SA HOTEL INDUSTRY AWARDS FOR EXCELLENCE NOMINATION - DEADLINE POSTPONED
Considering the recent restrictions enforced on the public by the threat of COVID-19 will be POSTPONING the AHA|SA Hotel Industry Awards for Excellence from the scheduled date of 7 July. As a result, we will now be relaxing the deadline for nominations until further down the track.
We will keep all members updated as to this timeline.
In the interim, we encourage all hotels to still consider nominating and preparing award submissions where possible.
The restrictions will come to an end at some stage and we will look forward to celebrating our wonderful industry and its people the way it deserves to be.
The annual AHA|SA Awards for Excellence provides a prime opportunity to showcase your venues and be proud of your achievements. For the winners, it also brings fabulous marketing, advertising and endorsement opportunities that are invaluable to your hotel. All award winners are presented with a magnificent framed certificate for display in the venue as well as a winner’s logo which can be used for your hotel’s overall marketing and promotional campaign.
Winners of the AHA|SA Awards for Excellence will be announced at the annual Gala Dinner .
The AHA|SA Awards for Excellence is the highlight of the South Australian hotel calendar, bringing together hotel industry members and associates from all corners of the State to celebrate our vibrant industry and recognise those hotels that have achieved excellence.
Those successful in specific categories will then have the opportunity to compete as a finalist in the AHA National Hotel Awards to be announced in August.
