POP Up Restaurant or Exhibition Food Court

At Main Event Catering, we are now offering a fantastic new service called the Pop Up Restaurant or Exhibition Food Court.

If you are hosting a public event, such as an expo, a conference, concert or pretty much any large event out there, you will require some sort of catering to keep the masses happy and fed.

We provide it all – generators, seating, structures and kitchens all to cater for your guest…

In the past your options would be fast food burger joints and hotdog stands, but we are taking the concept of event catering to a whole other level.


You outdid yourself this year! 😊 We had so many compliments for your food, whether it was the take away meals or the box dinners, everyone raved. Thank you so much for delivering such a smooth service and great great food!

Everyone loved your food so much I fear we owe you a top up PO. Please could you send myself and Ayrton the final recon so we can get the paperwork and invoicing finalised this week. (Original PO attached for reference)

We would like to close the project by the 16th December so we can all take a few days break  😊

“On behalf of the African National Congress we would like to personally thank you and your team for the conferences held in Nasrec. We had the Policy Conference in June and then had the National elective conference in December which both these conference were a success all because of your hard work, resilience, patience and especially your humble nature
It was a pleasure working with you, and most importantly you were accommodating to all the changes that were presented to you at the last hour. You thought on your feet which made both conferences go seamless with no hustles . The food was amazing yet you were feeding over 5000 comrades 2 meals in a day with the welcome snack and the tea and coffee which was served throughout the day. You did this for the full 5 days then on the last day you did food packs for our comrades to travel with, that too was just on another level.
We received ongoing compliments for the food and how well planned the conferences were, So once again thank you for making our conferences so amazing, We most certainly would love to work with you in future.”

Sibongile Nhlapho, ANC

We couldn’t have done it without you and your team on the day and are very grateful to be able to call you an extension of our team.. you really made us look good! The food was amazing, inventive and really helped to drive our message of “Discover More” home – the colourful burgers were out of this world.

Your Gin mixologist was such a big hit … in fact by far my favourite

Please give a special thanks to Christo who really was amazing.

Thanks again “
