Sopwell House, in St Albans, was host to the inaugural Hertfordshire Life Food and Drinks Awards in November. Why is this news for the conference and events indusrty venue suppliers and organisers?
We are all surely aware that there is a growing “awards culture and industry” in this country, this food and drink industry award is a first for Hertfordshire but is one of many award lunches and dinners which continue to populate the event industry calendar throughout the UK.
Choosing the right national or local event for your venue can be really helpful for the bottom line, not only by driving vital banqueting sales but through creating awareness of your property within the local community.
This particular new event was sponsored by Hertfordshire Life, a high-end quality magazine which showcases all that Hertfordshire has to offer; by hosting an event such as this any venue, the example here being Sopwell House, can bring its presence to the fore amongst the local business community – with the potential of making it a “first choice” destination for award events.
At this year’s inaugural Hertfordshire Life Food and Drink Awards many local suppliers were finalists and winners demonstrating the opportunities and availability of locally sourced produce, click here to find out more about the Hertfordshire Life Food & Drink Awards.
