Industry gears up for Catering Insight Awards’ celebration of the year tonight

The UK catering equipment supply chain is waiting with bated breath to see who has won at tonight’s Catering Insight Awards.

Over 200 distributors and suppliers will be heading down to 8 Northumberland Avenue in central London tonight to see who has won the only entirely industry-voted accolades. The third annual event has attracted more attendees and more votes than ever, with distributors deciding supplier category winners and suppliers choosing the distributor victors.

With a black tie dress code, the action begins at 7.30pm with a bubbly drinks reception before the gala dinner and awards ceremony. Free-flowing drinks will be available for the duration of the evening, all as part of the ticket.

A total of 15 accolades will be presented, while throughout the night a fun photobooth, sponsored by Hobart, will be available for guests to create and print memories of the evening.

Official proceedings will finish around 11pm, then the celebrations will continue from 11.30pm at the official After-Party, sponsored by Atosa. This year the venue is the Opal Bar on Victoria Embankment, literally at the end of Northumberland Avenue and a 3 minute walk from the main event. Guests will be greeted with a free glass of bubbly and will also be able to exchange a token for another free drink of their choice.

Not only that, free shots will be available and free bottles of spirits will be on the tables in Catering Insight’s exclusive area. Festivities will continue until the club closes at 3am.

For those travelling to 8 Northumberland Avenue tonight, the nearest underground stations are Embankment on the District and Circle lines and Charing Cross on the Northern and Bakerloo lines, while Charing Cross is also the nearest mainline rail station.
