Tonrose is delighted to be sponsoring the new ‘HHH Awards’ – Hotel Housekeeping Honours. MEG Events Ltd, in association with Housekeeping Today UK and the UKHA, has launched the new ‘Triple H’ awards to celebrate the often-unsung heroes of the housekeeping industry.
Open to all sectors within housekeeping, back of house and hotel laundry, the HHH awards will recognise companies, individuals, services and products that stand out from the crowd, showcase exceptional industry professionalism and customer service, and demonstrate innovations and initiatives that make every guest experience special.
Alistair Sandall, one of the judges and Head of Professional Development at the Institute of Hospitality, said of the awards: “All too often, housekeeping is seen as the ‘Cinderella’ department, and its importance in operational success can be undervalued. The new HHH awards will greatly help to raise the profile of housekeeping”. Recognising both individuals and hotels, the awards will be held at Park Plaza London Riverbank on 28th March.
Tonrose will also be attending the UKHA Shared Knowledge Day the following day (29th March), where we will be exhibiting and talking to businesses about why we are the preferred linen supplier to the hospitality industry for thousands of hotels, restaurants, spas and laundries.
Supporting and recognising the professionalism and excellence of the hospitality industry is crucial to its success. We can’t wait to be there!
