The Commercial Kitchen show is eager to reward UK catering equipment manufacturers for their resilience and innovation in 2021, by backing this year’s Catering Insight Awards.
The exhibition is to sponsor the Supplier of the Year – Heavy Equipment category, one of 16 trophies that will be presented at the gala ceremony on 18 November in the grand 8 Northumberland Avenue in central London.
Nina Jones, group marketing manager at Commercial Kitchen’s organiser, Diversified Communications, underlined: “Heavy equipment is such a crucial part of back of house operations. It’s great to once again be recognising the innovative manufacturers in this area.”
She said of the event: “Sponsoring the Catering Insight Awards is a great opportunity to further align ourselves with the nominees and winners from within the industry that we are so proud to serve and be part of.
“It’s fantastic that the Awards are able to return to a live format again this year. We’re looking forward to networking with friends and colleagues and celebrating all the great innovations from the past year.”
Commercial Kitchen itself will return to further highlight catering equipment innovation next year, alongside sister shows Casual Dining and lunch! on 14-15 September at London’s ExCeL.
The Catering Insight Awards 2021 shortlist will be announced before the end of this month, and subsequently hundreds of senior sector executives will once again choose the winners themselves, with distributors voting on the supplier categories and vice versa.

Catering Insight takes the safety of guests very seriously, and so will be implementing many measures ahead of and during the ceremony to mitigate Covid risks as much as feasible. The team has secured a larger space than would normally be required, to make sure there is plenty of extra room for social distancing if preferred. We have also opted for the largest possible tables (usually used for larger groups) so there is as much space during the presentation as possible.
Guests will be recommended to wear masks before, after and between the three courses of the evening’s meal. Finally, we will be asking all attendees to provide either proof of double vaccination or a negative lateral flow test within 48 hours of the event.
