Time is running out to guarantee your place at this year’s Baking Industry Awards (BIA) – the place to be seen in the baking industry.

On Wednesday 9 September the cream of the sector will gather at the Hilton on Park Lane, London, to celebrate our industry. Around 800 guests will watch as 11 awards are given out by this year’s host and TV star Claudia Winkleman, including the coveted Baker of the Year award – last year scooped by Mark Bennett of Patisserie Mark Bennett.

There is also the Outstanding Contribution Award, entries for which come from nominations, and everyone will be waiting to find out who is crowned this year.

Aside from the awards, the night presents a perfect opportunity to network with peers, meet new people and keep abreast of the latest in the baking industry. Plenty of entertainment is provided after the three-course meal and awards, with all guests invited to fill the dance floor.

If you want to be there call Elizabeth Ellis on 01293 846593 or email her at elizabeth.ellis@wrbm.com. Tickets cost £268 each or guests can buy a table of 10 for £2,420.

We look forward to seeing you there.
