The BMAs are all about supporting the industry, recognising the quality, passion and creativity of the staff that work so hard in venues every day. There’s so much flair that goes unnoticed, and we want to give you your moment to shine and highlight your achievements. With December being such a busy and demanding month for hospitality workers, the BMAs in January 2024 are the perfect opportunity for us all to let our hair down and sink drinks, rather than serve them!

In addition to celebrating your achievements and having a well-deserved night off, the BMAs offer a unique networking opportunity. Attendance to the event will put you in the company of 200+ likeminded hospitality professionals. This provides a fantastic chance to make new connections with peers, who you can discuss ideas and compare business successes with. Tickets are now available through the Bar Magazine website.

Our host for the evening is the amazingly talented Ian Burrell, Global Rum Ambassador and founder of RumFest. Ian’s growth and rise within hospitality is truly inspirational and he shows that with passion for your craft and hard work, the sky really is the limit.
