The Catering Insight Awards 2018, in association with Atosa, look set to be the biggest celebration of the UK catering equipment industry yet, at Central London’s Bloomsbury Ballroom on Thursday 29 November.
And the early part of the gala night will be even more entertaining this year, as we are bringing back the popular magician, Robert Fox, who amazed guests of our inaugural ceremony in 2015.
Throughout the drinks reception, sponsored by Pentland Wholesale, and through to the banqueting, Fox will dazzle the cream of UK dealers, suppliers and manufacturers with his unique brand of close-up magic and mind-reading, guaranteed to surprise and astound.
Once again, 15 awards will be presented during the night, and those who would like to be considered for them should take note that nominations will open on Monday 3 September. Anyone in the industry will be able to nominate anyone else, with self-nominations welcome. Look out for details of how to nominate soon.
When the shortlist is subsequently announced, the winners will be entirely decided by the industry itself, with senior dealer executives voting on the supplier categories and vice versa for the distributor accolades.
The now-legendary After-Party will commence following the main event, to continue the celebrations into the early hours, with details to follow soon.
