The winners, who are chosen by members of the public, are a true reflection of the hard work, quality and impeccable customer service that is offered in the hospitality industry. The awards also showcased those individuals who continue to thrive and whose excellence has led them at the forefront of the industry.
A Spokesperson for the Irish Hospitality Awards 2019 said: “The hospitality industry has grown significantly over the years and this has introduced new challenges to the professionals who work within the sector. The customer expectations have been increased but these winners are the experts in meeting their customers’ needs and demands in the best possible way.”Tags:
