AmadeusAmadeus has won a five-year contract, which will see the business continue as the catering provider at the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open, which forms part of the European Tour.

The new contract is worth £2.5 million to Amadeus – which has been working on the event since 1999. Amadeus will operate all catering outlets for visitors and players during the four day tournament, as well as providing all the corporate hospitality.

Director of International Championships for PGA, Peter Adams, said: “We’re delighted to be continuing the working relationship with Amadeus. They are an award-winning team who inspired us with their approach, their ideas and overwhelming passion.

“With more than 35 years of experience catering at some of the country’s top venues and events, Amadeus never fail to bring us new ideas and concepts to help further improve our catering offer for our visitors and players, year on year.”

Managing director of Amadeus, Kevin Watson said: “We are extremely proud that Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open has chosen Amadeus as their sole catering provider for the next five years. This win shows recognition of the highly innovative approach we have brought to the table, and of our growing reputation.

“Our partnership with the organisers of the event has gone from strength to strength since we first worked on the event back in 1999, and we look forward to continuing to work with the European Tour to maximise the catering opportunities through our strategic insight of the industry.”

This year’s event will return to Castle Stuart Golf Links, Inverness for the third successive year from July 11-14, 2013. In 2014 Royal Aberdeen Golf Club will stage an event for the first time from July 10-13 over the classic Balgownie links.
