25th Institute of Hospitality Northern Ireland Awards for Professionalism entries now open

>>25th Institute of Hospitality Northern Ireland Awards for Professionalism entries now open

The Institute of Hospitality Northern Ireland Awards for Professionalism are the longest established hospitality awards in Northern Ireland, recognising the success of individuals working in all sectors of the industry. Entries are now open for the 2020 awards. #IOHNI25

The awards provide a platform to celebrate individual managers who have made a recognisable contribution to their place of work and to the industry in general.

There has never been a more exciting time to be involved in hospitality. An increase of 3,000 bedrooms is anticipated across Northern Ireland by 2021 and Belfast is currently the number one city in the UK for hotel investment. There is also an ambition to double the value of the tourism sector by 2020. It makes sense for us to recognise hard working, innovative, passionate professionals – those that really do go above and beyond the call of duty.

The deadline for entries is Monday 10 February 2020 and judging will take place on Tuesday 11 March and Wednesday 12 March 2020 at Crowne Plaza, Belfast. The Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony will be at Crowne Plaza Belfast on Friday 15 May 2020.

Don’t forget the awards are open to any eligible candidate who fits the criteria. You don’t have to be a member to take part.
