Rotorua Hospitality Awards
The Rotorua Hospitality Awards are the region's premier hospitality awards and were held on 17th July!
The 5th annual awards celebrate and recognise everything and everyone that is hospitality; from the front of house team to the kitchen crew; from baristas to bar stars; from restaurants, bars to top industry personalities. The glittering awards night is a big night out, everyone has a chance to let their hair down and raise a glass to hospo in New Zealand's own Vegas!
