The 25th edition of the Roeselare Awards will not take place in June, but in September. Moreover, it is not the factory building where the party will start, but the Roeselare Expo.
“In order to allow the party to continue in full splendor and with maximum occupancy, it has been decided to hold a gala evening at the Expohallen in Roeselare on September 10,” says Kris Dewitte of the Awards Organizing Committee. “We are raising the anniversary party after the big holiday is over, and have built a certain amount of certainty with the choice of Expohallen. We have plenty of space in the exhibition halls and we can adjust venue. We can move the tables as far or as close to each other as necessary.” “Of course we are also very satisfied with our cooperation. With Fabriekspand, but we were unable to find a previous date. In addition, we now have the added advantage of being able to welcome a larger number of guests. In fact, 1,000 guests will be able to attend the 25 years of the Roeselare Awards.” “What we already know is that it will be a great party with many elements of show and quality catering. Catering is served by Sander-Jan Beirens and Elien Claeys from Maldegem. These people have gained experience with Sergio Hermann and are used to organizing major events at a high level. Just think of Lotus Bakery Parties. We have every confidence in that.” Three Nominees The three nominees for Personality of the Year awards have also been announced. This award is given to the person or association of Roeselare that has put Roeselare in the spotlight over the past year, in this case 2021.
