Event & Conference Management

Crave &Gobble

was started by


Carl Van Der Merwe

The concept was:

Dreamed up in 1990 at the start of his career in hospitality. Being trained in Customer Service Delivery, In-Flight Catering and Cuisine, On-board Chef and First Class Galley Specialist. Traveling the globe for 17 years, what better way to share his experiences with others.

Conceived in 2010 and the idea was to offer a platform for catering specialists and decor designers to showcase their talents. Working together effectively joining different elements to create a unique product that will offer all the services to the customer under a single authority therefore eliminating the need for third parties. It is more cost effective and saves a considerable amount of time thus improving customer service delivery.

Born in 2012 after years of building alliances and negotiating with various industries. Having done work for Big Corporate Entities - local and international, Marketing and Media Giants as well as Famous Brands and Government he acquired the knowledge and confidence until he was satisfied that all systems were in place. It was then that Crave & Gobble was ready to take its first independent steps.
