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 November 11, at The Exchange Hotel in Cardiff.

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

Wales 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 lively atmosphere makes Wales 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 Wales 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 Welsh Hospitality Awards 2019 said: “The Welsh Hospitality Awards 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 to improving the hospitality industry and making Wales an exciting destination for visitors.

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