Continental Tyres takes German hotel chain on the road


Maritim Hotels’ in-house events and catering service has received the ultimate accolade by being asked to cater for a Continental Tyres event in mainland Spain, where it does not own any properties.

Continental Tyres was so impressed with the high level of service it received at its ‘African Summer’ event in Germany in 2010 that it commissioned the hotel chain to travel to Barcelona for its ContiPremiumContact 5 tyre launch for more than 2,000 guests.

Travelling more than 1,600 kilometres in five lorries, the Maritim team set up shop at the Parcmotor Castellolí circuit near Barcelona for the four-week event. In addition to a mobile kitchen, furniture and decorations, the team also transported the entire dinnerware such as plates, glasses and cutlery.

Dirk Breuckmann, Maritim Events and Catering Service co-ordinator (MECS) said: “The fact that MECS was able to secure this contract against stiff competition from catering companies in Spain is not only unusual and a tremendous achievement, but another milestone for this new service.”
