Fly High, With Sodexo

You are: home > fly high, with sodexo

EVENT organisers can let their imagination take flight, with a venue that enables them and their guests to reach for the skies.      

Leading UK conference and events company, Sodexo Prestige Venues & Events, has teamed up with the Emirates Aviation Experience, at North Greenwich, to offer event organisers a truly unique experience.

The venue, the first of its kind in the world, gives visitors an insight into the operations and modern achievements of commercial air travel, using state-of-the-art technology, interactive displays and life-size aircraft models.

Now, the Emirates Aviation Experience is inviting event organisers to check-in - and host everything from social events to team-building days, for parties of between four and 100 people, at the venue.

Guests or delegates can enjoy an interactive exhibition taking them on a journey behind the scenes of modern aviation, learn all about the life of a cabin crew member and the science of flight with a real Rolls-Royce Trent 900 engine and even follow the journey of their luggage from check in to collection.

They can then head upstairs to try out four, state-of-the-art flight simulators, where they can take off, land and explore a range of 10 destinations before testing out their new skills in a landing competition.

Organisers can also choose from a range of catering options, such as bar snacks, canapés and a buffet with drinks for an evening event, or, for smaller groups during the day, take advantage of the venue’s on-site artisan café.

“We are delighted to be partnering with the Emirates Aviation Experience,” said Natasha Carr, UK Venue & Events Marketing Manager, at Sodexo Prestige Venues & Events.

“What it offers is truly unique; an exciting opportunity to discover more about how air travel works, while enjoying first class hospitality from the on-site team, who offer a full event planning service, so the organiser can just sit back and enjoy the occasion just as much as their guests.”

At the North Greenwich Peninsula, a short walk from both North Greenwich tube/bus station and the North Greenwich River Pier, the Emirates Aviation Experience is ideally located for businesses based at Canary Wharf and is just a 10-minute journey over the Thames from the ExCeL on the Emirates Air Line.

Guests wishing to combine a drinks reception at The Emirates Aviation Experience with a dinner at The Crystal can fly their guests across the water on-board the Emirates Air Line cable car for a truly unique experience.
