The Outstanding Contribution award will be presented to someone who is likely to have enjoyed success over a prolonged period in the industry and could hail from any part of the hotel business. Following in the footsteps of the likes of Philip Newman-Hall (pictured), Robin Hutson, Patrick Dempsey and Gordon Campbell-Gray, he or she will have made a significant contribution to the industry and will command respect from their peers and colleagues alike.
Meanwhile, the Extra Mile award is open to a person or a team, working in at any level of the hotel industry. All previous winners, such as Chris Penn, Sylla "Amara" Ibrahima, David Mead-Male and Veronica Kingham, have undertaken something extraordinary, whether it is anticipating guest needs, helping colleagues or supporting charities.
