Restaurant & Bar Design Awards 2014 judges announced

RABDA judges 2014

Today sees the long-awaited announcement of the judges for the Restaurant and Bar Design Awards 2014.

Now into its sixth year, the Restaurant and Bar Design Awards has grown exponentially across the industry, being the only organisation which specifically celebrates and recognises the work of restaurant and bar design.

This year, they have secured the services of 26 influential design directors, magazine editors, chefs, hoteliers and restaurateurs to judge the entries for the Awards – and they will have their work cut out if there is anything like the quality and volume of entries as in 2013 (almost 700 projects were entered this year). There will also be two new categories to add to the existing ones: Street Food (UK) and Decorative Lighting (UK and International).
