Our mission is to put bums on seats and pride in teams across the country, and with this in mind, we've adapted the awards to ensure they're even more beneficial for the pubs that enter. This year’s event will follow a new hybrid event format, which comprises of two elements: the former, which will be a livestream awards reveal open and free for all to watch, and the latter stage, the overall GBPA winners event.

Securing a place as a finalist in these awards is a great opportunity to raise the profile of your business, opening the door to new customers and opportunities. With last year's awards generating 239 million opportunities to see via press coverage, winning can take your business to another level. Here’s a reminder of the benefits of entering:

  • Boost your business and attract new customers
  • Showcase your achievements
  • Boost your team’s morale by recognising their contribution
  • Generate excellent national and local PR for your pub
  • Attract new suppliers
