It’s Back! #MFDHA18

It’s back!….. the prestigious awards ceremony celebrating the best in the food, drink and hospitality industry – MIDLANDS FOOD DRINK & HOSPITALITY AWARDS 2018, now in it’s third year it is gearing up to be the biggest celebration ever.

The event will take place this year again at the magnificent Edgbaston cricket stadium on 25th June 2018.

With Pepsi Max as headline sponsor for the third year running the event promises to be spectacular, capturing the vibrant industry which is full of flair, charisma and the most hard-working people in any industry.

The MFDH Awards aims to recognise and reward all the amazing attractions from bars to restaurants to cafes and more which are pushing the envelope through first rate menus, creative settings and stellar service.

Given that it’s one of the most culturally rich regions in England, it’s only natural for the food, drink and hotels of the Midlands to be as equally diverse and unique. In fact, it is the success of our thriving food, drink and hospitality establishments in some of the places like Birmingham, Wolverhampton, Leicester, Coventry and Nottingham that has helped to make the Midlands the great place that it is!

The awards will be judged by 5 independent judges who have direct knowledge and experience of the Food, drink & hospitality industries. There is an additional process of a public vote which will also be considered in the final decision making by the judges.

….But, first of all we need your nominations, so get nominating now, visit our website www.mfdhawards.co.uk and nominate your favourite, or if you are part of the industry and believe you deserve to be nominated then you can nominate yourself.

Closing date for nominations is Monday 23rd April 2018, but don’t leave until the last minute!

We’d like to thank our diamond sponsor NFU Mutual, and our supporting sponsors Pathway Group and Britvic for their continued support. We especially thank our headline sponsor Pepsi Max for their support for the third year in a row.

We look forward to receiving the nominations……… Good luck!
