Pubs of Ulster has embarked on its annual search to find the best in the business but this year however entrants will see some new and exciting changes to the awards as Pubs of Ulster unveils new categories, a new entry process and a brand new luxury venue for the gala awards night on 13th November.
 
The 2013 Pub of the Year Awards features eight categories designed to highlight the very best that the industry has to offer. This year’s award categories are: Best Barperson (in partnership with the Sunday Life); Best Entertainment; Best Food; Best New or Improved; Best Marketing Initiative; Best Charity Initiative; Best Big Idea and the ultimate award – Pub of the Year 2013. This year the awards have been refined with the removal of the initial round of regional heats to ensure the very best compete one-on-one across Northern Ireland.
 
Also this will be the first year that all award entries can be completed and submitted online making it even easier for pubs right across Northern Ireland to get involved.
 
Commenting on the new look Pub of the Year Awards 2013 the Chairman of Pubs of Ulster Mark Stewart said, “We can’t forget the significant contribution the pub trade makes in terms of the local economy, jobs and tourism.
 
“Just like the industry itself, we also understand how important it is to keep evolving and improving.  That’s why this year we have introduced a number of exciting changes that we hope will make this year’s awards bigger and better than ever before.  I would encourage all licensees to get involved and help us make the Pub of the Year Awards 2013 the best yet.”
 
As well as new categories and new entry process, this year’s awards will also see another change as the Pub of the Year Gala Awards night moves to the 4-Star La Mon Hotel and Country Club on the 13th November this year.
 
The Pub of the Year Awards are the only industry-recognised awards, sponsored this year by Britvic, Coca-Cola, Diageo, Dillon Bass, Heineken Northern Ireland, Molson Coors, Richmond Marketing, Tennent’s NI, Drinks Inc and the Belfast Distillery Company.
