a respected industry brand that works so closely with venues in order to deliver a high standard of event catering,” said AEV director Tom Treverton.

“This is a fitting partnership, and I am very much looking forward to working with the Leith's team over the next year."

Meanwhile, Andy Hardy, business director at Compass Group conferences and exhibitions, said: “We are pleased to embark on this partnership with AEV, the flagship association for event venues. 

“The food and beverage offer is an integral part of an event, and we look forward to working with AEV and its members to ensure that, across the industry, the catering offer exceeds expectations of exhibitors and participants.”
