Hozpitality Group announces its second Middle East Hozpitality Excellence Awards in 2016 in Dubai.

Over 400 candidates enter the race to be nominated as one of the best in their category. The Hozpitality Excellence Awards 2016 will be presented to recognize top industry organizations which have shown skill, creativity, ingenuity and success in the Middle East & North Africa’s growing hospitality industry.



The event will take place on the evening of Monday, 12th Dec 2016 at Dusit Thani Dubai, where more than 400 top industry figures will meet at this spectacular gala dinner. The glamorous evening will include a reception, a great meal and excellent entertainment, in addition to the actual awards ceremony.

The voting will be in two phases. Hospitality companies and individuals will be asked to register one of their best candidates/companies for each category. This will be done free of charge and each nominee should have details of why they are being nominated. The final list of nomination will be decided by the Judges.

We have over 650,000 hospitality professionals in our websites from over 200 countries. They will all be asked to vote online for these award nominations. We would also be sending the voting link to all the hotels who could hand them over to their guests/staff for nominations...

The list of candidates will be floated online among all our hospitality members and social media for online voting and the first shortlist will be chosen. The judges will be prominent hospitality professionals, who will be asked to pay particular attention to the standards of the products and people they are evaluating and cast their votes. The final result will be based on results of the online voting and Judges votes.

If your company has been in operation for at least the past twelve months, then you should enter these awards. Being declared a finalist puts you up among the best in the industry
