Due to popular demand, an additional category for 'Best Large Conference/Exhibition Space' has been added to the recently launched CHS Awards 2015.
The inaugural CHS Awards, run in conjunction with the Conference and Hospitality Show, have been designed to provide hotels and venues outside of the M25 with a unique opportunity to showcase their facilities. They offer a fantastic opportunity for any venue to shout about their facilities, and the finalists will be announced at the CHS Exhibition on Tuesday 24 March 2015.
Entrants are given the opportunity to compete in one of 13 carefully chosen categories. The winners will be announced at an Awards Ceremony taking place on 30th April 2015 at The Queens Hotel in Leeds.
Emma Cartmell, Director of CHS Group, commented: "We’re delighted to launch the CHS awards alongside the Conference and Hospitality Show next year. The awards sit nicely alongside our flagship event that is now established as a show for the meetings and events industry. The awards will give the industry an opportunity to celebrate some of the UK’s most outstanding venues the evening before the show and we’re delighted to be joining forces with Cloud 9 Event Management to deliver the awards with style."
