The Paris and Farnborough International Airshows

The Paris and Farnborough Airshows are the largest Aerospace Industry events in the world.


With up to 2,300 exhibitors participating, and attracting up to 321,000 trade and public visitors over the week, the biennial events are the highlight of the airshow calendar. CGC Event Caterers have catered at Farnborough and Paris for in excess of 30 years with some exhibitor relationships stretching back to those early days. We have been proud to count some of the biggest industry names amongst our clients, including Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Cobham PLC, GKN Aerospace and L3 Communications to name but a few.


Our operation at both events is truly unique, we are the only caterer to create a kitchen base area at both airfields where all food is produced on site utilising local suppliers. Our passion for excellent food, served well, has ensured that we are well placed to maintain and grow our exhibitor relationships.




Chalet Catering

We offer a full range of menus and services which are expertly delivered in exhibitors’ chalets. The operations are created to match the client’s specific requirements. The offer varies from a full a la carte dining service, buffet style menus and also more informal cafe and canape style operations. These are delivered by designated teams of professional management, chef and service teams.


Stand, Exhibit and Aircraft Catering

Aside from our chalet operation, we also offer catering services to stands within the exhibition halls. We offer food and drink deliveries by a designated team to outside exhibits, including client’s aircrafts. Crucially, our experienced team understand the traffic regulations at each venue to ensure that breakfasts, lunches and receptions are delivered at the time requested.



Due to the trust and strong relationships we have built over the years with our clients, we have in previous years joined them at other worldwide airshows to offer consultation services with the site caterers to ensure that the standards that we deliver in Paris and Farnborough are maintained.
