Friday November 20, 2020 will be an unforgettable day for the Winners, High Commendations and Finalists of the Care Sector Supplier Awards.

Because of the ongoing need to act responsibly during Covid-19 we are developing two plans in parallel and will make a final decision no later than September 30 as to which plan we adopt.

In this first year for the Awards, if we are able to hold a physical event, the Royal Garden Hotel, Kensington is a socially safe and suitable London venue for the lunch and ceremony and has been chosen for the quality of food, with the three-course lunch provided truly something to look forward to eagerly. If, on the other hand, Covid-19 restrictions are tightened, we are preparing to run an online presentation with the Awards ceremony streamed on the Web.

Whichever route we choose, we will be pleased to accept reservations. Whether you wish to book places for a physical event, or participate as a company in the online presentation, we have adopted a simple reservation deposit system to secure your places. Each company booking will be asked to make a deposit of £300.00 plus VAT. If we run the online presentation then there will be no further fee to pay. If we run a physical event, the deposit is the equivalent of having two places at the Awards and you will be asked if you wish to buy more places once we finalise our plans on September 30.

If we choose the online route, the presentation will begin at 13.00 prompt and you will have access to a link that will allow you to invite colleagues to watch the video stream.

If we choose the physical event route, the following arrangements will apply:

The Reception will begin at 12.00 and lunch will be served from 13.00 in the Palace Suite. Because of the social distancing needs numbers are limited and a maximum of 120-140 people will be able to attend, so it will pay to make your reservation early.

The full menu will be published on this page together with any vegetarian alternatives as soon as they are agreed. Wines will be served with dinner, with mineral waters. Beers and soft drinks may also be available.

Everyone attending will be asked if they have any special dietary requirements in advance of the event so that Chef can cater for all.

The Awards will be presented after dinner during a ceremony hosted by a professional presenter that is expected to last no more than 60 minutes. Both category Winners and High Commendation recipients will go on stage to receive their awards. Photographs of each recipient will be taken and made available online on the morning following the Awards, if not sooner.
