When the prestigious Festival Supplier Awards headed back to the Hurlingham Club in London on Thursday 27th January 2022, Qdos Event Hire was thrilled to be crowned Best Supplier and scoop one of the most hotly contested awards of the night.

It was the first time that the outdoor event community had gathered socially in almost two years. With 22 awards up for grabs, all recognising the hard work and dedication of outdoor event suppliers after an incredibly difficult period for the industry, it was a significant milestone in the industry’s recovery.

Comments from the judging panel included: “Qdos clearly has the ability to respond efficiently to a detailed client brief even in the most challenging of circumstances. And, delivering at scale during the pandemic in challenging circumstances will have provided immeasurable value to our industry this year.”

Qdos’ managing director, James Thomas added: “I’m always so proud of the Qdos Event Hire team and everyone’s continued dedication, hard work and effort in doing the best job they possibly can. For us to go and win the Best Supplier award at the Festival Supplier Awards 2022 was simply incredible and very humbling considering the quality of the other nominees in that category.

“It’s been one crazy roller-coaster over the last two years and I’m so pleased the team have been recognised in this way for all that has been achieved. Thanks must go out to the wider Qdos family of supply partners, hauliers and crew who are also part of this and assist us in delivering for our clients. This is a fantastic springboard for us to bounce into 2022 and I couldn’t be more excited for the event season ahead.”

Qdos was also a finalist in the Best Toilets and Waste Management and Best VIP/ Backstage Supplier categories.
