Renowned for its wedding and corporate catering, Ashford-based Chives Caterers is set to join more than 100 local venue and event suppliers at the very first Venue & Events Expo at the Kent Event Centre, Detling, this May 31. The event, which aims to bring together leading suppliers & event planners from across the South East, will enable Chives Caterers to showcase its creative and beautifully crafted food to attendees via an exclusive workshop at 11am and 1pm.


The workshop will provide the opportunity for Chives Caterers’ expert chefs to demonstrate the intricate and methodical approach the company takes to crafting the finest canapés for corporate events with the aim to highlight the importance of matching the quality of the canapés to the company/product/event being planned.


Having been operating for over twenty years, the business excels at helping couples put together the very best menus for their special day, as well as supporting corporate clients in compiling dining options that will fulfil - and exceed - the expectations of delegates.


Debra Green, at Chives Caterers, spoke about the company’s excitement at being able to attend the Venue & Events Expo: “This show represents one of the first of its kind anywhere in the South East, so for us to have the opportunity to join such a great array of venues and suppliers local to Kent is a wonderful means of demonstrating the quality of local service and produce available.


“In addition, being able to host a workshop that showcases how we can help corporate clients is great not only for us, but also attendees who can see exactly what will be available for their budgets. We understand the effect great catering has on the success of an event, so we hope that those attendees able to drop by will be able to see how our passion for fine dining will help make their event that bit more special.”


The Venues & Events Expo will be held at the Kent Event Centre, Detling, on Thursday, May 31. Running from 9am until 5pm, the event sees masterclasses and talks by industry experts from across Kent and is free to attend. Discover more at www.venueseventsexpo.co.uk.
