Nottingham Restaurant & Bar Awards 2018 - The Winners!

Last night, the first ever Nottingham Restaurant & Bar Awards took place and were a much-celebrated success.

Held at Colwick Hall, the glamorous ceremony was hosted by TV personality Mark Durden-Smith and welcomed an impressive 350 guests, including the award sponsors and the cream of the restaurant and hospitality industry crop.

As title sponsors, we have worked tirelessly for over a year to support the Nottingham Restaurant & Bar Awards. We developed the brand, created the website and did the social marketing – just to name a few! You can read more about our collaboration with the NR&BA here.

Chris Robinson, the Managing Director here at Adtrak, said:

“Adtrak are the perfect fit for headline sponsors. Our skills and expertise lie in digital marketing, so we’ve been able to create, and will continue to build, the digital marketing platforms and exposure that will ensure our restaurants, bars and pubs reach ever-widening audiences. It’s a pleasure to be involved in sponsoring these awards and, more importantly, supporting the local economy through this initiative.”
