On behalf of Rowing Australia I am writing to confirm that Fiesta Catering and Events recently provided event, function and workforce catering services to the World Rowing Masters Regatta in Ballarat, Victoria. For our sport, this was a major international event held over four days and included over 1100 competitors, 200 workforce and four VIP functions, including a catered evening function servicing over 300 people.

Under the direction and leadership of Arnold and Ibo Safi, the team at Fiesta Events and Catering delivered a seamless, high quality, professional and friendly service. From our initial meeting and discussions, through the negotiation and contract phases, event delivery and post event financial reconciliation, the communication with Arnold and Ibo was prompt, open and clear. The professionalism and conduct demonstrated was exceptional, and this provided me with complete assurance and confidence in their service.
At the event, the installation of equipment, cleanliness and presentation of the catering service was of the highest standard. The team at Fiesta Catering and Events worked cooperatively with other event service providers to ensure a successful event for everyone involved.

Fiesta Events and Catering have provided the complete catering solution of approximately 30 individual catering sites for the Festival of Sails Event in Geelong held annually over the Australia Day long weekend. The Festival of Sails Event is the combination of Victoria's oldest sporting completion (yachting regatta), with the City of Geelong's annual Australia Day Celebrations which attract 100,000 visitors each year.

In 2012 for the Jan 2013 Event Fiesta Events was engaged to undertake all aspects of the Event Catering from the sourcing and contracting of 30 catering sites across three precincts on the Geelong waterfront, through to the bump-in/out management, provision and management of services (power) to these sites, ensuring permits and licence requirements are met. The outsourcing of the Event catering sites, in return for a fixed guaranteed income for the Event and provided the significant benefit to the Event from a reduction in hands on management of these catering sites, delivered a better quality and mix of food options and of course reduced the financial risk to the Event.
Over the course of these three year's we have found Fiesta Events & Catering very good to work with and have appreciated their input and expert advice into improvements to the overall Event. We have enjoyed working with them over the past three years and would recommend them highly to others.

Festival of Sails
The Fiesta team were very professional in all aspects of the festival planning and execution. The team was able to cater for a large number of festival patrons in particular during the busy lunch period.
I would recommend Fiesta Catering for future events
