Bringing together the very best in the sector, the Publican Awards 2019 will show which pubcos are doing the industry proud and paving the way for others to follow.

The contenders for the Publican Awards 2019 are now under starters orders following the first round of judging.

The first stage has seen a strong line-up of pub companies shortlisted across a wide range of categories after a challenging initial round of judging.

Ed Bedington, editor of The Morning Advertiser​, which organises the awards, said: “The first round of judging has now been completed and we have our shortlist of finalists in the running to take home a leading industry award.

“The initial stages of judging are always challenging, whittling down a shortlist from a strong and impressive range of companies, but our judges have to be brutal and only put through the companies that make the final cut.

“This year has seen some very strong entries across all the categories, and I’m confident this year’s competition is going to be a close fight to the finish.

“The hard work for our judges – and for our finalists – is only just beginning with a number of stages yet to go, so I’d like to congratulate those businesses through, and wish them the best of luck moving forward.”

The Publican Awards, now more than a quarter of a century old, are the leading awards in the pubco sector, recognising and rewarding excellence across a range of areas from business success to employment practices.

Organised in association with Sky, the awards are also sponsored by Heineken UK, Molson Coors, Asahi, Britvic, Carls-berg UK, Coca-Cola European Partners, CPL Online, H-GEM, Kuehne + Nagel, Poppleston Allen and Fentimans.

The results of the competition will be revealed during the biggest event in the industry calendar at Battersea Evolution, London, on March 12, 2019.
