The Power List will be published on April as a separate publication in addition to the regular monthly magazine, and this special guide will honour 50 of the market’s most deserved individuals and pay tribute to their achievements over the past 12 months.

The Power List is set to be the ultimate record of the people helping to make the UK boutique hotel market one of the world’s greatest.

The Power List is aimed at recognising the people at owner and manager level who play a major part in shaping the way that their hotels look and how staff operate in their business.

This includes owners, operators, managers and senior executives of boutique, independent and lifestyle hotels, or any other key decision-maker in the hotel business.

The Power List applies to individuals employed by any boutique hotel or independent hotel operator. For example, this includes city centre boutique hotels, country house hotels, hotel groups of five properties or less, pubs with rooms and restaurants with rooms.

To make your nomination, simply download the nomination form HERE, give a short description of the individual(s) you wish to nominate and email it over to us before the deadline of Friday 19 February 2016.

The Boutique Hotelier Power List will be split into the following categories:
– Market marvels
– Industry titans
– Business leaders
– Young trailblazers
– Unsung heroes

Commenting on the launch of the 2016 BH Power List, Boutique Hotelier Editor Zoe Monk said: “Confidence has returned to the independent and lifestyle hotel sector over the past year and many hoteliers are now experiencing an uptick in trade as a result. With this in mind, it is the ideal time to recognise the stars of the boutique hotel industry who are playing a huge part in driving this forward this growth.

“We hope the Power List will help to shine a light on the market’s high achievers, from the business leaders and innovators inspiring their companies to success to the people managing key projects and the unsung heroes tirelessly working behind the scenes to make customers lives’ easier.”

Operators are free to nominate individuals from within their own businesses.

As the Power List will be produced as a special standalone publication and distributed to a select named audience of hotel owners, managers and operators, companies interested in taking advantage of advertising or marketing opportunities around the edition should contact or as soon as possible.
