The miaList2016 recognises outstanding contributions by individuals working in the meetings, hospitality and events industry.
Speaking about the awards, Jane Longhurst,Chief Executive of the mia, said:
“The miaList is about recognising the incredible and inspiring talent within our industry and we were delighted with the huge number of entrants. The 2016 winners certainly showcase some of the sectors’ exceptional individuals who have stood out over the last 12 months for their dedication, innovation, leadership and commitment to the events industry.”
'Front of House Professional' was scooped by Helen Hickmore, head receptionist at Buckland Tout Saints and the 'Sales Professional' category was awarded to Suzanne Draper, Eden's business development manager.
Abhjeet Dasalkar, head chef at The Arden Hotel – part of the Eden Hotel Collection – scooped the Food and Beverage Professional title.
Eden Hotel Collection's Managing Director Mark Chambers said,
"For me, unlike most industry awards, the ones that recognise teams or individuals are really gratifying. It’s great that so many of our team were rewarded for their professionalism and excellence in their fields – the judges’ comments really were overwhelmingly positive.
Suzanne, Helen and Abhijeet should all be immensely proud of themselves, but the award is also a testament to Eden Hotel Collection’s commitment to the development of our people."
