The University of Manchester is celebrating after winning the Innovation and Catering Award at last week’s CUBO (College and university Business Officers) Awards.

The University of Manchester transformed their in-door canteen into a street market where local traders rented space. Sustainability is at the forefront of the street market as traders use recyclable packaging.

The CUBO Awards saw ten organisations recognised for their contribution to driving commercial excellence at universities or colleges across the UK.

Over 200 guests and CUBO members attended the annual Summer Conference at Swansea University. Gillian Almond, director of commercial services for Royal Holloway University of London, said: “The standard of this year’s entries was deeply impressive and proved highly inspirational for our judges. 

"The UK’s universities are seen as some of the best in the world and the role that CUBO members play in driving commercial success and delivering innovative campus services, plays an important part in supporting this reputation.”

Almond paid tribute to Richard McGloin, who recently retired from Sheffield Hallam. He was awarded the CUBO 2019 Lifetime Achievement Award for his tireless work both at Sheffield Hallam.
