Content Producer/Coordinator - World's 50 Best Restaurants Posted 25.01.2017

Role overview

The World’s 50 Best Restaurants awards, now in their 16th year, is recognised around the world as the most credible indicator of the best places to eat on Earth. It stimulates fervent debate and sometimes controversy, but the excitement it generates amongst those who aspire to make the list, and the massive interest it brings to the restaurant industry in general, has seen it grow into three eagerly anticipated, internationally influential events attended by at least 45 out of the 50 listed Chefs.   The series of events are sponsored by some of the most recognisable brands in the world.

In 2016 we hosted awards ceremonies in Bangkok, New York and Mexico City.  2017 sees us return to Bangkok and run further events in Australia and Colombia. 2017 also sees us take ownership of, and run, The World’s 50 Best Bars awards, scheduled for London in October.
