With 16 awards on offer, enter today and celebrate your achievements. Nothing inspires a team better than industry acclaimed recognition!
Friday 9th September is the final opportunity to enter and celebrate the inspiring individuals and initiatives who have raised hospitality, leisure and tourism sector’s profile, whilst also providing industry-wide recognition.

Sally Beck FIH, General Manager of Lancaster London, said: “Winning the award for Best Housekeeping Development Strategy 2015 meant a huge amount to our team. Margo Van Der Werf our Director of Accommodation Services has pioneered her housekeeping academy for the last 7 years and the award gave serious industry-wide accreditation to the scheme and our team members that have flourished within it. The Awards are an excellent way of showcasing the best of our industry and sharing best practise amongst our peers. In our vibrant and competitive industry these sorts of accolades only bring good things.”
Anne Pierce, Springboard’s CEO, said: “The Springboard Awards for Excellence distinguish the best endeavours and contributions to the industry in the last year. The Awards recognise the achievements of organisations and winning an award has a significant and positive impact on both businesses and employees alike.”
