500 guests in 24 hours – Cutty Sark breaks its fine dining record

Posted on: November 4th, 2013 by chandco

This week the Cutty Sark will host back-to-back fine dining events as part of the World Travel Market.

Set to be two of the most prestigious and exclusive evenings of the week, it will be the first time that any caterer has hosted consecutive dinners of this scale aboard the landmark ship.

Today Harbour & Jones Events will cater for 270 at the UKinbound Gala Dinner, which will be attended by key figures in the travel and tourism industry.

Taking place tomorrow is the prestigious WTM Ministerial Dinner for 230 guests, which is organised by Reed Exhibition and in association with UNWTO World Travel Organisation and sponsored by the Travel Channel, who will also be providing guest speakers. The exclusive evening, now in its fifth year, will host Tourism Ministers, Senior Aides, private sector industry executives from around the world, and leading global travel trade publications.

Choosing only to work with iconic London venues, World Travel Market has previously hosted events at St Paul’s Cathedral, also a part of the Harbour & Jones Events venue collection. Instantly recognisable, Cutty Sark is one of the world’s most famous ships and the fastest and greatest of her time. She stands as a glorious monument to the age of sail and to all those who lost their lives in the merchant service. Situated on the shore of the mighty River Thames the ship provides commanding views over Canary Wharf and the City of London, making it an ideal historic venue.

Taking place at Excel London from 4-7 November, World Travel Market attracts 50,000 senior executives from the travel and tourism industry who will sign deals worth more than £2 billion.

Furthermore, WTM is worth more than £160m to the London economy through the discretionary spent of its delegates.
