The Bolton Whites Hotel has reached the finals of the Conference and Hospitality Show Awards in two categories, with the results due to be announced on 30th April 2015.
Securing their place against venues from across the UK, Bolton Whites Hotel is a finalist in the Best Unusual Event Space Award and also Best Large Conference/Exhibition space Award.
The inaugural awards to be held at the Queens Hotel in Leeds provide hotels and venues the chance to compete in just 12 categories that are judged in two key stages by industry professionals.
Commenting on being a finalist, Suzanne Speak, general manager, said: “To be shortlisted in the two categories we entered is the icing on the cake for us following an incredibly successful year. They are an industry seal of approval for a job well done and we are delighted that our venue and its facilities are being recognised in this way.
“We are the original football hotel and with that comes a range of suites within the stadium walls that we can offer to attract events of all shapes and sizes ranging from large scale conferences and award dinners in the Premier suite through to car launches; and of course the pitch itself, which in the past has been a sell out venue for Coldplay, Elton John and Pink.”
Emma Cartmell, director of the Conference and Hospitality Show Group, said: “We’re delighted to launch the CHS Awards alongside the Conference and Hospitality Show. The awards sit nicely alongside our flagship event that is now established as a show for the meetings and events industry and will give the industry an opportunity to celebrate some of the UK’s most outstanding venues.”
