Warewashing manufacturer Hobart is continuing its support of new catering industry champions by sponsoring the Distributor of the Year – South of England category at the Catering Insight Awards 2018, in association with Atosa.
The 2018 event will take place on Thursday 29 November at the glitzy Bloomsbury Ballroom in Central London.
More than 200 catering equipment distributor, supplier and manufacturer executives will gather to celebrate the sector’s achievements over the last 12 months.
Hobart, which sponsored Catering Insight’s photobooth at last year’s event, has secured the position of Distributor of the Year – South of England category sponsor at this year’s event in a bid to celebrate the work of distributors.
Tim Bender, UK sales director of Warewashing at Hobart UK, said: “We’re honoured to yet again be sponsoring the Catering Insight Awards, as they showcase and celebrate exceptional distributor performances over the past year.
“This year Hobart will be sponsoring ‘Distributor of the Year’ – South of England – one of the key regional awards on the night. We’re firm believers that innovation throughout the distributor network is something truly worthy of celebration and, as in past ceremonies, look forward to a night of networking with friends, colleagues and dealer partners.
“Hearty congratulations in advance to nominees in all categories – your hard work and dedication to the industry never goes unnoticed by Hobart.”
Hobart-specialist distributors are currently reaping the rewards of the company’s Focus Plus 5 web platform – an exclusive, personalised sales, admin and price support tool – with the five most proactive sites increasing business by an average of 34% YOY.
Launched to key dealer partners at the turn of 2016, and in operation since then, Focus Plus 5 presents a completely unique opportunity for dealers to drive their businesses forward.
