The MIPIM UK Summit brings together senior real estate professionals from all over the world and investors from all asset classes to build partnerships, gain industry insight and discover outstanding projects.

Payne & Gunter has plenty of experience in catering for events for both business and pleasure.

Conference catering requires careful and considered planning to ensure all scenarios have appropriate catering to hydrate and energise delegates over the duration of the conference.

Nutritious food needs to be available to satisfy different palates and appeal to various preferences. We were delighted to cater for such a prestigious and globally appealing summit, the MIPIM, but as London’s original caterers we felt perfectly prepped to serve up great culinary options to attendees.

Conference and exhibition catering

Old Billingsgate was the perfect venue in the heart of the city of London and the Grand Hall’s magnificent proportions and triple-height ceiling and feature mezzanine made for inspiring surroundings for the MIPIM and its attendees.

Relaxing and recharging refreshments

The networking lounge offered over 800 guests informal catering and an opportunity to relax and recharge over the 2 days of the conference with coffee, tea and sandwiches, whilst having informal meetings with other delegates.

Social sit-down lunches

A relaxed and informal networking lunch was held for delegates, by invitation only. They were catered for with a seated buffet serving sliced chicken breast with sundried tomato and basil pesto with crushed potatoes and courgettes and chickpea and coriander cakes with cauliflower rice, pomegranate and sweet chill.

Delicious dessert options of lemon posset with shortbread and coconut pannacotta with fruit compote. A light and fresh lunch that catered for different dietary requirements, without weighing down the delegates with an afternoon of content and networking to take in.

Food stations for networking

Food stations are great for networking events because they offer a variety of meals and the opportunity to mingle whilst networking with industry peers. Our food stations at the MIPIM Summit UK included pulled pork in sourdough buns with apple sauce, Dorset crab with avocado and watermelon, autumn vegetable tagine with almonds and apricots, Yorkshire pudding with roast beef and horseradish, and woodland mushroom arancini.

Exclusive dinners for delegates

A decadent dinner for 220 VIPs was served by Payne & Gunter comprising of a 3-course dinner with a champagne reception with canapes and a delicious bespoke menu with carefully selected wine and after-dinner coffees and chocolates.

It’s a wrap, party

From morning to night we kept the conference delegates nourished and alert so that they could take in the quality content and network to their best ability at this 2-day top-quality conference. From the first coffee on the first morning to the last bite at the end of the last day Payne & Gunter’s team catered around the clock to make the conference an event to remember and return to.
