Nominate your Rising Star today!

Each year we run a Future Leaders Day as part of our Annual Conference to give our up and coming industry leaders a day to get together and discuss issues relevant to them.

This year we have beefed that day up even more with the introduction of the Rising Stars Awards.

Who can I nominate?

Nominations for the Rising Stars Awards are now open and cover every aspect of the sector including Up and Coming Barista, Front of House, Chef, Entrepreneur, as well as, a Duty Manager and Emerging Accommodation Professional Award. But the one that is going to be a hotly contested category is the Unsung Hero Award – let’s face it, without the glassy, the kitchenhand, the porter and the housekeeper most of our businesses wouldn’t function, so they absolutely deserve a moment in the spotlight too.

When is the Rising Stars Awards?

The Future Leaders Day will be held on Tuesday 17 October, with the inaugural Rising Stars Awards taking place in the evening.
