The Catering Insight Awards 2019, in association with the First Choice Group, has welcomed back Hobart to support an increased remit for the southern distributor category at this year’s event.

The re-tooled Distributor of the Year – South of the UK Award now incorporates dealers in Wales as well as southern England, which gives Hobart an increased touchpoint with a wider range of distributors.

This year’s event will take place on Thursday 28 November at the grand Banking Hall in central London. It will once again attract the cream of the UK catering equipment industry and allow a full breadth of distributors, suppliers and manufacturers to celebrate this year’s achievements and network in a fun, social setting.

Tim Bender, sales director, Hobart Equipment Division said: “Distributors are absolutely integral to our sales philosophy, and we recognise this through our proud sponsorship of the category and by championing the event as a whole.

“This will be our fourth time supporting the Catering Insight Awards and each year we’ve seen highly deserved winners. Put simply, if we thrive, so do our dealer partners – and that’s a fact worthy of celebration.”

He continued: “The event is a great chance to meet and network with the industry and this year we come to the party, united, as the Hobart Equipment Division (Hobart UK has now aligned its Warewash and Cooking divisions). This is another great opportunity to talk about the many benefits of dealing with a single sales and administration operation.

“The event shines a bright spotlight on the very best in our industry. Both nominees and winners have made a significant contribution to our industry and their recognition can only be a positive thing.”
