The winners of the  Leaders in Hospitality Awards 2017, presented by Rikan, were announced on Wednesday 17 May at a gala ceremony at The St. Regis Dubai.

Sixteen winners took home awards including Leading New Hotel, Leading General Manager and the Lifetime Achievement Award.

Praising the high standards set by this year’s winners, as well as the shortlisted entries, BNC Publishing CEO Wissam Younane said: “For an event centered on recognising the MENA region’s Leaders in Hospitality, it was an honour for us at Hotel News Middle East to be able to host some of the finest names in this industry at The St. Regis Dubai last night.

“With more than 300 people in attendance, this year’s Leaders in Hospitality Awards were a celebration of the excellent work being done in this sector, and we consider it a privilege to be able to laud the people and companies that are driving this dynamic industry forward.”

Media One Hotel took home two awards on the night: Leading Hotel Team and Rising Star for Sarah Noury.

Sally Meech, director of marketing & communications at Media One Hotel said: “This is the icing on the cake – it’s just wonderful to have been part of the team for the past seven years. I’ve been working with our GM Mark Lee for five years and it’s been brilliant, it’s been great doing all the awards, but this is really special.”

The Lifetime Achievement Award went to Andy Cuthbert, Mina A Salam Hotel & C & I, Jumeirah Hospitality at Madinat Jumeirah.

Another big winner on the night was Stephen Meredith, Steigenberger Hotel Business Bay Dubai, who lifted the award for Leading General Manager.
