Caterer Middle East Awards 2022: Every shortlist and nominee revealed

There are 27 categories based on this year’s nominations, with 270 shortlisted people or teams

The shortlisted nominees for the Caterer Middle East Awards 2022 are now revealed.

More than 1,000 nominations were made in 27 categories and, once again, we received a record-shattering number of entries. It’s testament to the incredible pool of talent in the industry and the natural drive for innovation year after year.

With an increased number of nominations and a higher standard of entry, it has been tougher than ever to finalise the shortlists for each category.

However, the Caterer Middle East team has now completed the shortlisting process and the final lists of nominees can be released.

Our panel of expert judges will be looking at each entry in detail to decide who should be crowned winner and highly commended in each category.

Our Editor’s Choice categories are still to be revealed, too.

The ceremony takes place at JW Marriott Marquis Dubai in Business Bay on Wednesday, September 28.

Tickets for the event are on sale now and can be booked by visiting this site or by emailing Kate Galaktionova at Kate.Galaktionova@itp.com or Eleanor Ashton at Eleanor.Ashton@itp.com to make enquiries.
