We would like to express our gratitude to all our suppliers for their hard work throughout the year. It was a challenging task to select this year’s winners, but after careful consideration, we have chosen some outstanding suppliers.

Without further ado, let’s get straight to the winners!

Office Choice

This award goes to a supplier who everyone in the Poptop office loves working with. A supplier who provides a great service, they’re willing to help and they see the standard for other suppliers on our platform. Tom Piper’s Hog Roast embodies all those qualities, which is why they won this year’s Office Choice award. Let’s take a look at their stats:

David had this to say about winning his award,

“Until we started working with Poptop earlier this year, we would restrict our business to events no more than 30 miles from where we’re based in mid-Cheshire. However, we have now provided Hog Roasts in Essex, Southhampton, Dorchester, York and many other ‘long-distance’ venues. Wedding and party locations are no longer a restriction to us providing the best Hog Roast catering service. And whenever we need assistance from the Poptop team, they are always available to provide the right advice!”

His story of having to find a new career after an unfair dismissal showed not just how much hard work he put into his new career but his passion and determination to succeed!
That’s why I was happy to award him the Most Inspirational award this year out of 30 other suppliers. 
Well done, Christian. You deserve it.”

Best Start-Up

Suppliers had the opportunity to nominate themselves for the award, showcasing their business growth and success in the past three years, both on Poptop and beyond. We read through several nominations that highlighted just how successful some of the businesses are on Poptop. The team was inspired by the accomplishments of Air Of The Dog, as they managed to scale a mobile bar business in such a short period. Let’s check out their stats on Poptop.

Richard has this to say in acceptance of his award,

Thank you for awarding us with the best start-up! The Air Of The Dog is a family-run business and It’s been a real labour of love since we started and to get recognition like this is really rewarding. What started with an inflatable pub in the garden has turned into a nationwide company featuring in many national and international publications. Poptop has given us the platform to reach a wide variety of clients/events and has been instrumental in our success. We would really recommend this to any business.”

Supplier Of The Year

This award goes to a supplier who has truly demonstrated outstanding success in 2023. They set the standard for everyone else, boasting excellent listings, a strong rapport with clients, and a willingness to assist in times of crisis, such as being a last-minute replacement supplier. No one exemplified this more than Party Bus London, which is why we were proud to award them our 2023 Supplier Of The Year Award. Let’s take a look at their stats:

“I would like to say thank you for the support from the Poptop team in helping build our business and helping us make it to another level. Receiving this award from Poptop shows the commitment we provide to making sure the client always has a great time onboard and leaves feeling satisfied. We hope to maintain this into 2024!”

What a year 2023 has been. It makes us so excited to see what 2024 has in store. We’d like to thank all the suppliers for their hard work and let’s make 2024 event better!
