Winners of the ek&bbusiness Awards revealed

By KBBDaily on 2nd December 2016 - 09:35am

The winners of the first ever ek&bbusiness Awards were revealed last night at a glittering festive ceremony, held at The Brewery in London.

Guests were treated to an 'Elf Reception' upon their arrival at the venue, where they were asked questions by Santa's elves to see if they'd been naughty or nice this year, followed by a festive three-course meal with live entertainment from the It Girls.

Following a Christmas address presented by former chief executive of the KBSA Graham Hayden, comedian Josh Widdicombe entertained the audience, and then presented the 13 winners with their awards with ek&bbusiness editor Emma Hedges, and publisher Darren Summerfield.

"Congratulations to all the well-deserved winners at our first awards, and a huge thank you to all those who came to the event – we were overwhelmed by the industry's massive support," said Emma Hedges. "I think it's safe to say everyone who came had a fantastic time, and we're looking forward to doing it all again this time next year!" she added.

Winners and other guests were also interviewed by KBBDaily.com at the event, so keep your eyes on the website in the coming weeks to look back on a fantastic afternoon and see if you can spot yourself or your colleagues!
