Shortlisted for Catering Insight Award 2017

We are delighted to have been shortlisted for an honor at this year’s Catering Insight Awards ceremony. The particular award for which we have been put forward is new for 2017, the Digital Initiative of the Year category. Sponsored by Hoshizaki, it recognises a distributor who has really embraced the digital medium and pushed the boundaries.

Our work with Virtual Reality is the area that the judges have recognised along with the real word benefits we have been able to offer with the way we have adapted the technology.

Digital Initiative of the Year

Keeping at the cutting edge of technical development has been a key focus for South Yorkshire-based Lloyd Catering Equipment this year. The distributor has developed a new room-scale virtual reality system which is helping its designers and clients to test the functionality and workflow of a design prior to installation. The system uses a combination of movement and headset tracking within an area to accurately simulate moving in the virtual environment, allowing the user to move freely around a design in a natural and intuitive way.
