Bigger venue for kbbreview Retail & Design Awards as demand for seats soars

The kbbreview Retail & Design Awards has a brand new venue thanks to an overwhelming industry demand for seats and tables.

The event, which will still take place on September 15, will now be held in the spectacular and iconic Liverpool Anglican Cathedral, one of the UK’s most recognisable landmarks.

The previous venue sold out within hours of the event being announced and in the weeks that followed the waiting list grew and grew.

“When we finally decided to move the date to September and hold the full real, live awards event, we had no idea what the response of the industry would be,” said kbbreview managing editor Andrew Davies.

“The cathedral was our first choice, as it is just such an astonishing place, but it holds a LOT of people. So we erred on the side of caution and went for the smaller venue. But after we announced it, it became very clear, very quickly, that we should have gone with Plan A!”

The new venue opens up the opportunity for more people to book seats and tables who may have been disappointed when the previous location sold out so quickly.

“This is the biggest post-lockdown industry party and now it’s got even bigger,” Davies said. “We want to see as many people there as possible celebrating the creativity and ingenuity that got us all through the lockdowns. But, even though our capacity is bigger, it’s not unlimited, so get in quick to make sure you don’t miss out again!”

Single seats are £279 (+VAT) and tables of 10 are £2,575 (+VAT). If you want to book, please email [email protected]
