Young hospitality entrepreneurs and managers that have made a mark on the industry are being sought by the British Travel and Hospitality Hall of Fame as it seeks to recognise a new set of stars.
Since their introduction, the awards have recognised some of the most legendary figures in travel and hospitality, including Richard Branson, Raymond Blanc and Jeremy King.
In addition to honouring those with a long track record of achievement, the awards also recognise young talent in travel and hospitality.
The Young Entrepreneur of the Year recognises an individual that is already making a significant mark in business, while the Young Manager of the Year Award will be awarded to an individual who has created a major impact on the performance of the business or department within a business. Entrants of both awards must be under 35 years of age.
Last year Adam Rowledge from Georgian House was crowned Young Manager of the Year, while Young Entrepreneur went to Sam Bruce & Alex Narracott, Founders of Much Better Adventures.
Meanwhile, the British Travel and Hospitality Hall of Fame also recognises businesses that can demonstrate the highest levels of ethical operation through the Sustainable Business award. This award recognises a travel or hospitality business that places sustainable business practices at the core of their company ideology.
The awards will be presented at a gala dinner which takes place on Monday 30 April 2018 at the Dorchester, London.
Nominations close next week so if you know of an exceptional young entrepreneur, manager or sustainable business then enter now.
