20140429-6451Within the framework of an amazing time travel scenario, Corinthia Hotel Budapest unveiled its new event service available for external venues: Royal Catering.

The “Because it’s personal” philosophy of Royal Catering is based on person-to-person contact and places the emphasis on customized services. Clients are given huge assistance in the quotation phase with a one-off solution: the innovative online tool called the Royal Catering configurator; practically all important data can be input for the event at the selected venue.

The ‘time travel’ to the presentation was arranged by a bus dating from the last century departing from Corinthia Hotel Budapest; it took travellers to the Villa Ybl, one of the outside locations of Royal Catering. Here, participants could learn about the mission of the new brand, its unique event organization philosophy and the range of tools and equipment at its disposal to guarantee the perfect event.

To ensure the arrangement of stress-free events, Royal Catering supplies everything essential such as furniture, delivery, waiters/waitresses, food, drink, entertainment and audio-visual equipment.

In addition, as a help for the organizer, a car with chauffeur and personal event assistant is made available to tour the venue and on the day itself. In order that the client is able to take part in the long-awaited event in a calm state, Royal Catering’s special ‘Relaxation package’ makes sure that preparations are smooth and trouble-free, and of course that the exertions of the programme can be eased afterwards.
