The search is on for nominations for the two Independent Hotel Show Awards which will honour an innovative independent hotelier and a new hotel pushing the boundaries.
The first award will be presented to an entrepreneurial spirit who is renowned for shaping the independent hotel sector and creating exceptional guest experiences, while the second will go to a dynamic, game-changing hotel with a unique style and exemplary service.
Winners of the Independent Hotelier and Outstanding New Hotel awards will follow in the footsteps of previous recipients of the accolades: Paul Bayliss, Kate Levin and Olga Polizzi and Jeremy Goring for the hotelier award and No 15 Great Pulteney, the Laslett and Hotel Gotham for the hotel award.
Nominations can be made via the show's website, www.independenthotelshow.co.uk. Once nominations close on 29 June, a panel of industry professionals will select a shortlist and votes will be invited from the wider industry.
The winners will be announced on the first day of the show, which takes place on 16 and 17 October 2018 at Olympia London.
