NEHA Excellence Awards set to recognise the best in hospitality

The North East Hotelier’s Association (NEHA) will host its annual awards ceremony and ball at The Fed on Sunday October 26 – with hoteliers from across the region coming together to recognise the best in the industry.

More than 370 guests were part of last year’s awards ceremony, and organisers are expecting to welcome more than 500 attendees this year.

The NEHA, which was established more than three decades ago, has seen its membership increase considerably in the last 12 months. The organisation provides invaluable support, guidance and a sense of community to hoteliers and businesses connected to the hospitality industry.

One of England’s largest associations of its kind, NEHA currently comprises 64 of the most prominent hotels in the region, serving as the collective voice of the sector. Its core mission is to advocate for change and question decisions impacting the industry, while ensuring regional voices are heard. NEHA is also committed to simplifying the lives of hoteliers by addressing common challenges.

This year’s black-tie event will include a three-course dinner, the Excellence Awards ceremony and live music, and will be compered by Charlie Richmond.

In collaboration with key regional sponsors, the gala will shine a spotlight on exceptional individuals in 10 categories, presenting awards to those who have demonstrated excellence despite formidable challenges.

Anna Wadcock, general manager of the Maldron Hotel, said: “Our dedicated staff have admirably achieved so much again this year and shown that the hospitality industry is one to be celebrated. We extend our heartfelt appreciation to our members and sponsors for their unwavering support over the years. This year’s event promises to be an exceptional evening for all, and we hope that the event continues to grow over future years.

“In an industry that employs more than 3,400 staff and indirectly influences around 11,400 jobs in the region, we invite more hoteliers to consider joining NEHA to ensure their voices are heard and celebrate in the success of the profession.”
