Tickets for this year’s Scottish Bar & Pub Awards on 7th of September at Glasgow’s Cranside Kitchen and Radisson Red are selling like hot cakes but numbers are limited so book today by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
It’s an inside/outside awards with a festival flavour and you’ll be able to see all the finalists in each category in your August DRAM, out shortly.
We also pushed the envelope at last year’s awards by hosting a virtual hybrid event and we were so glad we did it and visited you all with your awards – as were all of the winners!
Here’s what some of our 2020 winners had to say about the night.
Said winner of DRAM Inspirational Woman of the Year, Signature Pubs’ Louise Maclean, ” I thought the whole event was pretty cutting edge technology-wise and probably the best virtual event I have been to in 2020.”
Marco Sarao owner of The Auldhouse in East Kilbride, winner of BII Customer Service award said, ” I’ve got to take my hat off to Susan – she’s an Iron Lady and this event raised spirits and honoured everybody – even our customers on Facebook were saying it was fantastic. ”
Open Ear Lionheart of the Industry award winner Donald Macleod said, “It was brilliant all things considered during these strange times we’re living in and well done to Susan and the whole DRAM team. It felt good for the trade to be able to get together. I was so pleasantly surprised to get my award in person – it’s not often that my family is able to keep anything from me but they managed it this time.”
Alison Blair owner/director of Buzzworks Holdings – winner of Independent Pub Group said, “Hats off to Susan for doing she did and total respect for doing a virtual ceremony because this is not an easy thing to pull off. I know how much hard work goes into live events..”
It seems only right with everyone having to adapt that we too adapt the awards for this year, to recognise that many people will not feel comfortable in a formal environment.
But that doesn’t mean to say you can’t put your glad rags on, just that it will be accessible to everyone, and many thanks to all our sponsors too of course.
See you all on the 7th!
