Onboard Hospitality Awards 2021: Recognising Excellence, Resilience and Innovation

November 20, 2020

Onboard Hospitality Awards postponed to Spring 2021

Entries to The Onboard Hospitality Awards 2021 have been postponed to April 2021.

The Awards will now reopen for entries on 1 April 2021, and close on 1 July 2021. Winners will be announced in August 2021 at an awards ceremony that will take place alongside the World Travel Catering & Onboard Services Expo (WTCE) and The Aircraft Interiors Expo (AIX) in Hamburg.

“Due to the unprecedented impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our industry, we want to give companies the best chance to commemorate their achievements and product innovations from the past year,” says Sue Williams, publisher, Onboard Hospitality.

“By postponing the awards to Spring 2021, we hope more companies will be in a position to celebrate their successes, and it will enable us to all get together in person in Hamburg to announce our winners.”

Special COVID-19 coverage

We have decided to remove the special recognition categories previously announced and instead move forward with a special content campaign focused on sharing the stories of resilience, innovation and creativity of our industry. This will enable us to shine a light on more extraordinary individuals, teams and businesses and how they have coped with the COVID-19 crisis, with the first stories shared in our January/ February issue.
