Recognising the excellence of hotels, restaurants and their teams across the UK, the awards is considered one of the industry’s “most prestigious and highly anticipated events”.
The awards will name the best hotels, restaurants and pubs across the UK, and celebrate individuals with awards such as the Lifetime Achievement Award, Chef of the Year and more.
This year’s AA Hospitality Awards will also mark the introduction of the inaugural Spa of the Year Award, which will recognise an “outstanding” spa offering within a hotel, delivering both an excellent overall product and spa experience.
Claude Bosi, chef patron at Bibendum said: “It has been a real honour and privilege to have been voted Chef of the Year by my industry peers and friends. I am (not!) looking forward to cooking for them all at the dinner.”
Simon Numphud, managing director at AA Hotel and Hospitality Services, added: “We are thrilled that Kate will be joining us to celebrate once again the greatest hospitality establishments in the UK and Northern Ireland.
“We are delighted that Claude is creating the menu as the food will be tremendous. The AA Hospitality Awards are a key date for the industry, and we are proud to reward the hard work and passion of the teams behind these incredible businesses.”
