Back to the '64 World's Fair: Amerivents Named Exclusive Caterer at Queens Museum
NEW YORK, April 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Fifty years ago, the 1964 New York World's Fair opened in Flushing Meadow. If you missed it, no worries: You can hold your next party or event at one of two landmark Fair buildings, with catering by Amerivents, one of the nation's premier full-service hospitality companies.
Amerivents has been named the exclusive caterer at Queens Museum, where a controversial Andy Warhol mural commissioned for the '64 Fair will have a second life beginning April 27. Amerivents is also the exclusive caterer at the nearby New York Hall of Science.
"We're excited to partner with these two iconic venues," says Amerivents president and founder James Della Pace. "Queens Museum is an elegant setting for weddings, benefits, awards ceremonies, and corporate events." The Hall of Science, "is ideal for science and technology events, children's parties, graduation celebrations, and bar and bat mitzvahs."
You can go home again
Queens native Della Pace has put his stamp on thousands of successful events in New York, Boston and Baltimore over the last two decades. Since 2007, Amerivents has catered, staffed and managed events of every size and type - from private dinners to world-class sports events - throughout metro New York and nationwide.
Amerivents will support the opening party for Andy Warhol's 13 Most Wanted Men installation, which goes on exhibit at Queens Museum starting April 27. In September, Amerivents will provide service staff for the US Tennis Open, as it has every year since 2007. Amerivents has also been a key presence at the Kentucky Derby, the Big Apple Block Party and the Democratic and Republican National Conventions.
No charge for hand-holding
Amerivents' service philosophy can be captured in two words: Be present.
"Whether we're handling just the catering or managing the entire event, we begin working with clients early in the planning stage, listening, empathizing, and discussing options," Della Pace says. "We're also on hand to oversee day-of execution and management. Just having us on site can be a great source of comfort for clients."
Please note: Our menu options are amazing
Amerivents' menus are flexible and tailored to each client's preferences and needs. "We've done everything from simple buffets to multi-course creations by world-class chefs," Della Pace says. Ingredients are locally sourced as much as possible, whether the menu is American or international, traditional or nouveau.
