FEA has announced a new awards scheme that celebrates all the great work that has taken place within the industry and the invaluable information that has been shared throughout one of the toughest periods ever experienced.
The FEA Foodservice Top 100 Social Media Influencers is an opportunity to recognise those who inspire, innovate and educate the sector, and to highlight the impact of those people whose work has encouraged the industry through the worst of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Steve Hobbs, chair of FEA, said: “These individuals continue to play a vital role in supporting the foodservice equipment and hospitality sectors to build back better, and social media has been key to reaching so many people across the board. The awards are the opportunity to acknowledge and applaud their efforts and their successes.”
Anyone can nominate individuals who they think are the most influential people within the industry across their respective digital platforms. They can enter as many people as they wish, and FEA is encouraging nominators to share their involvement on social media, using #FEAFoodService100. The closing date for nominations is 30 June 2021.
On 1 July, the top 250 nominees will form an initial longlist. The longlist will then be independently evaluated, based on expert appraisal of their real world industry impact and digital media influence. Following the evaluation, the list will then be scaled down to a ranked list of 100 people.
The FEA Foodservice Top 100 Social Media Influencers will be announced at an awards ceremony on 15 September, as part of the FEA Industry Conference 2021.
