What's Floating Around

18 February 2019


Welcome to another week #eventprofs and we’re in Awards mode here at Cloud 9 Towers, as next Sunday night is the Oscars – what a great event that must be to organise – although probably a logistical nightmare, given the prolific nature of the event, and those who attend.

The M&IT Awards are also just around the corner on 1 March with the Conference News Agency Awards on 21 March, so lots of opportunities for recognition for both agents and suppliers – and – a little closer to home for us, is the CHS Awards 2019 which are now open for entries.

The Conference and Hospitality Show (CHS) Awards which showcase the best of the UK hospitality industry – from hotels and venues to suppliers and buyers – is now in its fifth year, recognise and celebrate groups and individuals that don’t normally get an opportunity to share excellence, across a variety of different disciplines.

To commemorate this landmark anniversary, and in recognition of the 10th anniversary of the Conference and Hospitality Show, organisers have introduced ten new categories.

Alongside established award categories for Best Independent Venue or Hotel, Best Catering Provider and Best External Event Space, new for 2019 are Rising Star, Lifetime Achievement, Best UK Conventions Centre and Best Conference Planner Awards.

The awards are judged by an independent panel of 50 event and hospitality professionals from leading agencies across the UK.  The awards are free to enter, and nominees can enter as many categories they like and there is a relevant award for every individual, venue, event space, organisation or supplier involved in the industry.

The CHS 2019 Awards are open for entries and details of the categories and entry criteria are all available online at www.chsawards.co.uk   The timeline for the CHS 2019 Awards is:

Friday 1st March 2019           Deadline for CHS 2019 Awards

Tuesday 30th April 2019        Shortlist Announced at The Conference & Hospitality Show

Thursday 6th June 2109        CHS 2109 Awards at Royal Armouries, Leeds

Have a great week and think #Awards!
