The third annual NRB Top 50 awards, which are announced live at Northern Restaurant & Bar, are open for entries.
The awards recognise and honour 50 individuals from influential hospitality operators based in the north of England. Entries for this year’s NRB Top 50 line-up will be chosen by a panel of experts from the Russell Partnership who, as well as judging entries, will also scour the region researching the industry’s stars. Those selected will be chosen based on their successes, achievements and their impact on the northern hospitality industry.
Anyone wishing to enter or nominate a colleague or client for this year’s awards, simply needs to complete a registration form online at www.northernrestaurantandbar.co.uk/nrb50 by the closing deadline of Friday 17 January 2014.
This year’s awards are sponsored by Kuits Solicitors and organised in association with The Russell Partnership, an international hospitality consultancy.
Speaking about the show’s prestigious powerlist, Thom Hetherington, Northern Restaurant & Bar’s managing director, said:
“The NRB Top 50 is all about celebrating these inspiring individuals who have each made a significant impact in their businesses whilst driving commercial and critical success, creating employment, training and investment, and creating profile and prestige for the region and its hospitality sector.”
Now in its 13th year, NRB is the North’s leading hospitality trade show and will take place at Manchester Central on 18 and 19 March. The 2014 show will again be bigger than last year, with 200 exhibitors and 6,000 visitors expected over two days. The trade-only showcase will welcome exhibitors and visitors including restaurateurs, hoteliers, publicans, chefs, deli owners and bartenders from across the north of England.
