Stockport needed to find a compelling way to showcase the innovation, growth and new product development in the region’s increasingly vibrant food and drink sector. A sector-specific awards event had not been tried before.
We decided on 10 award categories. Our team then garnered support - taking the form of the sponsorship of individual awards - from local businesses. 30 food and drink businesses in the region were shortlisted.
In June 2018, following the region’s first Food & Drink Trade Show, the FoodSync team - partnered by Clarke Nicklin Group - launched Stockport’s inaugural food and drink awards. The visitor centre at Robinson's Brewery made an excellent venue for the event.
AT A GLANCE
We really enjoyed the event and felt it was absolutely worthwhile to take part in. The conversations with the other exhibitors were great for us and we've made some quality contacts through doing just that. You and your team were brilliant and very professional on the day. There was a great atmosphere there and we were proud to be a part of it.
