Hospitality Awards

For 24 years, the Hospitality Awards have been celebrating innovation in various areas of hospitality management: Human Resources, Sustainable Development, Communications, Marketing and Concepts. As well as rewarding the winners selected by the jury, the Awards also highlight the best practices of industry leaders and new players.

The 2024 edition of the Hospitality Awards is open after consultation with the Advisory Board, chaired by Puneet Chhatwal, CEO of Indian Hotels Company Ltd, and bringing together fifteen representatives of the most active international hotel groups in the competition.

On their recommendations, the organizing committee changed the list of competing trophies, their definition and selection criteria. Ten “Corporate” trophies are open to hospitality companies in the broad sense, to highlight initiatives taken at headquarters level and intended to be deployed within the brand or network.

In addition, thirteen “Local” trophies are offered again this year to distinguish initiatives taken at the level of an establishment and which illustrate the creativity developed directly in the field of operations. They are also intended to reward exemplary individual actors, directors and collaborators, who provide the strength and success of an activity which relies heavily on human qualities.

Already prepare your files for the different categories.
