Dubai, UAE, November 2017: FACT Dubai Magazine hosted its very first annual dining awards on November 20, 2017 at the iconic Hilton Dubai Jumeirah Hotel. A fun and glamorous awards ceremony which heralds the launch of the Dubai edition has been much-anticipated following a popular online public voting campaign. Close to 500 guests were invited.

The who’s who of Dubai’s hospitality industry turned out for the exciting celebration, with top GMs, F&B Directors, Chefs, Marketing and PR professionals, as well as selected Dubai bloggers and social media influencers.

Speaking ahead of the event, Edward Smith, Publishing Director at Nans Group Publishing, said: “We are absolutely delighted to bring our successful regional dining awards to Dubai. With so many excellent venues covering a great number of cuisines, it is time for Dubai’s food lovers and experts to have their say and vote for their favourites.
“The FACT Dining Awards has become a highlight on the hospitality calendar in the region and we hope to replicate the same prestige and popularity in Dubai. We are honoured to be able to recognise and award the efforts of all the hard work that the food and beverage outlets put in to plating up the best dishes every day,” he added. “To coincide with this, we will mark the arrival of a brand new fiercely local lifestyle magazine in Dubai, making sure that FACT is the top choice for food, arts, culture and travel in the Emirates and beyond.”

The FACT Dining Awards recognises excellence in the food and beverage industry, with winners awarded based on both public vote and critics’ opinion. Each category was given two awards, the BEST and the FAVOURITE. The latter is the result of a popular choice decided through online voting, and the former is the critic’s choice decided by an independent panel of food bloggers, the FACT editorial team and industry experts in Dubai.
