The S.Pellegrino World’s 50 Best Restaurants is the most important international event in the world of high cuisine. It takes place during the second half of April in London, where each year the top 50 restaurants in the world are announced to an audience of around 600 people including chefs, journalists and food experts from all over the world. Published for the first time in 2002 in the Restaurant Magazine, the S.Pellegrino World's 50 Best is drawn up exclusively based on votes given over a period of 18 months by a large jury of experts worldwide (over 800 chefs, journalists and food critics) who form the World's 50 Best Restaurants Academy. The Academy voters are divided into 24 jury panels (corresponding with 24 regions of the world), each one headed by a chairman. S.Pellegrino, in line with its global positioning was the title sponsor of this event, which is growing exponentially each year in terms of media coverage (over 800 articles published in 2011). Acqua Panna was also involved, awarding 6 Acqua Panna Continental Restaurant Awards, during the presentation ceremony to the best restaurants Europe, Asia, the Americas, Australia, the Middle East and Africa, and thus finding a great opportunity for increasing visibility. In 2012 S.Pellegrino and Acqua Panna appear together in the logo as main sponsors of the event. A new List has been lounched in 2013: Asia's 50 Best Restautrants List, to recognize the great quality of asian cuisine and restaurants.
