We are very pleased to announce that Green & Fortune picked up two awards in one day last week when Kings Place was awarded ‘Best Conference Venue’ at the London Venue Awards, and our own Emma Williams was named ‘Catering Manager of the Year’ at the prestigious Foodservice Cateys.
The London Venue Awards, which took place during a lunchtime ceremony at Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium, were presented across 15 categories following a rigorous judging process carried out by a panel of over 30 outstanding representatives with expertise from all facets of the industry. Kings Place fought off fierce competition in our category, which included: 8 Northumberland Avenue, Business Design Centre, etc.venues, 155 Bishopsgate, Royal Institute of British Architects and The Mermaid.
The evening’s Foodservice Cateys saw the entire UK foodservice and hospitality industry come together to congratulate businesses and individuals that have had an exceptional year. Described by the judging panel as the ‘beating heart’ of Green & Fortune, Emma’s influence on the business is unfathomable and the award is very well deserved.
Speaking about the awards, CEO John Nugent said: “At Green & Fortune we have always focused on delivering quality at every level, in both product and people. We have an incredible team of professionals who care about all that we do. They are lead superbly by Emma, a passionate and creative force. Secondly, to win an award that takes into account all that a venue does – from its facilities and technology to catering and customer care – is fantastic. We have achieved so much in the last seven years since opening and to be recognised by both the premier awards for London venues and the UK hospitality industry, all in the same day, is very special indeed.”
The award comes after a successful few years for Green & Fortune who have, in the last few years, been recognised as ‘Event Caterer of the Year’ at the 2014 Foodservice Cateys, as well as being named Event Space of the Year and Venue Team of the Year at the 2013 Event Awards.
