Jumeirah Hospitality will be responsible for the catering services at Luxembourg’s Expo 2020 Dubai pavilion.
A memorandum of understanding (MoU) was signed on Wednesday morning between the commissioner general of Luxembourg at Expo 2020 Dubai, Maggy Nagel, and vice president of global sales for MEASA and the Asia region at Jumeirah Hospitality, Linda Lewis.
Nagel said: “Jumeirah Group provides a complete understanding of local restrictions and constraints. The MoU that we have signed with Jumeirah Hospitality will also help us to work hand-in-hand with on-site teams, local authorities, and organisers.”
Under the agreement, Jumeirah will handle operations at the pavilion’s Schengen Lounge restaurant, which is set to offer visitors a mixture of traditional Luxembourgish and Emirati cuisines and is being built to include an open kitchen, as well as a take-out corner called “Luxembourg on a plate”.
The concept for the restaurant has been developed in collaboration with representatives of Horesca, Euro-Toques, the Vatel-Club, the Lycée technique de Bonnevoie (LTB), the Institut viti-vinicole, and the Ecole d’Hôtellerie et de Tourisme du Luxembourg (EHTL).
