We want the UK hospitality and tourism industry to be recognised as world class, and as the hospitality economy grows, our impact and voice can only strengthen. Boutique hoteliers and owners of independent lifestyle hotels are driving much of this growth, with new ideas and inspiration driving the sector forward to new heights of success.

These names are certainly represented in our Market Marvels category, which highlights 10 real industry innovators who have stood out over the past 12 months.
