LOYA 2016

Could you be the next BII Licensee of the Year?

Nominations are now open for the BII Licensee of the Year 2017!

This prestigious award recognises the best of the best in the licensed trade, and now we’re on a mission to find the next outstanding licensee to take the crown in 2017!

Have you got what it takes? Do you know someone who does?

Licensees can either register themselves or be nominated by a third party; this can be customers, colleagues, pub companies and breweries or even fellow operators. Nominations are very quick and easy to submit, and with the fantastic publicity, prestige, and prizes in store for the victor, it may be the best thing you ever decide to do!
All of the finalists will be awarded trophies at the BII Summer Event on the 13th June 2016, where the Winner will also be crowned.

LOYA 2017 Update

Entries for this year’s LOYA competition are now closed!

We had an overwhelming response, having to extend the deadline by a week due to such a high number of nominations. The judges are now deliberating and deciding on quarter-finalists who will go through to the next stage, which given the quality of entries this year will be no easy task!  Keep a lookout on our website and social media for more information about LOYA 2017.
