top of that, the Inventus Group crew know the locations through and through and as such are capable of changing the setting in a matter of hours. Faes elaborates: “You could be having a lunch at Dock3, a meeting elsewhere and come back with the venue changed into a place for a walking dinner or even a club setting for a staff party, complete with DJ and/or cover band. All the gear is stored in-house, so there’s no added costs for transport. Both Dock3 and AEC are not far from the centre of Antwerp and there’s ample parking space.”
Catering A new name that is part of the Inventus Group is not actually that new at all: Eventus Catering was co-founded by
Faes and chef Mark Adriaenssens for the Group itself, but the two have a history together, with Adriaenssens being responsible for the catering of Dock3 and Faes’ Jetset Events for about five years. “It’s very convenient to have a catering partner aboard Inventus Group,” says Faes. “Their team is capable of delivering practically everything: from simple crisps to a luxurious three-course dinner, all tailored to whatever your needs are. They’ve done catering at external venues for 2,000 people - large groups are no problem at all.”
Experience What is most important for Inventus Group, according to Faes, is that once
an arrangement is made, you can be sure the Group will handle everything perfectly from start to finish. The joint venture provides flexibility for all parties involved and if one only needs the catering department or event planning, or just the location, that is also possible. Faes smiles: “But when they come to us for just one part of the Group and we tell them all the other possibilities, it’s only a matter of time before we get the other partners on board. That’s because we’re professionals with years of experience and we look out for each other, making sure our team provides the best experience possible.” Web: www.inventusgroup.be
