The award, which was decided by public vote, recognises the Institute of Hospitality’s hard work and success on behalf of its 13,000-strong membership.
Robert Richardson FIH, chief executive of the Institute of Hospitality, said: “Winning this gold award is a fantastic moment for our team at the Institute of Hospitality. The amount of work they’ve put in through the years on behalf of members is incalculable. So, it’s such an enormous boost to be recognised by the public for the work we do.
“Moreover, it says a lot about our individual members. As an inclusive membership association, we are shaped by the standards and commitment of our membership, which includes hoteliers, restaurateurs, contract caterers, publicans, academics, graduates and suppliers. We hope that winning this prestigious award signals a new era of growth for the Institute.”
The National Association Awards recognise the hard work and success of associations, federations, chambers of commerce, societies and membership organisations across all sectors.
