Entries are now open for the Hotel Cateys, the awards that celebrate the most successful hotel operators and their employees in the UK.
The awards are the hotel industry's only truly independent benchmark of operational excellence, with entrants judged by their peers and industry experts.
This year the Hotel Cateys feature two new awards, recognising chefs who operate restaurants within hotels and the growing influence of technology on operations.
To accompany the Hotel Chef of the Year awards, which recognise hotel employees that service all areas of the hotel, there is now a Hotel Restaurant Chef award to celebrate the people who run standalone outlets within a hotel.
Meanwhile, the new Best Use of Technology award will recognise businesses and individuals delivering technology innovation that has made a tangible difference to their businesses in the last year.
The Hotel Cateys celebrate those teams and individuals who work tirelessly to support the UK's hotel sector, with categories ranging from Concierge Award to Human Resources Team of the Year and Housekeeper of the Year.
Entries can also be submitted for the Hotelier of the Year award, sponsored by Casna Group, which recognises those at the very pinnacle of the hotel profession.
Winners will be celebrated at a glittering ceremony held at the Park Plaza Westminster on 22 November 2019.
