FROM THE
QHA PRESIDENT

The QHA Awards for Excellence are recognised as the most prestigious awards in the hospitality industry, honouring the achievement of excellence in a wide range of categories. This on-going commitment to excellence ensures our state’s hotels are some of the best in Australia.

Queensland hotels are much more than just excellent food, cold beverages, quality entertainment, unique accommodation, and unmatchable service.  Hotels are often the social fabric that binds our local communities together; acting as the local RFDS and SES meeting places, providing fundraising opportunities for local sporting clubs and associations as well as offering a socially inclusive atmosphere and a friendly ear for anyone that needs a chat.  We should not underestimate the value that our venues play within our communities.

The annual QHA Awards for Excellence provides a prime opportunity to showcase your venues and staff and encourages you to be proud of your achievements. For the winners, it also brings additional marketing, advertising and media opportunities that are invaluable to your hotel. All award winners are presented with a plaque for display in the venue as well as a winner’s logo which can be used for your hotel’s own marketing and promotional campaign.

Winners of the QHA Awards for Excellence will be announced at the annual Gala Dinner and Presentation evening, being held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre on Monday 7 June 2021. The QHA Awards for Excellence is the highlight of the Queensland hotel calendar, bringing together our partners, hotel members and supporters from all corners of the State to celebrate our vibrant industry and recognise those hotels that have achieved excellence.

Those successful in specific categories will then have the opportunity to compete as a finalist in the AHA National Hotel Awards to be announced in Hobart in September.

I look forward to celebrating your achievements with you.
