The fizz – and BH1 Gin – flowed when BH Area Hospitality Association (BAHA) launched the second annual Recognition Awards.

As reported on Dorset Biz News, this year’s awards will again celebrate the crème de la crème across the Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole hospitality sector.

Hoteliers met with sponsors at the Captain’s Club Hotel & Spa in Christchurch for the 2022 launch following the success of last year’s inaugural event.

This year’s main sponsors are Yellow Buses and Savills.

The main supporter is Bournemouth Coastal Bid.

Tim Seward, Chair of BH Area Hospitality Association, said: “I am pleased to see these awards grow from their inaugural year in 2021 with more categories enabling more hotel individuals to be recognised for the work they do.”

Nominations are now open for all 24 categories until September 6, 2022.

The awards ceremony, hosted by Andy Brennan, will take place on Sunday October 2 at The Mercure Bournemouth.
