Fortnum & Mason and the Austrian DO & CO are proud to announce the creation of a new joint venture company, ‘Fortnum & Mason Events Ltd’.
The new company combines the quintessentially British elegance, quality and service of Fortnum & Mason with the extensive event experience of DO & CO, allowing Fortnum & Mason to be recreated outside Piccadilly for the first time in 300 years.
The two companies come from very diverse backgrounds but both are customer and client focused, and together offer a new dimension to the event market in the UK.
The new company will bring a taste of Piccadilly combined with worldwide experience to events across the UK, including high profile national events to private parties. Clients can benefit from Fortnum & Mason’s fantastic food, menus inspired by Fortnum’s executive chef, the Michelin starred Shaun Hill, or may showcase the specialist live cooking of DO & CO.
The joint venture will also be able to offer a turnkey operation including pre-event marketing and sales, infrastructure, interior design and furnishing. The expertise of both parties means any client request can be catered for, always with the care and attention to detail for which both businesses are renowned.
Whether a client wishes: afternoon tea for 600 corporate guests at Cowes complete with silver teapots, scones, fresh cream and Fortnum’s Strawberry preserve, or, to host a contemporary cocktail party for 200 at Fashion Week with avant garde foam canapés and mixologists, all will be executed with the usual flourish, perfect planning and operational guarantee for which Fortnum’s and DO & CO are known.
Beverley Aspinall, Managing Director of Fortnum & Mason: “We are delighted to partner with DO & CO in this exciting joint venture. Now we can offer the care and attention to detail Fortnum & Mason is famous for to customers and guests outside of the Piccadilly store.”
Attila Dogudan, Chairman and CEO of DO & CO PLC: “We at DO & CO are very excited by this new partnership and certainly honoured to join forces with such a famous and respected British establishment as Fortnum & Mason. We also are looking forward to bringing our particular expertise into the British event market, working with a partner that shares our values, high standards and attention to detail in all areas.”
