The Northern Ireland Hospitality Awards 2019 celebrate industry excellence

The 3rd Northern Ireland Hospitality Awards 2019 are back once again for a memorable celebration of the people and businesses that make up the country we all love.

The full list with finalists has been complied and the winners will be announced in a star studded night that will take place on Monday September 23, at The Crowne Plaza Hotel in Belfast.

The event aims to showcase key professionals and businesses that enhance the country’s reputation nationally and internationally.

Northern Ireland is well known for its friendly people, whose creative thinking and innovative spirit bring them at the forefront of the business field they operate within.

The country’s lively atmosphere makes Northern Ireland top destination for visitors who seek to spend some time relaxing by exploring the countryside or visiting museums and galleries to get an idea of the country’s rich heritage.

These awards will recognise everyone that makes Northern Ireland so special, from restaurants that serve delicious and unique dishes, bars and clubs that ensure unforgettable nights, museums, shopping centres as well as top hotels which create memories that stay with us.

A Spokesperson for the Northern Ireland Hospitality Awards 2019 said: “The Northern Ireland Hospitality Awards are now in their third year and celebrate the outstanding achievements of inspiring professionals that work hard to develop the cultural, social and economic life of the country.

“There are some talented individuals whose valuable work often remains un-known to the public. We hope that these awards will provide a platform to thank everyone for their contributions and dedication to improving the hospitality industry and making Northern Ireland an exciting destination for visitors.

“We can’t wait to welcome all finalists and guests and deliver an enjoyable event.

“We would like to wish all finalists the best of luck.”
