Hotel & Hospitality Heroes

18 August 2021

The Federation is calling on members to celebrate their heroes and nominate staff to receive a Hotel and Hospitality Hero Award.

Explaining why it is important to recognise industry talent and nominate an individual for a Hotel and Hospitality Hero Award, Stephen Meldrum, President of NIHF, says: “People are without doubt our greatest asset. In many ways, they are the unique selling point for local hotels, helping visitors to discover a collection of new and unique Northern Ireland experiences. The role that employees play is integral to the success of the business and the sector as a whole. The Federation recognises this and that is why staff will be the star of the show at Hospitality Exchange 2021.  

“As part of this year’s event, we are asking members – accommodation and supplier – to nominate a person who has made an exceptional contribution to the sector, or gone above and beyond the call of duty, for a Hotel and Hospitality Hero Award. The awards are free to enter and all those who are selected as heroes, along with their nominator, will attend a special awards lunch hosted by Pamela Ballantine on Tuesday 12th October at the Crowne Plaza Belfast.

Stephen continues: “Over the last eighteen months, the mettle of staff has really been tested. I am immensely proud of the contribution they have made in helping the sector on its road to recovery”

Members can nominate their hero now via this link:

Closing date for entries is Friday 10th September.
