One Event Management has acquired event design company Absolute Taste, and plans to combine the company with its premium catering brand Mecco.

 

Mecco, which will be rebranded as Absolute Taste, will combine with the existing Absolute Taste business to create a leading luxury event design company.

 

The new incarnation of Absolute Taste will operate across a broad spectrum of hospitality services, including the company’s existing portfolio of restaurants, private jet catering, bespoke events, fixed site contracts and sports hospitality.

 

The existing teams and offices will be unaffected by the acquisition, and further investment from One Event Management will provide strong opportunities for the business to grow.

 

Lyndy Redding (pictured right), founder and managing director of Absolute Taste said: “I love Absolute Taste. It’s my life, and the people who work for us are my family, therefore this is such an exciting opportunity as it widens our scope and brings us a raft of fabulous new events to work on and extraordinary people to work with.”

 

Neil MacLaurin, chairman of One Event Management added: “We couldn’t be more pleased that Lyndy and her team will be joining forces with One Event Management. Absolute Taste marks the best of the best in food design and hospitality, and is a fantastic fit as we strive to reach the pinnacle in food, drink and customer entertaining. We’re busy planning this year’s events and our new team is sure to knock creativity out of the park and create some phenomenal customer experiences.”
