Set to honour the stars of the Middle East’s hospitality industry, the Hotelier Middle East Awards 2016 will celebrate its 12th edition with the ‘old Hollywood glamour’ theme at The Ritz-Carlton DIFC on Wednesday, October 26, 2016.

In this month’s feature, Hotelier Middle East catches up with the winners of the 2015 Awards — held at a James Bond-themed party — and we find out how winning the title has changed their career.

It’s a reminder that the Hotelier Middle East Awards are truly the Oscar’s of the regional hospitality industry, as we strive to recognise those who keep this market ticking.

Nomination forms for 2016’s Awards are open, and the deadline is August 31 (no extensions). The editorial team will then shortlist six nominees in each category, before sending it to the expert panel of judges.
