Purpose: Booker Group Ltd is the UK’s largest wholesaler. The team at Booker was keen to create an event that inspired its top catering customers by showcasing a selection of brands and products available and the versatility of its produce.
Silverstone was chosen as the launch venue for the annual Booker Catering Trade Show in 2017 and the company decided to return in 2018 because of the success of its inaugural event. The venue’s accessibility, central location proximity to Booker’s Headquarters in Northamptonshire and Silverstone’s expert event team support, impressive pace available and room versatility made it the perfect choice. In addition, attendees expressed their excitement at experiencing live events taking place on the iconic circuit during the trade show.

“We had a fabulous day at Silverstone, made especially by your warm welcome and kind attention paid to every aspect to our visit. Our meeting was successful and ran smoothly. The tour was extremely interesting and my colleagues very much enjoyed the passenger rides. We all agreed that the food was fabulous, plentiful (possibly too plentiful) and exactly what was required on a cold day!”

“We needed a venue that would excite delegates. The Car Dealer Expo was to be the biggest in the industry and we didn’t want somewhere run-of-the-mill. Silverstone seemed like the obvious choice, and after our visit it was clear it would lend itself perfectly to what we had planned. The team on the day couldn’t have been more helpful in ensuring that our Expo went off without a hitch. We’re back at Silverstone next year and going even bigger.”

“We wanted to launch a fleet of fork-lift trucks and showcase them through live demonstrations to over 300 customers in a unique, quirky and memorable location. The Pit Garages were a fantastic blank canvas for us to create an inspired event. Silverstone is a great central location, there’s plenty of parking and accessibility, and the staff were very helpful and made our event a huge success.”

“The Wing was an ideal venue to introduce our new high-performance security cameras, and many of our guests have told us that they were impressed with the standard of the hospitality provided, including the excellent breakfast rolls – it’s the little things that can quite often make a big difference. The professionalism, friendliness and attitude of the team will be a major factor in our decision to book your superb facilities for future launch events.”

“The Silverstone Wing is perfect. Spacious, state-of-the-art facilities and a great setting. Our annual Management Apprentice Induction and Graduation is one of the most important events of our year, and the Silverstone team gave us great support throughout, and served up top quality food and refreshments. I’d highly recommend the venue and the team. The Home of British Motor Racing certainly lived up to its reputation.”

“Our director had chosen the venue for the ‘wow factor’ and Silverstone certainly delivered. It was great to look out the windows and be so close to the iconic Grand Prix Circuit. The facilities delivered everything that we required,
We also very much appreciated being shown the podium and race room at the end of the event. Our director and guest really enjoyed this insight into ‘behind the scenes’ Silverstone and it was a great end to a wonderful conference.
Overall, the operation of the event required minimal input from us; everything just seemed to happen.”
