Dine sees profits surge

Leeds-based event planning group Dine has praised the ‘resurgent corporate hospitality sector’ after seeing turnover reach £2.37m.

A strong performance in the year ending October 2015, was boosted by year-on-year growth for its outside catering division Dine Events which increased turnover to £1.15m.

Dine provides bespoke hospitality, event and venue management to clients and partner venues throughout the North of England.

The group also saw a strong performance over the winter period from its flagship venue The Mansion in Roundhay Park which it jointly developed with Leeds City Council.

Dine managing director, Daniel Gill, said: “As the business world experiences an upswing in confidence, professional companies are once again turning to corporate entertainment as an effective way to build and reinforce important business relationships.

“Despite a tight marketplace, the Dine Events team, supported by a targeted marketing and PR campaign, proved successful in attracting corporate business with our flexible range of services and venues.

“We are targeting growth over the next year with exciting expansion plans which include new services and strategic partnerships with some key venues in the region.”  

Established in 1998, Dine caters for more than 100 corporate events and 200 weddings a year as well as providing exclusive private dining.

The company provides event services for organisations ranging from English Heritage and the National Trust to the owners of some of the UK’s most notable private houses.
