Oceanic will promote BigDish via various marketing channels to more than 3,500 restaurants that receive nominations for awards and to the thousands of people that nominate restaurants for awards.
BigDish will also receive introductions to finalists during the period leading up to each event, which is expected to lead to more restaurants signing up to the platform.
BigDish will also be the exclusive restaurant booking platform sponsor at each event.
Sanj Naha, the chief executive officer of BigDish, added that the first restaurant group to try out the BigDish service will soon go live with the service.
“Group restaurants typically start with a single location trial with a view to progressing to the pilot project phase followed by a full roll-out should the pilot phase be successful,” Naha said.
"The partnership with Oceanic Media will support our national roll-out with the introduction of thousands of great restaurants across the country to BigDish. This will raise the profile of BigDish across the restaurant industry throughout the United Kingdom, which will, in turn, assist new incoming territory managers. I fully expect that this partnership will significantly increase the pace of restaurant adoption from September onwards across the United Kingdom,” Naha added.
