Congratulations to all the finalists and winners of this 21st edition and a heartfelt thank you to all our partners and participants without whom the event could not have taken place.

I am delighted to preside over this edition to celebrate the achievements in our industry and shine a light on the talents who have been delivering exceptional innovations in the most unprecedented of times. Arne Sorenson was a true believer in innovation, he once said: « Be inquisitive, you will never know if you do not try ». How we lived, worked, traveled 20 months ago has been turned on its head. Our core purposes are welcoming guests and connecting with people. We survived and reopened our doors. As an industry we responded to the new normal. As we start to see the world returning to a new normality, it might be easy to return to the familiar, but we can’t, it is now time to embrace the path of opportunities. 

Satya Anand, President EMEA Marriott International

How great it was to have our hospitality Family back together for the Hospitality Awards. Despite a situation that was and remains very tough, we are still standing. The competition is part of the game. But I can tell you that our industry has already won by demonstrating such resilience and dynamism. Our industry is responding to fundamental and anthropological needs. As social animals, we need social interactions and diversified experiences to creates memories. This is exactly what our industry delivers. The applications we received this year in the social responsibility category illustrate our human values.

Vanguélis Panayotis, President Hospitality ON
