The very first edition of Hospitality Leaders Industry Choice Awards has garnered popularity and recognition within the industry as being the only award where winners are chosen by professionals from amongst the hospitality fraternity themselves, making it absolutely transparent and credible.

The Awards are being held in conjunction with the 5th Edition of the Hotelier Summit India on (4-5) June, 2015 in partnership with the Hospitality Procurement Manager's Forum (HPMF) and National Real Estate Development Council (NAREDCO) to celebrate and recognise distinguished stalwarts of the hospitality industry. The Summit is a pan India initiative aimed at enhancing the procurement processes by bringing together leading Hotel Owners, Operators, Developers, Architects, Interior Designers, Consultants, Industry Experts and Service Providers for knowledge sharing and networking.

Speaking at the side lines of the award ceremony, Mr. Ganesh Babu, Director, IDE Consulting Service Pvt. Ltd said: "The tourism and hospitality sector is amongst the top 15 sectors in India to attract the highest foreign direct investment (FDI). During the period April 2000-February 2015, this sector attracted around US$ 7,862.08 million of FDI, according to the data released by the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP). The hospitality industry is an integral part of a traveller's experience. With India experiencing an upward trajectory of growth, not just from the urban areas but from all over the country, these numbers are only set to grow. The Hospitality Leaders Industry Choice Awards is a platform to recognize two things: the increasingly discerning customer who knows what he wants and brands that constantly reinvent themselves to create benchmarks that are nothing short of global standards."
