ICCA UK & Ireland signs deal with Leith’s

The UK & Ireland Chapter of ICCA has teamed up with catering firm Leith’s to expand and enhance the ICCA member activity programme, launch joint initiatives and to raise the profile of catering within the meetings industry. The three-year deal was brokered by Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre London commercial director Steve Norcliffe and marks the first business partenership with a commercial organisation that the ICCA UK & Ireland Chapter has entered into. ICCA UK & Ireland chairperson Brian Horsburgh said that the deal fitted with the move to expand and enhance the member-activity programme and the Chapter’s pioneering of joint initiatives within the UK&I meetings industry. “The three year business partnership with Leith’s has given the Chapter a major boost to enable it to develop our activities,” said Horsburgh. “We chose Leith's because it is a major caterer and part of the global Compass Catering Group. The relationship will be a working partnership for both parties. ICCA UK&I Chapter will involve Leith’s in our activities, and invite it to engage with the industry on key catering issues.” Andy Hardy, operations director, Leith’s said: “We will be working with the ICCA UK&I Chapter to raise the profile of the catering function as one of the key components of any meeting, in an international multicultural context. ICCA UK&I will utilise our expertise and experience in appropriate Chapter events and joint initiatives.”
