Hospitality companies wishing to enter the Best Practice Forum's Business Excellence Awards 2006 have until Thursday to do so.
The Best Practice Forum is a strategic alliance between key industry associations, and its prestigious awards are given to UK businesses that demonstrate their willingness to adopt or adapt best practice in all aspects of their operation.
Forum members include the British Hospitality Association, British Beer and Pub Association and Meetings Industry Association. It is supported by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport.
This year the awards are being run in association with the Guardian newspaper group, whose other titles include the Observer and Observer Food Monthly.
Winning entries will appear in a national supplement in the Observer and will be celebrated at an awards dinner at the London Hilton hotel on Park Lane on 3 May 2006.
Entries for the awards must be received no later than 15 December 2005 and more information can be found at www.bestpracticeforum.org
