Retailers' Retailer Awards
Recognising and rewarding the UK's eating & drinking-out industry's branded players
Described as the UK's eating and drinking-out sector's "Oscars" and the event that is in every leading operator's diary, this year's Retailers' Retailer of the Year Awards took place on the 2nd March 2016. Due to increased demand for places, this year's event moved to The Guildhall in the City. The awards, in their 17th year, are unique in that they are the only ones voted for by senior executives from the industry itself. They are, therefore, a true reflection of what the market thinks, identifying the best companies, concepts and individuals.
The Retailers' Retailer Awards recognise the best companies, concepts and individuals in the pub, late-night bar and restaurant market. This year's winners included Itsu, Deliveroo, Azzurri Group, Fuller's, Nando's, The NEw World Trading Company, The Breakfast Club, Greene King and Steve Richards, who collected the top award, the Retailers' Retailer 2016.
Following in the footsteps of past speakers , including Sir Matthew Pinsent, Nick Leeson, Andrew Neil, John Lloyd and Baroness Eliza Manningham-Buller, this year's guest speaker and presenter was Sir Ranulph Fiennes, who is described by The Guinness Book of Records as "the world's greatest living explorer".
