Fine China perfect for banquet, conference and wedding venues

In the banqueting sector, operators may require 1000s of pieces to cater for weddings, banquets, gala events, conferences and graduations. Timelessness of design and longevity of tableware products in service are extremely important factors to consider because of the initial outlay.

The extreme demands of such a busy hospitality environment means that the quality of the product is key, and while it has to stand up to the demands of a working kitchen, it also has to look a million dollars front of house!

“The dinnerware we have for banqueting in the Great Room is contemporary, with a subtle white on white design. It offers refinement at a private dinner for two and at the same time can withstand the harsh environment of a banqueting operation for up to 2000 people.”

Dudson products are designed to last. Twist, from our Fine China range, is a good example of this. Although white, it has a subtle embossment that takes its inspiration from a classic ceramic design. So, although the design is modern, it is also timeless. Operators don’t have to worry about replacing their tableware every couple of years.

Offering the same qualities as Twist, but with a delicate embossment, Solaris is also a great choice for banqueting operations. Both decorations offer a wide range of items, allowing chefs the creativity to make each dish visually appealing, but with one eye on portion control.

We wanted to ensure that we sourced a selection of tableware that was not only visually appealing to our guests but was also hard wearing and suitable to withstand the pressures of large-scale events: At full capacity, we are able to serve 7,500 dishes in 1.5 hours within the Arora Ballroom. For the banqueting areas, we went with the standard Precision range. It’s a tried and tested product within the hospitality sector and we knew that it would stand up to the demands put upon it.”

Our products are also renowned for their durability in use and operators have peace of mind that the range they choose is ‘fit for purpose’. We offer a Lifetime Edge Chip Warranty on everything, yes everything we manufacture in our Stoke-on-Trent factory, to show our confidence in the longevity of Dudson products. The less breakage an operator has in use, the fewer replacements are needed, resulting in savings on cost over time.

“It’s no good just having a great plate if we are having to replace it every week due to breakages. It becomes costly and in return can give weakened perception of the supplier from the chef’s point of view.”
