Hotel Cateys 2016 shortlist revealed

The countdown to The Caterer's Hotel Cateys 2016 awards has begun and we are delighted to announce the shortlist.

Now in their 10th year, the awards are the hotel industry's only truly independent benchmark of operational excellence.

Since their launch in 2007, the Hotel Cateys have celebrated the most successful hotels, hoteliers and hotel employees across the UK. They were created to recognise and reward those individuals and teams that work tirelessly to make sure their business delivers an exceptional guest experience, day in, day out.

Nearly 90 judges, selected for their expertise and industry knowledge, met at London's Dorchester hotel last week for two days of vigorous debate and discussion to reduce the nominees to our shortlists in 15 out of 18 categories.

Shortlists are not revealed for the Hotelier of the Year, while nominations are open for entry in the Outstanding Contribution and Extra Mile categories.

The winners will remain a closely guarded secret until they are announced at a dazzling event on 25 November at London's Park Plaza Westminster Bridge hotel.

To purchase your ticket for the Hotel Cateys, visit our website or call Martha Allardyce on 020 7881 4828. To enquire about sponsoring the event, please contact Rob Adam, head of sales, on 020 7881 4817.

The Hotel Cateys are sponsored by Bidvest Foodservice, Bunzl, Casna Group, Citirecruit, Diversey Care, Lola Staffing, Reynolds, SCA Hygiene, Sky, Syft, Tchibo and Zenith Hygiene.
