IT symposium & expo

Client/ international tech research firm Dates/ autumn 2018 & 2019 Location/ Barcelona

An outstanding event for IT leaders on a global scale, welcoming close to 10k attendees.

During both 2018 & 2019 editions, I have been the event's food & beverage project manager, on behalf of the venue. This marked a cornerstone in my career.
I enjoyed working on this challenging project, with a complex schedule such as having 3 simultaneous +1k people lunch services each day.
Other services include cocktails, parties, permanent cafés and breaks, vip lounge crafted concepts and crew catering, as well as expo deliveries and show cooking.

To make spaces multifunctional throughout the programme, we had to think out of the box and plan & operate back to back set-up changes. We also had to deal with difficult weather conditions on -site.

Almost 400 crew members composed our global catering team for this event.
Menu design & concept proposals were key parts of the process, starting 10 months before the event goes live.
Menu tastings were events themselves, taking place over 2 sessions and 4 days in total, showcasing close to 300 dishes for the final menu selection.
