The Independent Hotel Show, in partnership with James Hallam, taking place on 16-17 October 2023 at Olympia London, has announced the launch of a new competition – Hoteliers’ Choice – designed to showcase innovative industry suppliers.

The show, which is the UK’s only trade event dedicated to the boutique and independent hotel sector, will be reaching out to its audience to nominate unique, stylish, innovative and industry-leading suppliers to the hotel sector which deserve to be celebrated and showcased at this year’s event.

A specially selected panel of hoteliers and event partners will shortlist 15 companies, after which the industry will have the chance to vote for five winning companies to secure a free exhibition stand at the 2023 edition plus an exclusive marketing package, together worth up to £5k.

Independent Hotel Show Event Manager Glenn Wallace comments: “With the launch of Hoteliers’ Choice 2023 we wanted to showcase the suppliers that are truly at the forefront of innovation in the hospitality sector, and who better to nominate the best of the best than the independent hoteliers themselves.

“This is a fantastic, unparalleled opportunity to not only get directly in front of key hotel buyers, but also to stand out from the crowd as a trusted supplier and a true innovator in the eyes of the independent hotel community.”

Eljesa Saciri General Manager of The Zetter Townhouse Marylebone, adds: “As hoteliers, being able to recognise the amazing teams and individuals that work alongside you to ensure your standards are being met, your guest’s satisfaction is continually excelling, and your team has the support of the people in the background is an outstanding opportunity.

“There are so many suppliers who play a part in the day to day running of what we do, yet often go unnoticed, this is a great opportunity to bring those people, and companies to the forefront.”
