The Mercurys is the most prestigious award in travel catering, worldwide. It is sought after by the best and most pro active companies in the industry.
The 38th edition of The Mercurys will be held alongside SIAL Middle East on 9th December 2019.
The Mercurys Award - recognising and rewarding innovation within the industry started in 1982, two years after the founding of its host event and association, IFCA in the ballroom of the Waldorf Hotel in London – the In-Flight Catering Association.
This award was obtained by SIAL Middle East at this point who understood the relevance and value of an award focused to this niche industry and vowed to continue the tradition of recognising innovation and skill via the SIAL Middle east food show in Abu Dhabi. The first edition of The Mercurys under the stewardship of SIAL Middle East was held at the Shangri-La in Abu Dhabi in 2013 and has become increasingly popular.
With new categories designed to open up new markets for airlines and suppliers, and a new line up of judges headed by completely independent experts, the new Mercurys by SIAL is established as a true and transparent award.
**Entry submission for The Mercurys 2019 will be open in April
