Amadeus' events team has won several sports catering contracts worth £3 million across golf, tennis and cycling.
The caterer has added five golf events to its portfolio. These include the retention of the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open for three years, the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship and AIG Women's British Open for a further two years each and the 2019 Solheim Cup.
This year will also be the team's 20th year catering at the Scottish Open and 14th year at the British Open. Amadeus had already won a three-year golf tournament contract with The Betfred British Masters, which began in May in Southport.
The company's wins in the tennis world include the retention of the Nature Valley International Eastbourne and Nature Valley Open Nottingham for a further three-years each. It also secured a contract to deliver the catering services at the Nature Valley Classic Birmingham until 2021.
Amadeus has also secured a cycling contract with Yorkshire 2019 UCI Road World Championships later this month.
Sam Bates, events director at Amadeus, said: "We always look to push the boundaries of creativity to keep things interesting, providing bespoke menus and working with local suppliers to keep our offer authentic.
"Our expertise in large-scale event catering is now widely recognised across the sports industry, leading us to secure a number of exciting new contracts this year."
In addition to its portfolio of big sporting events, Amadeus' events team caters at more than 150 corporate and private events a year and 19 horseracing fixtures at small jumps venue Stratford Racecourse.
