The day is upon us for the Catering Insight Awards 2021 and anticipation is at an all-time high.
More than 200 leading foodservice equipment industry executives will descend on 8 Northumberland Avenue in central London tonight for the gala, black tie ceremony.
Proceedings will kick off at 7pm with an hour’s drinks reception in the Old Billiard Room, before the action moves into the Ballroom from 8pm for the awards presentations interspersed with a luxury three-course meal.
Guests will be entertained throughout the night by the talents of an acoustic guitarist and a caricaturist, as well as enjoying everything available at the bar, all as part of their tickets.
16 winners will be revealed, as voted for by hundreds of industry executives themselves. The full Catering Insight Awards 2021 shortlist can be seen HERE.
