Industry buying consortium Cedabond has signed on for the third year in a row as a supporting partner for the Catering Insight Awards 2018, in association with Atosa.
This year the black tie ceremony will take place on Thursday 29 November at the glitzy Bloomsbury Ballroom in central London.
The 15 award categories celebrate both distributor and supplier success and are uniquely voted for by the industry itself, with distributors voting on the supplier accolades and suppliers choosing the dealer winners.
Cedabond executive director Phil Martin praised the initiative behind the event: “This will be the third successive year that Cedabond has sponsored the Catering Insight Awards and I have to say that they get better every year.
“Dealers and manufacturers are so pressed for time these days that opportunities such as this, which allow them to get together in a social setting without the pressures of work, are few and far between. As a result the Catering Insight Awards have become a real focal point in terms of cementing existing business relationships and forging new ones.”
He detailed that Cedabond has re-signed as a supporting partner because: “As the industry’s leading equipment purchasing consortium we are one of the main conduits between manufacturers and dealers. If our continued sponsorship helps the Catering Insight Awards to keep on growing and further strengthens the bond between manufacturers and dealers then that can only be good for them, us and the industry as a whole.”
According to Martin: “I think every industry needs to make sure that it recognises the people and businesses that are driving it forward. And at a time where so much of the business conducted on a day-to-day basis is via email, mobile phone or other form of electronic communication, the equipment sector needs an event such as this where people from across the industry can meet face-to-face to discuss ideas and the common challenges that many of them face.
“And perhaps best of all, it really is an all-inclusive event – where else would you find representatives of dealers, both large and small, manufacturers and service companies all gathered together in one place?”
