Atosa has become the first ever firm to bag a headline sponsorship for the Catering Insight Awards, in the fourth year of the gala event, following its support of the official After-Party in 2017.
Therefore this year’s ceremony will now be known as the Catering Insight Awards, in association with Atosa.
The venue for 2018 has already been announced as the prestigious Bloomsbury Ballroom in Holborn, central London, with the date confirmed as Thursday 29 November.
Atosa UK’s sales director Lee Donkin revealed: “Sponsoring the After-Party last year gave us huge coverage in the industry and certainly helped us raise our profile.
“Hotelympia will be our last show until Host in November 2019 so we wanted to keep up momentum with our brand and we thought of no better way than to be the headline sponsor of this great awards evening.”
This week, Atosa will be on stand 1810 at Hotelympia in London’s ExCel and will also be using the trade show to fundraise for the Children’s Heart Foundation.
On the Catering Insight Awards, Donkin further added: “The event is the heart and soul of the industry, bringing everyone together under one roof and acknowledging great people and businesses throughout the sector.
“Raising our profile is key to any sponsorship, however, celebrating an evening with great people and presenting the headline Lifetime Achievement Award trophy are what we are really looking forward to.”
There will be 15 accolades on offer during the evening comprising:
