Monaco Grand Prix Catering – 5 Things you Should Know

Posted by Kate Adams in Events and Parties, Tips & Tricks

27.04.18

The Monaco Grand Prix is one of the most important weekends in the Adams & Adams calendar. Working with clients in apartments and on yachts it draws heavily on our years of experience. If you are visiting the Monaco Grand Prix this year and need catering for your events then here are 5 things you need to know

1

Coming and Going – It’s a nightmare! Road closures, restrictions and more. Your catering team are going to need to know their way around and be prepared to work very early and very late.

2

Accreditation – Your caterer will have to have the necessary permits and accreditation to come in and out of Monaco. Without this you’ll be going hungry.

3

Experience Counts – Choosing a caterer who knows their way around the Monaco Grand Prix timing and calendar is essential. Look very carefully at who and where your caterer has worked before to avoid any nasty surprises.

4

Yacht Catering – Catering ‘on board‘ is a specialist skill and needs a caterer with the experience of working on boats and with the knowledge to work with the crew already on board. If you are booking a boat then choose a caterer with experience of yacht catering.

5

5 Top Tips for your Event at the Cannes Film Festival

It’s almost time to roll out the red carpet, dust off the tuxedo and finalise the details for your perfect Cannes Film Festival event. This is the time to see and to be seen and whether you are at the Variety party on the Croisette or planning an event at the Cannes Film Festival in a private Cannes Villa then attention to detail is everything. Adams & Adams have over 15 years of experience of organising events for clients at the Film Festival and here are our top 5 tips to ensure that your event is perfect in every detail.

Adams & Adams Cannes Film Festival

1

Location – Stick closely to La Croisette. Yours will probably be one of several events being held on the same evening and, if your guests have to try and grab a cab then you run the risk of a low turnout – walking distance is the name of the game. Choose one of the Cannes Croisette venues from our selection.

2

Date – Check your dates with the festival planning and try not to clash with some of the more exclusive and celebrated events that are the ‘must have’ invitation of the year. Avoiding the date of the annual Amfar charity event is always a good plan!

3

Invitations – It’s never too early to invite your guests, add that date to the diary as soon as possible.

4

Menu – More and more of our clients are choosing options from our superfoods and healthy menu options and, during a major event it’s always a welcome change for guests to be able to eat something delicious but that is a little lighter than the usual cocktail fayre.

5

Champagne – No self-respecting Film Festival event is without some great fizz and of course we are in France, home of arguably the best champagnes in the world. But our advice is to get that order in early, to avoid any issues with your first choice being available.
