The Encore Catalogue Group enjoyed a very special launch event earlier this month on the Great Central Railway in the Charnwood Forest, Leicestershire.

A beautiful day helped those playing golf at Lingdale and a nice friendly round was won by Aidan Brown from YOB Golf.

The Group then went by coach to the Great Central Railway in Loughborough where a brass band playing greeted guests  to enjoy champagne and canapes on the platform before boarding a beautiful steam train where dinner was served with entertainment by Up and at em History.

Each station along the route is themed in a different era and the awards for the 2015/16 campaign were presented at Rothley station – an Edwardian station lit by gas lamps.

The winners of the awards this year were:

Distributor of the Year – Hype Branding

Runner Up – Bourne International

Third – Formkraft

Supplier of the Year – Senator Pens

Runner Up – Booth Brothers

Third – The Pen Warehouse

A very enjoyable evening was had by all and the customary retiring to the hotel bar ended a perfect evening.
