We’re an event hire company that's been hiring catering equipment throughout Birmingham, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, Worcestershire, Gloucestershire, The Cotswolds, and the West Midlands for over 20 years so, we’ve got a pretty good idea what you need which is why we've created our event planning checklist.
With over two decades of experience supporting some of the best party planners in the UK with thousands of parties, we've created a dinner party checklist to help you plan a stress-free party that's remembered for all the right reasons!
Here at Plato we think events are incredibly exciting, and since 1999 we’ve enjoyed playing a vital role in thousands of them. Much of our work as a catering hire company happens before the event starts, so we get to see some amazing venue transformations.
Getting everything just right at an event can be a challenge and a lot of that comes down to logistics. When you’re planning on serving hundreds of people and something doesn’t arrive, doesn’t work, or there simply isn’t enough of something – that’s when the trouble starts!
As you know, not all venues are the same and some simply won’t be able to house all the guests in a sit down meal. Bowl food is a great solution, but if your client is struggling to see the concept of bowl food and the benefit to an event struggling for space…
Events are great fun and if you’ve ever been along to a well-run event you’ll have experienced what it’s like to be in a film. Smoothly-run events feel like a dream come true. You’re immersed in the event, the theme, the music, the food and wine, and the setting, and occasion.
It’s the day before the event. You’ve got everything prepared, and you’re ready to enjoy it. You’ve got an itinerary of the itinerary, a to-do list for the to-do list lists and you’ve organised the organisers.
Even the weather is looking positive and not one person has cancelled. It’s a dream event come true. What could possibly go wrong?
It’s long been our aim to give the best possible service we can. Although many clients are on board with using the best or even the second or third best, in this internet-driven world it’s often a struggle for businesses to compete when it appears to all come down to price.
