Not satisfied with being the preferred partner for Surrey Life and managing their prestigious Food & Drinks awards ceremony, Mascol were also hand-picked over all event companies Sussex has to offer to deliver our home counties Sussex Life Awards.
In a fabulous awards ceremony on Thursday 1 October 2015, guests gathered at the Hilton Brighton Metropole to celebrate the region’s food, drink and hospitality industry.
The Celebration of Sussex Life Awards champions, highlights and ‘showcases’ our outstanding food, drink and hospitality industry within Sussex.
From local producers and suppliers to small farming businesses, restaurants, chefs, pubs and hoteliers, all those shortlisted for awards care about the countryside and the future of our region.
All companies featured were nominated by Sussex Life readers before being visited or interviewed to determine a worthy winner by a panel of high-profile judges…
The 16 Award Categories encompass areas such as Pub of the Year, Chef of the Year, Services to the Community, Independent Retailer & Butcher of the Year.
The handpicked panel of judges (all of whom live and work in East or West Sussex) select the shortlist. This then starts the independent judging process of three finalists being selected for each category.
All finalists are then invited to the awards ceremony at the Hilton Brighton Metropole, which includes a Champagne reception, three-course meal and the awards themselves.
Event companies Sussex: Mascol Events
Mascol filmed and produced a video short of 30-40 seconds for each finalist, which was then shown at the awards prior to the winner being announced.
Each ‘short’ showcased why the nominees had been voted for – and included an interview with the owner or manager of the corresponding business.
Filming took place with our Canon 1DX SLR camera – utilising Tascam sound recording kit and Sennheiser Radio Lapel Mic’s … And for the awards evening itself, we relayed the video shorts using two 10 x 7’6 LCD screens back dropped with LED Star Cloths for a bespoke sparkle…
Jenny Mark-Bell (Sussex Life’s Editor) was quoted as saying…
“We were so thrilled with the 2014 awards. The venue was packed with more than 200 people and the atmosphere was electric. Our winners and finalists made it very special. I am very excited about the 2015 awards which will be even bigger and better!”
