Culinary Competitions

We specialise in organising culinary competitions and events across the UK. From organising entries and high profile judges with some of the UK’s top restaurant celebrity chefs, to simple eight work-station culinary theatres, we can make your competition happen.

We can help you devise the entry form and market the competition through to organising the food/drink judges, onsite tasting days, prizes and managing the event itself on the day.

If a culinary, food or cooking competition fits with your promotional plans, why not contact us?

At McCullough Moore, we do everything in our power to ensure our clients’ competition events are a complete success. The fact that we have been able to accomplish this consistently over the years is no fluke. Rather, it’s thanks to our years of expertise and commitment of our staff in bringing the vision of our clients to life. As a UK Event Planning and Management company, this is what we are known for and what you can expect us to deliver.

Our expertise in organising competitions and events across the UK is completely at your disposal, whenever you need it. Once you make clear your vision for the competition, you can trust us to promptly get to work organising entries, the venue and judges. If you prefer, we can make arrangements for high-profile judges or celebrity chefs to participate in your event. If what you are after is something simpler, like an eight work-station culinary theatre, McCullough Moore has still got you covered.

We have managed to make a name for ourselves as a first-class enterprise that’s capable of delivering world class Event Management services. Our services come highly recommended and we promise that we can make your competition event a positively memorable one, whether it’s a food, culinary, cooking, or any other type of competition.

Managing your competition event

Our goal at McCullough Moore is to make your competition event as hassle free as possible for you, but wholly enjoyable for your attendees. We can accomplish this with ease, because Event Management is what we do and very few others can claim to do it better. If you want an attentive Event Management company, with the creativity and competence to deliver a memorable competition that will promote your organisation, we are the experts you need to talk to.

If you intend on hosting a small competition with few attendees – or a big one with lots of attendees, that might be shown on television, McCullough Moore can deliver just what you need.

With McCullough Moore, you aren’t limited to choosing between an extravagantly-styled event and a conservative one. We can help you set up a competition event that’s everything in between or that goes beyond the norm. Whatever your choice, be assured that you and your attendees will find the entire occasion to be an impressive one, from start to finish.

Aside from considering the nature of the competition itself, we can also plan your event effectively by considering the type of attendees that will be present. If you expect to have lots of VIPs present, we can help put everything in place to turn your event into a stand-out one.

All our experts need is your brief and vision of how you’d like your competition event to occur. We will combine our expertise with your vision to deliver results that will fully justify your trust in McCullough Moore.

High value competition planning and management services

We will accomplish this through careful planning and working with suppliers to get the best prices on everything needed to properly stage your competition. By cutting costs from the supplier end of things, we can deliver bespoke services at bespoke prices.

Even though we will be delivering our services at competitive prices, you need not worry about quality being compromised at any point. Working with McCullough Moore simply guarantees that you will have access to high-quality Event Management services at best value.

Contact us today on +44 1293 851869 to discuss your budget and we will tell you how we can best organise and maintain your competition vent, from conception to completion, without exceeding the budget you have in mind.

Hold your competition at some of the choicest venues

If you are hoping for your competition to be truly memorable, one way we can effectively help you accomplish this is by hosting it in a memorable venue. We can organise a spectacular venue for you, here in the UK or abroad, in the US, as well as in scenic locations in Europe.

McCullough Moore has connections with hotel chains, stadiums and exhibition venues all around the world, and can organise for your competition to take place at any of these locations. But your choice of competition location isn’t limited to the indoors, as we can also arrange one outdoors, where your attendees can enjoy the freshness and beauty of nature alongside your event.

Venue choices are available at various prices, but we can get you the best deals due to our relationship with the venue owners. No matter how large, diverse or few your attendees will be, we can arrange the ideal venue to host all of them comfortably, as well as the participants of your competition.

  • "As a judge, this was the best experience I have had, and I have judged many awards. The organisation was brilliant. Nothing was forgotten and everything went like clockwork. I found the personal contact with the organisers very good too. As for the food products, as judges we saw and tasted them at their best. This is vitally important for all the producers who have taken the time and trouble to submit their entries. Well done to the entire team!"
