The Sports & Leisure Catering Awards return for 2019, aiming to reward the very best event and attraction caterers from across the UK, and now is your chance to enter.
Once again SLC Magazine is searching across the UK to find those sports and leisure caterers taking food and beverage to new heights in what is an extremely fast-paced and inventive industry.
There are nine categories including the new Leisure and Facility Caterer of the Year award. Last year, we had innovative entries including robotic waiters serving up drinks at the bar to virtual kitchens, beer made out of recycled bread and stadia going completely cashless. Meanwhile, celebrity chefs have been taking up residence in art galleries and Michelin maestros ever more making inroads into sporting spectacles.
Entries were from venues including football stadia, theatres, palaces, museums, National Trust properties and golf clubs, which have shown amazing levels of quality across their food, service and delivery and we are encouraging similar interest.
The 2019 Sports & Leisure Catering Awards will recognise the innovation and distinction being shown by the nominees and validate just how vital we believe the food and drink at sports events and leisure attractions has become in the last few years.
Taking home an award that recognises the dedication to catering excellence is the perfect way to celebrate the high levels of food and beverage management that exists across the UK’s top attractions.
The awards ceremony will be held for the first time at 30 Euston Square in London on Wednesday, 11 September and the ceremony will be hosted by television presenter and personality Mark Durden-Smith.
On the night, guests will be treated to delicious canapés and drinks in association with our sponsors as well as having the opportunity to network with some of the best sports and leisure caterers in the UK.
So, the time has come to nominate or enter yourself for these prestigious awards. It is free of charge and you can enter into as many categories as you see fit.
