We are celebrating a significant first milestone in international operations after delivering nearly 6000 drinks and coffees through 14 hospitality bars at two simultaneous events in the UK and South Africa, including SASOP, the 20th National Congress of the South African Society of Psychiatrists, 20-24 October 2021.

Alexia Swart, our MD,  said, “We were confident that there wouldn’t be any hitches to our operations in the UK or South Africa, but it was the first time we were coordinating events across two continents, so quite exciting all the same. The lack of a significant time difference between the UK and South Africa was obviously an advantage but the core of our success is the same: our great people and outstanding food and drink working for the client’s brand at every level.

"We have recently entered the UK market after building up a considerable reputation in South Africa for providing meticulously tailored food and drink stands, mobile bars and corporate hospitality solutions as a fully-branded and resourced turnkey service. Despite the pandemic, things have started really strongly here with 13 successful deployments since opening for business in the UK in 2021, and we can now call ourselves an international hospitality company. And now we're really looking forward to ESSA Conference in December and meeting more of our fellow eventprofs here in the UK.

Alexia concluded, "This simultaneous international deployment is a significant milestone for us, we’ve demonstrated to our new UK customers that not only are their brands safe in our hands, but we have the capacity and scale to bring the taste of excitement and delight to events here in the UK and  South Africa at the same moment."
