The stunning Old Billiard Room at 8 Northumberland Avenue will be the venue for this year’s Catering Insight Awards gala dinner.

Put 23 November in your diary for the glitziest event in the UK catering equipment industry this year: the Catering Insight Awards 2017.

Following extensive sector research, Catering Insight has listened to feedback resulting from the first two highly successful ceremonies, and has now moved the gala awards dinner from a Wednesday night to a Thursday night. This will give the distributor, manufacturer and supplier attendees a chance to turn their trip to the event into a relaxing long weekend.

This year the luxury venue for the award ceremony and three course dinner is 8 Northumberland Avenue, which is located only a stone’s throw away from Trafalgar Square in the heart of central London.

The incredible event space features a mixture of classic Victorian architecture and cutting edge technology which is sure to impress guests. 2017’s Catering Insight Awards will begin with a networking cocktail reception in the lively Annex area, followed by the main ceremony and gala dinner in the stunning Old Billiard Room.

Following the main event, the after-party of the year will once again be held at a nearby venue – standby for an announcement soon.

Furthermore, the 2017 Catering Insight Awards will feature a brand new category, the Digital Initiative of the Year. This will honour a distributor, either traditional or online, who has really embraced the digital medium, whether it is for sales service, showcasing their capabilities or an innovative social media campaign.

The full category line-up is as follows:


Service & Support
Light Equipment
Heavy Equipment
Business Development

Distributor of the Year – South of England
Distributor of the Year – North of England

The industry will once more decide on who wins the accolades, with nominations opening later in the year. After the entries have been whittled down to a shortlist, distributors will vote on the supplier category winners and suppliers will decide on the distributor victors.

Many previous sponsors have already signed up to back the third event – details of which will be released shortly.
