Gourmet Food Parlour – Slane

Gourmet Food Parlour – Collaborative Event for Open Air Concert - Slane

Gourmet Food Parlour

The Brief

Fusion Events enjoys strong collaborations with trade partners where each organisation’s core competencies complement each other. Our hospitality partners, Gourmet Food Parlour, approached us to support them in an event that they were catering. The event was part of the annual Slane open-air concert where by a premium area was to be created for VIP guests attending the Metallica concert. The ultimate client wanted to create a festival style laid back area but still ensure that the offering was first-rate.

The Approach

As an open-air event, a contingency was initially established for all weather eventualities and a twin stretch marquee was erected to provide both sun and rain cover. To reinforce the festival atmosphere, carnival style market stalls were installed for food service locations, providing ease of food service and guest access. A full event fit out included lighting and outdoor furniture. Barrel pod tables were functional and also complemented the theme. Crowd management was a key consideration so we installed and monitored barriers for safe and efficient flow of traffic.
