Enter now Entries open for GM of the Future Award

We are thrilled to have partnered with the Independent Hotel Show again to bring the industry the GM of the Future Award.

Recognising the passion of independently spirited hoteliers who drive our sector forward, the Independent Hotel Show Awards champion all that make independent hotels such amazing places to stay.

The GM of the Future Award is presented to an individual who shows promise to fulfil the role of a Hotel GM in the future. The winner will be recognised for their personal and professional development in the hotel industry, their ‘extra mile’ attitude and commitment to becoming a future leader.

For established hoteliers within the industry, the Independent Hotelier Award is given to an individual who has made a significant contribution to the independent hotel sector. A pioneer with a reputation for pushing boundaries, the winner is someone committed to the development of their team, the success of their establishment and the industry at large.

Commenting on the GM of the Future award, chairman of the Master Innholders and managing director of The Goring, David Morgan-Hewitt FIH MI said: “Throughout the history of the Master Innholders, we have made the development and career growth of future leaders a key priority to our organisation, proving opportunities such as the Innholders Scholarship, Aspiring Leaders Diploma and most recently Master Innholders Developing Additional Skills (MIDAS) programme. Now more than ever, it is vital to attract, develop, retain and recognise the next generation of hotel professionals, which is why we launched the GM of the Future award in 2019.

“We have been engaged supporters of the Independent Hotel Show since its inception and I am delighted we have been able to continue to strengthen our partnership further and present the only industry accolade focused on promoting the aspiring hotel general managers of the future.”
