Tonight’s the Night

….and we couldn’t be more excited. We’re looking forward to welcoming you all this evening to the Park Plaza, Westminster Bridge in the heart of London for the 2017 People Awards.

Join your host, the hilarious Katherine Ryan and 500 fellow industry professionals as we raise a glass to the very best initiatives in hospitality recruitment, retention and development.

Proceedings kick off with our drinks reception at 6.30pm where you can mingle and network to your heart’s content before dinner is served at 7.30pm. You’ll be treated to a delicious three course meal featuring delights such as a poached salmon, goat’s cheese parcel with young leaves and artichoke, spiced herbed chicken with sun blushed tomatoes and cucumber. Main courses will include chargrilled yellow and green courgette parcel filled with ratatouille, with red & yellow peppers, pesto risotto, herb oil & balsamic glaze, while dessert promises a Yuzu and lemon tart, fresh raspberry, Italian rose meringue and an exotic coulis.

At 9.15pm, the tension racks up as the awards ceremony begins and we find out just who has won this year’s coveted awards. Each category highlights the hard work and dedication demonstrated by employers across the sector. This year’s shortlisted companies include Living Ventures, YO! Sushi, The Doyle Collection, Jumeirah London, Byron Hamburgers, LEON Restaurants Ltd. and Village Hotels.

After the ceremony, the bar will remain open and we expect to see all of you on the dancefloor as DJ Fabrizia takes you into the early hours.

Our awards are now in their seventh year. Over 150 companies representing over 213,000 employees entered the awards this year and there are 51 fantastic shortlisted entrants and, of course, 13 very deserving winners. We cannot wait to see you tonight to celebrate your hard work and achievements.

Get tweeting now @Catererdotcom #PeopleAwards17 and don’t forget that our Twitter wall will be in full effect all evening, so make sure photos of you and your table are up there.
