The fourth annual ek&bbusiness awards, held at The Brewery in the City of London, saw the best in the industry gather together for an evening of celebration.


After an introduction by essential kitchen & bathroom business MD Marie Davies, editor Daniel Griffiths and commercial director Darren Summerfield, attendees enjoyed performances from magician Ben Hart and comedian Henning Wehn over a three-course dinner.

Finally, the big moment arrived, as BBC presenter Gethin Jones presented our prestigious awards in 14 categories across the industry.
