Winners of CHS Awards 2020 announced

The winners of CHS Awards 2020 were announced on 28 October at a virtual ceremony hosted live on Zoom and aired via Delegate Wranglers Facebook page.

The awards saw more than 30 shortlisted entries across 10 award categories. 

Now celebrating its sixth year, the CHS Awards aim to "provide UK hotels and venues with an opportunity to showcase their facilities". Headline sponsors for the Awards included Delegate Wranglers and Preferred Hotels and Resorts. The CHS Awards were co-hosted with Delegate Wranglers Neil Thompson and founder of CHS Group Emma Cartmell, and included live music from Mr and Mrs Grey and a cocktail making experience from Zest Mixology.   

Emma Cartmell, founder of CHS Group said: “This year has been tough on us all. So, to get together, for a wonderful joyous occasion to recognise the talent we have in our industry was amazing.

"The standard of entry was exceptional, and I am so pleased and delighted by the response we have received. We owe a massive thank you to our judges who had a particularly tough job selecting winners from such an impressive field. 

"It was fantastic to see so many faces within the industry dressed in black tie to celebrate the achievements and successes of others and the feedback received from attending has been overwhelmingly positive, although we remain committed to live events!”
