The UK catering equipment industry has snapped up the final tickets for this year’s Catering Insight Awards, in association with the First Choice Group.
The gala event, to be held this Thursday, 28 November, at London’s Banking Hall near Bank, central London, will be a full house of 220 senior sector executives.
Anyone who intended to secure a ticket but didn’t get around to it will now be disappointed, but Catering Insight can offer some comfort – the ceremony will be live-tweeted on the night using the hashtag #CIAwards19 and our newsletter and subsequent print issue will review all of the winners.
But for those lucky people who have managed to book their place, the evening will begin at 7pm with a drinks reception, followed by the main awards ceremony, interspersed with a luxury three-course meal.
There will also be one or two surprises along the way, with formal proceedings scheduled to finish around 11.15pm.
