The winners of the ek&bbusiness Awards 2018 were unveiled yesterday afternoon at the third annual edition of the prestigious event, which took place at The Brewery in London and featured copious amounts of champagne, delicious food and amazing entertainment.

Guests were treated to a champagne reception, sponsored by Rotpunkt UK, upon arrival. Our host Clive Tyldesley – ITV's chief football commentator – then took to the stage to kick off the rest of the afternoon, and former KBSA CEO Graham Hayden gave the industry Review of the Year.

A delicious three-course meal was then brought out to the awards’ 500 guests, interspersed with fantastic entertainment from pop violin trio Ember Trio, dance act Frobacks and top comedian Ed Byrne.

Finally, Tyldesley was joined on stage by ek&bbusiness publisher Darren Summerfield and editor Leigh-Anne Roberts to present the award winners with their trophies, before guests were treated to an outstanding performance to round off the afternoon by Britain's Got Talent semi-finalist Sarah Ikumu.

“Congratulations to all of our winners!" said ek&bbusiness editor Leigh-Anne Roberts. "The quality of entries this year was phenomenal and made a hard task for myself and the judges. I’d like to thank all of our guests and the sponsors for creating such an energetic and enjoyable atmosphere."
