Hawke's Bay Hospitality Awards
The Hawke's Bay Hospitality Awards returned for the 9 th year to recognise the outstanding workers in all areas of hospitality. This year the awards were presented by the Restaurant Association of New Zealand and were held on 4th July at MTG Century Theatre, with afterparty at Shed 2 on the Quay.
It's imperative the hospitality industry recognises its champions as it provides not only a peer benchmark for excellence but also serves to give consumers valuable insights on the best places to visit.
The same principles of the Hospitality Awards voting process will apply and only hospitality industry workers in Hawke's Bay are eligible to participate.
