Hospitality Award 2019:
"Hotel Regeneration and successful restaurant concepts"
The eleventh edition of the Hospitality Award, the prize aimed at rewarding the excellence of the tourism world, focuses on restyling projects with a strong characterization of the hotel product in terms of design and enhancement of the territory. The f&b with new restaurant proposals have been a further element for the selection of the final candidates: the new management strategies, in fact, have designed in recent years a new image of hotel catering, which is increasingly distinguished by greater attention to the territory, a personalized and flexible service, excellent supply chains and gourmet restaurants. Focusing on the quality of the gastronomic offer has become for hotel facilities an element of strong appeal not only for guests but also for external customers to the point of becoming, sometimes, a real attraction. "Regeneration & Catering" were the criteria of the market focus, elaborated by PKF hotelexperts Milan, which led to the selection of the final candidates for the Hospitality Award 2019:
