Judging the Awards

After the success of the CHS Awards 2017 earlier this year, we’re launching the awards for the fourth year and are taking submissions to be one of our judges!

cloud9We are proud to announce we will again be working with the team at Cloud9 Event Management who will be managing all aspects of recruitment for the judges as well as overseeing the scoring criteria for the awards. It’s important that we at CHS Group remain impartial which is why we work with the team at Cloud 9 who do a sterling job for us.

The awards will once again recognise elements of venues rather than the entire property in order to provide a level playing field for all entrants, irrespective of whether they are a national chain or a small independent venue. This proved really popular last year and we were really delighted by the support that the industry put behind this initiative.

‘The CHS Awards’ will be running during the coming months and entries will close on Friday 23rd March 2018, judging will take place throughout March & April and the finalists will be announced live at the Conference & Hospitality Show in Leeds on the 24th April. The Award Ceremony & Gala Dinner will be held on Thursday 31st May 2018 and you will be invited to attend as our guest so please save the date.

Frequently Asked Questions

We don’t think so. You can simply judge one category or several – it depends on how busy you are at the time and you’ll receive the entries electronically once the deadline for entries has passed. Grab a cuppa (or glass of wine!), sit down and have a read through, with the supporting evidence. From there you will mark each entry and submit a form with your appropriate scores based on a simple criteria, which will also be issued. Easy peasy!

Of course! You will be our guest at the awards ceremony.

We’re happy to help if you have any questions, and we can even put you in touch with the other judges if that helps, but please keep your scores and decisions under wraps until the winners are announced. The industry at large will know you are a judge as we’ll be sending you an email button to add to your signature.
