In November, the Hotlier of the Year 2009, sponsored by the Casna Group, was picked up by the managing director of Red Carnation Hotels, Jonathan Raggett at the Hotel Cateys Awards ceremony.
In true Hotelier of the Year tradition, the presentation of the Hotelier of the Year award was officially presented to Raggett by out-going Hotelier of the Year, Andrew McKenzie, managing director of The Vineyard Group.
For the second year, the Hotelier of the Year luncheon also hosted a panel debate with some of the top hoteliers from around the country. This year on the panel was, Andrew McKenzie, Gordon Campbell Gray, Robin Hutson and new Hotlelier of the Year Jonathan Raggett and was chaired by Bob Cotton from the BHA.
Caterer was on hand to capture the debate and you can watch highlights below.
