Best Longstanding Awards Event – 15 to 25 years old

UKHospitality – Operations Managers Awards

The UKHospitality Operations Managers Awards recognise and reward the very best Operations Managers in the hospitality sector. They are so often the unsung heroes, with the company and the brand taking the plaudits, yet for the UKHospitality the role of Operations Managers is the vital link between the brand owner or franchise / lease company and successful Operations Managers are simply the difference between success and failure for some businesses. They drive unit managers and business owners forward through encouragement, passion and knowledge. All of those who work in this rewarding and challenging environment deserve the recognition these Awards bring to this role and to the sector as a whole.
