Nominations open for GM of the Future 2022

The GM of the Future Award, created by The Master Innholders as part of the Independent Hotel Show Awards, is open for nominations in 2022 to spotlight a talented aspiring general manager.

The award recognises a rising star in the hotel industry, someone who consistently goes the extra mile and has a commitment to inspiring others. Entrants must be 35 years old or under, and can work in any role aside from general manager within the hotel profession.

Alongside the new GM of the Future award, the Independent Hotel Show will celebrate the luxury boutique hotel sector’s most innovative and inspiring hoteliers with its Independent Hotelier of the Year Award.

David Morgan-Hewitt FIH MI, chairman of the Master Innholders said: “Now in its third year, the GM of the Future Award has been a major success in showcasing and celebrating talented young hoteliers, and we are delighted to present this award once again in partnership with the Independent Hotel Show. Our organisation cares deeply about nurturing young talent in hospitality and keeping the industry alive for passionate future generations, and this award is another vital step in helping us achieve our goals.”

GM of the Future entries will be judged by a panel of Master Innholders, representatives from the Independent Hotel Show, and other key industry figures. Self-nominations are accepted. All nominations must be submitted by 13 June 2022.

The winners will be announced at the end of the first day of the Independent Hotel Show, taking place on 4 and 5 October 2022 at Olympia London.
