Introduction to The Hire Awards of Excellence

Dec 17, 2021

At Plato, we love a great celebration and are lucky enough to play a part in many fantastic events. There is, however, one celebration that we strive to be a part of each year, and that’s the Hire Awards of Excellence.

Today, we’re going to be talking about our experience as a Hire Awards of Excellence repeat finalist, the importance of being SafeHire© certified, and why you should be looking for the award certification next time you need event hire equipment.

SafeHire Event Equipment Hire Company of the Year

May 21, 2021

We are excited to announce that Plato Catering Hire is the 2021 WINNER of SafeHire Event Equipment Hire Company of the Year!

It’s been a very difficult year for a lot of us. Our industry has been closed down and events have been the last thing on anyone’s mind.

That’s why I’m extremely proud of the team and the feat that we’ve managed to achieve after spending the majority of the year in lockdown.

Alfresco Events

Post Lockdown Dining: The Surge of Alfresco?

Mar 22, 2021

So, folks, it looks like we’ll be doing a lot more dining outside this year and beyond.

How wonderful!

In fact, it’s hard to think of a better way to eat with friends, family, and business colleagues. Once the warmer months arrive, everyone always scrambles for any available outdoor space, therefore why shouldn’t we make alfresco dining more of a habit?

Getting Back to Business Securely and Covid-19 Safe

Jul 24, 2020

The events industry is licking its wounds right now but there’s an air of excitement as we finally spot the green shoots of our industry, thanks to the relaxation of lockdown and new guidance being introduced.

The summer of 2020 will certainly go down as one of the quietest summers in our 20+ year history, but summer 2021 is looking like a cracker so there’s some real hope and excitement building here and in the events world.

Outdoor Hospitality isn’t Just Beer Gardens, Boris: A Plea to the UK Government

Jun 23, 2020

At Plato we’ve remained positive throughout lockdown. What else can you do when your industry is decimated by a global pandemic? Aside from all the seriousness of the virus and the global crash, there have been many positives (like cleaner air, more family time and reflection) and we, like many in the events industry, have held on to that.

Plato Hire Nominated for Hire Awards of Excellence 2020 Award

Mar 12, 2020

For years, the hire industry was crying out for quality standards. As with many industries and sectors, the world of hire needed a benchmark and a symbol for those within it to show that they care about the quality and outcome of their service.

That’s why the creation of the Hire Association Europe (HAE), and the Event Hire Association (EHA) has been so great for the industry. The Hire Awards of Excellence celebrate the highest quality in the hire world and this helps to push the standards up, giving greater services and products to all.
