Hot 100 revealed at glittering industry event


The wait was finally over last night as the inaugural Catering Insight Hot 100 2012 was revealed at a glittering party for more than 300 catering equipment professionals.

Guests arrived at the spectacular One Mayfair where they enjoyed welcome drinks and a chance to network before the Hot 100 2012 was revealed.

The Hot 100, supported by Principal Partner Standex Food Service Equipment, was split into five categories — Industry Innovators, Business Big Shots, Rising Stars, Unsung Heroes and Winning Teams — showcasing the most innovative and exciting companies and individuals working in the UK catering equipment industry.

At 9pm last night, Catering Insight editor Andrew Seymour took to the stage to welcome guests and congratulate the catering equipment community for all of its hard work in 2012.

A special film reel revealing each of the Hot 100 stars was then unveiled, showcasing this year’s Hot 100 and their stunning photographs.

The party continued late into the night, with every guest also first to receive a copy of the Hot 100 yearbook, containing profiles of all the individuals and teams in the inaugural list.
