The Purple Incredibles!

11 Oct

Last Friday the whole team got all dressed up and headed to The Roundhouse in Camden for the 2013 Event Awards. Well we had to put in an appearance as we were up for an award! We were finalists for Caterer of the Year award, it was all very exciting! Considering the company is barely 4 years old we have done pretty well to have been competing against long standing companies like Ampersand, Richmond, Smart hospitality and Absolute Taste. Unfortunately we didn’t win the award; Ampersand came as highly recommended and Smart Hospitality scooped up the award. Well done to them both, hopefully we’ll be back next year to give it another go!

We all had a brilliant night being wined and dined with a live band to dance the night away to as well. It definitely made a change for all of us there, not only the Purple Grape team, but all the attendees at the awards; normally we’re the ones running around putting everything together, making sure everything is going smoothly and all staff are in the right positions.  It was quite a novelty to sit back and enjoy the event as a guest, celebrating with other event professionals and letting our hair down (figuratively speaking of course!).

It’s definitely award year for us as we’re also finalists in the Eventia 2013 awards for Events Services & Logistics Supplier of the Year.  We’re all looking forward to another fun night out with the team and hopefully we will get this one! It’s being held at the Hilton on Park Lane so we’ll have to pull out all the stops with our wardrobe choices!
