Spotlighting talent: Nominations now open for HOSPA’s highly-anticipated ‘Inspirational Leader Award

HOSPA, the Hospitality Professionals Association, is now welcoming submissions for its annual ‘Inspirational Leader Awards’, as it looks to shine a light on the industry’s brightest talents.

Set to cover a number of categories, the award ceremony will take place on 16th November at the Royal Lancaster London, with winners announced in the evening during a Gala Dinner that rounds off its annual HOSPACE conference.

HOSPA is now encouraging people to nominate those individuals who have gone above and beyond in what has been yet another challenging year in hospitality, with ambitions of showcasing these endeavours in the company of some of the UK’s top hospitality professionals.

With a deadline of the 10th September, the awards are looking to highlight inspirational leaders from all corners of the UK hospitality industry, from Finance through to Asset Management.

The full range of categories set to be awarded at this year’s event, include:

  • Inspirational Finance Leader of the Year - Sponsored by BDO

  • Inspirational Revenue Manager of the Year - Sponsored by Edwards & Finn

  • Inspirational Marketer of the Year - Sponsored by For-Sight

  • Inspirational Technology Leader of the Year - Sponsored by BT

  • Inspirational Sustainability Leader of the Year

  • Inspirational Leader - Asset Management Project

Jane Pendlebury, CEO of HOSPA, commented: “Once again, we are delighted to welcome submissions for our annual awards which were a great success last year. With hospitality continuing to diversify and new technologies spelling a new era for the industry, it's important now, more than ever, to highlight some of the amazing people that continue to break down barriers and stand out from the crowd."

She continued: “We are delighted to include this celebration once again, as part of our gala dinner which, for many, is the highlight of the conference. In an industry built on people, there is nothing more powerful than face-to-face events like HOSPACE — not only for the transfer of knowledge and expertise but also to be in the same room as like-minded individuals. If there is anyone that you believe to be a truly inspirational leader who has gone above and beyond this year, this is your chance to shine a light on these efforts. So please do not hesitate to put them forward for an award and join us for what is always a great evening.”
