Hobart to help Catering Insight Awards guests make memories

Hobart Warewash's Focus Plus 5 dealer partners are reporting sales increases.

Last year’s Catering Insight Awards featured a fun photo booth which proved to be such a hit it is returning for this year’s edition, courtesy of Hobart UK.

During the 2017 gala ceremony on Thursday 23 November at 8 Northumberland Avenue in the heart of central London, the photo booth will be available for all guests to create and keep a special memento of the night.

The booth includes a prop box for those who want to add some outrageous style to their photos, plus all pictures will be printed out.

Six people can fit into the booth simultaneously, so all guests need to do is grab a silly prop, strike a pose and press the button to create a lasting memory.

Tim Bender, UK sales director – warewashing at Hobart UK commented: “The Catering Insight Awards are a fantastic chance for the industry to network in an informal manner, bringing together the cream of the crop, to mark the many achievements of the past year.

“Hobart is a firm believer that this is an industry worth celebrating, and we’re delighted to support the Catering Insight Awards as we continue to build our relationships with UK dealers. Our sponsorship of the photo booth at the event should make for some fascinating and fun scenes. We promise not to use any of the resulting collateral against anyone in the aftermath, no matter how tempting! Congratulations in advance to the deserving winners and to those shortlisted. You do our industry proud.”
