Nominations are now being accepted for the Hotelier Express Awards 2018, which recognises outstanding achievements by individuals and teams in the Middle East's mid-market hospitality sector.

The Hotelier Express Awards is a recognition of the way the region’s top hoteliers in budget, economy, mid-scale, upper mid-scale and serviced apartment properties are excelling in disrupting the overall hospitality sector in the Middle East, by upgrading service standards and enhancing guest experiences, reengineering the way consumers and investors alike are regarding mid-market hotels, all the while maintaining operational efficiencies and protecting profitability. With more than 200 mid-market hospitality professionals expected to attend, the awards celebrate achievements in 14 categories.

There is a slight adjustment to the award categories for the 2018 Hotelier Express Awards, with nominations being expanded to include four-star hotels positioned within the mid-scale or upper mid-scale category. All budget, economy, mid-scale and upper mid-scale hotels (encompassing one-star, two-star, three-star and four-star hotels) as well as serviced apartment operators in the Middle East are eligible to nominate team members for the Hotelier Express Awards.
