The Publican Awards 2014 – a winning night for Zonal customers

2nd April 2014.

On 25th March, the Publican’s Morning Advertiser, in association with Sky, hosted the Publican Awards 2014 at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel. As always it was the highlight of the pub industry’s calendar, with over 1,400 people in attendance.

It truly was an evening of entertainment. Host, comedian John Bishop was joined on stage by Keith Lemon of Celebrity Juice fame, as well as stars from the cult TV show ‘The Only Way is Essex’ and the super talented electronic quartet, Escala.

The Publican Awards recognise the achievements of top pub companies and individuals across 18 categories. In order to reach their decisions, the judges carried out mystery outlet inspections, HQ visits, pub tenant interviews by market researchers and finally a full day of panel interviews conducted by industry experts, city analysts and journalists.

After such a rigorous and possibly onerous judging process the winners were very deserving of their awards and we are proud to reveal that of the 18 winners, 8 were Zonal customers, with a further 5 being highly commended!

Stuart McLean, CEO at Zonal said of the event;

“The Publican Awards was a brilliant night enjoyed by all. I would like to say congratulations to all those who won an award on the evening, in particular our award winning Zonal customers all of whom were deserved winners!”

Chris Albutt, Director of Web and Mobile Solutions, added;

“At such a prestigious event, it was fantastic to see our friends at Luminar receive an award for best late night operator and achieve a highly commended for the My UKCN mobile app. The app has enabled TXD and Zonal to deliver a fully bespoke solution and push the boundaries of mobile based ordering in the late night sector allowing clubbers to select and pay for drinks on their own iPhone. The success of their app bears testament to the shared vision Luminar, TXD and Zonal have in delivering a fully integrated and connected customer journey.”

Other Zonal customers who were celebrating on the night included Young’s and Oakman Inns who were double winners as well as Whiting & Hammond, Fuller’s and The Orchid Group who were all highly commended.

We would like to offer our congratulations to all our successful customers long may our winning partnerships continue!
