Deadline extension for BBPA Industry Awards

The British Beer & Pub Association (BBPA) has extended the deadline for entries into their annual Industry Awards, to be presented at the BBPA Annual Dinner on 12th October.

 

Applications will now be accepted until Tuesday 6th September across four categories, helping to give the awards a fresh look and feel for 2016:

 

  • The Off-trade Retailer Award 2016

o   This award seeks to reward a company which has shown exceptional support to the beer industry throughout its estate.

  • Beer Champion 2016

o   The BBPA Beer Champion Award of 2016 looks to recognise companies that have successfully sought to promote, improve and celebrate beer.

  • Pub Champion 2016 in association with Nestlé Professional

o   The title of Pub Champion 2016 will recognise companies that have worked to secure pubs for future generations. This year the Pub Champion Award is supported by Nestlé Professional and their expertise in food and beverage solutions.

  • BBPA Heart of the Community Award

o   The winner of this award will have demonstrated a commitment to their local community.

 

The BBPA Industry Awards are free to enter, and will be awarded as a result of an application process followed by a decision from a panel of expert judges.

 

For more information on each of the four Award categories, entrants can visit the new, dedicated awards website here.

 

The awards will be presented at the BBPA Annual Dinner 2016, an event that sees the continuation of the BBPA’s partnership with Pub & Bar Magazine that began last year.

 

The BBPA’s Annual Dinner and Awards ceremony, a must-attend event for brewers and the on-trade, takes place on Wednesday 12th October at the Royal Garden Hotel in Kensington.

The Association is more than a century old and was originally founded as the Brewers’ Society in 1904. Our members account for some 90 per cent of beer brewed in Britain today, and own around 20,000 of the nation’s pubs.
