Elevating the future of hospitality in Saudi Arabia

For years, our Awards have celebrated the outstanding achievements of Saudi nationals who have significantly contributed to the Kingdom's hospitality industry. Reflecting the rapid growth and diversity of the hotel and hospitality industry in Saudi Arabia, the Awards will now feature two main categories: Personal Awards and Corporate Awards.

In recognition of the industry's growth and the increasing demand for diverse talent, the Personal Awards will welcome all residents of Saudi Arabia working in hospitality. This inclusive approach underscores our support for industry evolution and recognizes the contributions of every individual enriching the vibrant hospitality community.

We're also introducing a brand-new category, Corporate Awards, to recognize the outstanding establishments that elevate the hospitality experience in Saudi Arabia. This category will honor restaurants, hotels, and other venues that demonstrate exceptional service, design, and a commitment to excellence.

Join us as we continue to elevate and celebrate the future of hospitality in Saudi Arabia. Stay tuned for further updates!
