Alongside your colleagues, you’ll be one of 1,400+ guests on the night. The ceremony brings together 100's of teams from both big and small pubcos across the UK, it truly is the biggest gathering of pub people you'll ever find in the same room.

7. Find motivation for the next 12 months
The evening, whether you’re shortlisted or not, is a brilliant one. If you’re attending just to say thanks to a few members of your team for your own achievements, it can be a great way to show them where their hard work can lead!

If you have a team you’re particularly proud of this year, why not bring them along and show them how much you appreciate their hard work? It certainly beats the usual team meal!
