The Sustainable Hospitality Challenge (SHC) 2023, by Hotelschool The Hague, has concluded, and the exceptional winner of this year’s competition have been announced by William Heinecke, Founder & Chairman of Minor International, at the Future Hospitality Summit in Abu Dhabi. This edition stood out for the remarkable synergy between Tech, Design, and Engineering teams, working collaboratively to revolutionize sustainability in the hospitality industry.
Jonathan Worsley, Chairman of The Bench, organiser of FHS, said: “We are extremely proud to host the finals – and celebrate the winners – of the Sustainable Hospitality Challenge. With 2023 being the Year of Sustainability in the UAE, COP 28 taking place in a few weeks’ time and investors and travellers placing more emphasis on ESG, sustainability is under the spotlight more than ever before – and a hot topic at the Future Hospitality Summit.
It has been an honour to be be part this prestigious, ever-growing competition, which continues play a key role in shaping the future of the travel and tourism sector. As always, the entries push boundaries, challenge the norms and set the scene for generations to come. My congratulations to all involved in this year’s Awards, and special kudos to our winners.”
