The 14th annual Hotelier Middle East Awards is now accepting nominations from the Middle East & North African hospitality industry.

All the categories from the 2017 edition are returning this year; however, there is a new category that has been added: Mid-Market Hotel Team of the Year. With the absorption of the Hotelier Express brand into the mother-ship Hotelier Middle East, a decision was taken to honour this sector of the industry with its own category in this year's awards. Those who entered the Hotelier Express Awards earlier in 2018 are still eligible to enter; however, these hotel teams must show new achievements in the time period August 2017-August 2018.

Hotels across all star-ratings are eligible to enter all categories. Only mid-market hotel teams can enter the Mid-Market Hotel Team of the Year category, while the rest can enter the Hotel Team of the Year category.

All entries must be submitted online through the event website: On the website’s top banner, you will see a link that says “Submit Nominations”. Click on that, and you will be taken to the event’s submission micro-site. On this site, you will be asked to sign in and create an account. The account is a centralised system from which you can submit all nominations for your property.

Once you sign in to your account, you can submit entries for multiple categories, and edit the nominations right up until the nominations website closes on September 2, 2018. No extensions will be granted to the deadline.

The awards this year will follow the theme of 'A Taste of India' and will take place on October 24, 2018 in Dubai, with the venue to be confirmed soon.

Guests will receive a 5% discount on their booking if completed before August 19, 2018.

Please read the May and June issues of Hotelier Middle East for a guide on entering your nominations.
