AEV Catering Working Group – why should you become a member?

Do you work within the catering / hospitality departments at your venue?

Are you interested in meeting with peers carrying out similar roles across various different venues?

Do you want to share knowledge and experiences?

If you have answered yes to the above questions, you should consider joining the AEV Catering Working Group who meet twice a year to discuss the ever changing needs and provision of catering and other related topics, together with the eGuide and legal changes.
