Over 180 people, spanning 29 teams, from the catering and hospitality industry took part with a broad mix of food service companies, consultants, suppliers and recruitment companies providing an opportunity to do what ACE does best â€“ mix and mingle with
Quiz rounds included diverse subjects such as the Coronation, travel, food and France. Berkeley Scott and The Smart Group tied in the runner up position.
ACE Chair, Sarah Prentice said: â€œThe annual ACE Quiz Night is the perfect opportunity to bring people together from across the hospitality industry. So much pre-planning and organising goes into this event from our ACE council, but we all enjoy getting together, meeting up with old friends and making new connections. The competitive element always adds an extra level of fun.â€
The raffle held for the Spirit of Hospitality Tallisker Row across the Atlantic in aid of Hospitality Action raised nearly Â£2,000.
The next ACE event will be the Summer Party on Tuesday 11th July which will take place at the Blue Fin Building, London and
will include the ACE Robyns Awards Presentation sponsored by Troika.
The ACE Robyns Award is now a firm fixture in the calendar. It was created in 2016 by the ACE committee in memory of Robyn Jones OBE, founder of CH&Co, who sadly died in September 2015. Robyn was known for her tireless work in the mentoring, training and development of young talent. This award puts the spotlight on the next generation of the industry, something Robyn was always at the forefront of.
