Pentland becomes first ever sponsor of Catering Insight Awards drinks reception


Pentland Wholesale has become the first ever sponsor for the drinks reception ahead of this year’s main Catering Insight Awards ceremony, 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, beginning with an hour’s drinks reception backed by Pentland.

Marketing manager Suwen He detailed: “This year Pentland Wholesale is celebrating 25 years of business in the refrigeration and catering industry, so to celebrate this landmark in our company history we decided to highlight it by sponsoring the drinks reception.

“The Catering Insight Awards is a prestigious event in the industry calendar and we wanted to do something special to remember our 25th anniversary.”

She praised the initiative behind the event, commenting: “The awards are an opportunity to properly recognise the hard work companies and individuals have put into their industry throughout the year. Hospitality contributes massively to the economy in general so it’s important we have chance to recognise those of us who in spite of being in the background allow this important part of the UK’s economy to flourish.

“There are many events throughout the year where meeting and networking is available in a formal setting, however, this is an opportunity to see how different businesses are developing and moving forward with regards to future trends and legislation in a less formal atmosphere.”

She concluded: “We look forward to meeting old friends and new at the awards evening and individually I’m sure most will be looking forward to ending the year in real style with a bash at a great venue!

“It’s also a chance for us to highlight the recent acquisitions of Catering Equipment Professional and The Canopy Company. Pentland Wholesale now has a group of businesses with the same B2B route to market that perfectly complement each other and ultimately offer a full range of products that appeal to most companies; we feel it’s a great opportunity to introduce our new organisation.”

15 award categories celebrate both distributor and supplier success and are uniquely voted for by the industry itself, with distributors voting on the supplier accolades and suppliers choosing the dealer winners.
