It all began in Milan in 1991 when 3 catering professionals with a long international experience founded the first company in the city specializing in banqueting: the initials of the three founders form the acronym AFM.
In 2011 AFM received the Design Award from the prestigious international magazine Wallpaper for the finger food created for the Prada Spring-Summer fashion show.
In the years to come, AFM has managed some of the most scenic city locations: Palazzo Bovara, Terrazza Martini, Villa Necchi.
Today AFM Banqueting believes in a different way of doing banqueting, an integrated and narrative way where the customer’s identity is at the center of everything. First of all we dedicate ourselves to listening to you: we want to know your identity and goals in order to translate them into hospitality and welcome.
We design and create tailor-made events, taking care of every aspect.
