Winners of the Cardiff Regional Awards 2018 announced

The Regional Awards in Cardiff 2018 – The biggest and most exciting awards ceremony in South Wales.

The sold-out, prestigious event was held at the Mercure Holland House Hotel on Wednesday 18th April and saw businesses from a wide variety of sectors attend. “This event has the glitz, glamour and styling of some of the top London events” exclaimed Giovanni Malacrino, “Very classy and well done to everyone”.

The Regional Awards recognises outstanding achievement by individuals and businesses. Awards are determined by a mix of public votes, mystery shopping panel and award questionnaire scoring. The event is not owned or operated by any publication or network and offers an independent approach that is transparent without any bias.

One of the highlights of the event was the winner of the Not For Profit Award Dreams & Wishes, who not only scooped the top prize but also received a £1,000 donation from Giovanni with Help4Wales Foundation also receiving £500 for their Highly Commended Award.

Other notable stand out award wins included restaurant of the Year Volare in Caerphilly, Recruitment Agency of the Year Vetro Recruitment and Bar of the Year Mocka Lounge.
