Kuits to Headline Sponsor the NRB Top 50 2015

10 Mar 2015

Kuits Solicitors will once again be supporting the NRB Top 50 this year as headline sponsor of the prestigious awards event.

The NRB Top 50 celebrates the best Northern hospitality operators. Taking place at Northern Restaurant & Bar on 17 March, the Top 50 – as chosen by a judging panel – will celebrate their success at making the list and three special winners will be announced at the invitation-only event. There will be canapes from Woodall’s Charcuterie and wine courtesy of Boutinot.

Everyone who makes the Top 50 must be actively working in the hospitality industry and be based in the region (North West, North East, Yorkshire and the Humber). Previous entrants to the Top 50 include chefs, restaurant owners, publicans, hoteliers and bar owners.

The awards form just one part of NRB 2015, the North’s biggest hospitality show, which also comprises the NRB Debate.

Hawksmoor founder Will Beckett will join a renowned panel at the NRB Debate to discuss the art of running restaurants in the North, along with Craig Bancroft and award-winning author Nick Lander, who will offer perspectives on how the lessons in Nick’s award-winning book “The Art of the Restaurateur” apply to the North.

Will Beckett, founder of prestigious steakhouse Hawksmoor and one of the UK’s most respected restaurant operators, has been announced as the final panelist at the NRB Debate – sponsored by MMU – which takes place at the Northern Restaurant & Bar exhibition on March 17th 12-2pm. He will provide a compelling ‘incomer’s’ view of the Northern hospitality industry.

He joins headline speaker Nick Lander, the writer, consultant, restaurateur and author of industry bible ‘The Art of the Restaurateur”, and legendary Northern restaurateur and hotelier Craig Bancroft, who has run Michelin starred Northcote for thirty years. Tickets are £60 (inc. VAT) and include lunch courtesy of Beef and Pudding and wines from Boutinot.

The NRB Debate is the North’s leading paid for hospitality industry talk, and exists to provide a forum for compelling industry insight and discussion for passionate hospitality professionals. Tickets to the NRB Debate are very limited. This will be the first time Nick has spoken publicly about his book in the UK and is a great opportunity to hear from three of the most successful people in UK hospitality.

Limited tickets are still available for the debate. To book yours now, visit:
