The shortlist for the CHS Awards 2020 has been announced with more than 30 shortlisted entries across 10 award categories.

Now celebrating its sixth year, the CHS Awards provide UK hotels and venues with a fantastic opportunity to showcase their facilities. 

The Awards were due to take place at the LIVE Show, CHS Birmingham which had naturally been postponed to Spring 2021. The Awards will continue to go ahead as planned on the original date of 27 October, presented virtually with co-hosts and headline sponsors Delegate Wranglers and Preferred Hotels & Resorts.

Emma Cartmell, Founder of CHS Group said, “Now more than ever we should recognise and celebrate UK hotels, venues and event spaces; particularly individuals who are consistently putting customer service and hospitality at the forefront of their businesses. We’re facing one of the most challenging years and winters, after a perplexing summer. We need to rally together and find comfort in our wins and achievements within our sector and look forward to a bright future that we will have again soon.

Our awards are designed to be accessible for all types of hotels and venues, allowing even the smallest independent venue to be recognised for an aspect, service or feature of their property or service.”

The virtual CHS Awards will take place on 27 October at 6:30pm on Zoom with audience participation, live performances and cocktail making, Black tie is optional. To book your free ticket to attend, click here.
