We're thrilled to announce that as part of Arena’s new initiative to Engage, Educate and Inspire younger members whilst at the same time encouraging them to enjoy the benefits of networking, we are delighted to be partnering with Kraft Heinz in launching a new competition - 57 Hospitality Heroes.
This new initiative recognises foodservice and hospitality industry professionals under 30 who go above and beyond their job role giving something back to the industry in their spare time.
Individuals working within the foodservice and hospitality industry can nominate others who work in the industry who will be aged under 30 on Tuesday 1 October 2019. Entries are welcome from all types of businesses including food manufacturing, wholesalers, contract caterers, pub, hotel restaurant operators, PR, recruitment and catering equipment. The competition is FREE TO ENTER.
In a nod to the famous Heinz 57 advertising campaign, judges will announce a shortlist of 57 Hospitality Heroes who will be invited to a drink’s reception at Kraft Heinz offices in The Shard on the evening of Friday 19 July 2019 – immediately after Arena’s Summer event. From these 57, three finalists will be chosen by an independent judging panel and invited to the Arena Autumn event on Monday 30 September 2019, where the winner will be announced.
The winner will be invited to sit on the Arena Board for 12 months and receive tickets to Arena networking events throughout the year. Each finalist’s initiative will also receive a donation on their behalf.
So, if you have someone in your business or someone in the industry you know who has gone ‘the extra mile’ outside of their day to day role we want to hear from you. CLICK HERE TO ENTER.
The deadline for nominations is 5pm on Friday 21 June 2019.
We look forward to receiving your nominations!
