The regional hospitality industry's biggest night is fast approaching.

The 2019 Hotelier Awards celebrates the teams and individuals who deserve recognition for their hard work throughout the year. This year, the awards will be an ‘Everyone’s a Rock Star’ themed night. The event will take place on October 23 2019 at a venue set to be announced shortly.

If you haven't already submitted your nominations, we have all the details for you.

The awards span 18 categories and all entries for this year’s awards need to relate to achievements based over the past 12 months.

You have until the Wednesday 31 July 2019 to get our nominations submitted through the event website:
The submissions will be judged by a panel of industry experts, who will be announced in the August issue of Hotelier Middle East.

Here’s three tips on how to prepare for entering the event:

Don’t procrastinate

As the famous Benjamin Franklin once quoted: “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail” and we want to make sure entrants stand the best chance of collecting an accolade.

The final decisions of our judge will be based primarily on the factual information offered. In planning and compiling your submission, include every piece of detail – you would not want to lose out to a competitor.

Quality over quantity

Quality beats quantity every time, and we would prefer entrants to take a selective approach when considering a nomination. Choose categories that best represents the key strengths and achievements of your company or nominated individual. It’s better to submit five nominations that play to your key strengths rather enter every category in a hap-hazard manner. If you feel that you have multiple staff members who merit a particular award, then feel free to nominate them all.

We want to celebrate your achievements and this is your chance to tell the Middle East hospitality industry exactly what you’ve been doing and how well you’ve been doing it.

We mean business

Take a moment to think about the detail that would impress if you were presenting your entries. What is it about your company, concept, team or individual that makes it stand out from the crowd? We care about how well your property is doing, and how individual team members are contributing towards its financial success. Any figures shared will stay anonymous, but information such as percentage change in revenue due to the implementation of a new policy will help us judge how successful you are as a business.

Good luck!
