Public Sector Catering Awards postponed until September

The Public Sector Catering Awards night on April 16th has been officially postponed until Tuesday, September 15th.

The venue – London Hilton Metropole in Edgware Road – remains the same.

Andrew Archer, managing director of Dewberry Redpoint, which organises the annual catering industry event, said: “We are disappointed to have to make this decision, and obviously very sorry for the inconvenience involved to everyone.

“But clearly the impact of the Corona virus is only going to increase over the weeks ahead and we feel this is the responsible thing to do.

“The growing risk to elderly and other vulnerable people attending a crowded event like our awards night, not to mention the likely travel disruption we could face at that time, have made this a relatively simple decision in the end.

“We now look forward to meeting up for our annual celebration of all that is good in public sector catering in what we hope will be the much greater safety of mid-September.”


The Public Sector Catering Awards - the new name for the Cost Sector Catering Awards, have been rebranded for 2020 to better reflect the sector we operate in.

The awards are open to individuals, teams, companies and organisations including contract caterers operating in a public sector environment.

Entries are now closes.  The shortlist has been revealed.

The Public Sector Catering Awards 2020 will take place on Tuesday 15 September at the Hilton London Metropole and will bring together more than 600 industry colleagues to celebrate the winners and pay tribute to all shortlisted nominees.
