Roleplay

Our event will be held next week on July 21 and we will hold this event in Beijing SKP shopping mall, the event time will be from 3-5pm the people to come will be around 30. Including media, KOLs and VIC guests. For the menu we hope can include 3 sweet food and 3 salty food. 6 canapés in total.

Also we would like to have some soft drinks, champagne and non alcoholic cocktails.

Can you give us a proposal in advance before the end of this week.
Around Friday?

We need around 6 waiters and I forget to say we also need the catering service for our store around 3 people. 2 in front of the door and 1 at the rear of the store.
So the menu is same as the atrium part.

Considering the weather it is very hot recently so we need to prepare enough drinks for the customers. They might be thirsty.

We can combine both. since we are the UK company so maybe some dishes are with UK culture and the food must be delicious.

you can pass around to actively provide the food and drinks. For the atrium because the size is not very big I suggest to stand around the atrium store because we are worried may pour out.

When will you stand by on the event day. Because on our event we will start from 3 pm. so will you arrive 2 hours in advance or .
1 hour in advance. Since you have to prepare the food. You have to bring the food on site and put the food on trays so you need time to do it.
We have a uniform guideline I will send you later. Maybe just all black.

For the tray we have some guidelines as well so I can share you afterwards.

Around Friday would be perfect.

We need around 6 waiters and I forgot to say we also need the catering service for our store on the first floor.  we probably need 3 waiters. 2 in front of the door and 1 at the rear of the store.
So the menu is same as the atrium part. / both places will sever the same dishes.

Considering the weather is very hot recently we need to prepare enough drinks for the customers. They might be thirsty.

We can combine both. since we are a UK company/from the UL so maybe some dishes could be inspired by the UK culture and the food must be delicious.

you can have the waiters pass around to actively provide the food and drinks.
Since the atrium is quite small, I suggest to have the waiters standing in the corners. / on the side. Moreover it would help to avoid accidents. It’s easy to spill a drink on the floor….
