There are just two weeks left to nominate the trailblazing hoteliers and pioneering new hotels that have caused a stir and made an impact on the industry this year in the Independent Hotel Show Awards 2017.
The votes are now open and the exhibition, now in its sixth year, is calling for you to cast your nomination for the businesses and entrepreneurs that demonstrate individuality, locality, freedom, personality and innovation in two industry awards; Independent Hotelier and Outstanding New Hotel.
The nominations close on Friday 14 July, when a shortlist of six will be created by a panel of industry experts.
The winners will be chosen by the industry, by voting via the show registration form, and will be announced on Tuesday 17 October at the Independent Hotel Show.
The industry attendees will then go on to the Boutique Hotelier Personal Service Star Awards, across the road at Hilton Olympia.
The Independent Hotelier award recognises the spirit of an individual who drives the luxury boutique hotel sector forwards with creativity and wisdom. The individual will have made a significant contribution to the independent hotel sector and has a reputation for pushing boundaries and creating exceptional guest experiences.
Outstanding New Hotel
The Outstanding New Hotel award celebrates an independent hotel (operating for no more than three years) that brings dynamism and coveted ideas to the sector. A game-changer with a unique style, the hotel has influenced attitudes within the sector, whilst providing exemplary service and amazing guest experiences, as well as demonstrating remarkable business efficiency.
To nominate, please visit Independent Hotel Show website.
Past winners include Kate Levin, Olga Polizzi and Tim and Kit Kemp for Independent Hotelier of the Year, and The Laslett, The Pig on the Beach and Hotel Gotham in the Outstanding New Hotel category
