CHTA’s CHIEF Awards open for nominations

The Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association (CHTA) has called for nominations for its Caribbean Hotel Industry Exchange Forum (CHIEF) Awards, which recognize best practices in four areas: business operations, human resources, sales and marketing, and sustainability.

CHIEF awards honor and celebrate successful practices which CHTA member hotels and tourism-related enterprises have adopted to improve the quality of tourism, the Caribbean’s major economic driver.

The awards are open to all members of CHTA or one of the region’s National Hotel and Tourism Associations (NHTA), ministries or departments of tourism, travel industry partners, online travel agencies (OTA), travel Intermediaries, trade press, CHTA strategic partners and sponsors as well as the general public.

Nominations are submitted to CHTA and subsequently endorsed by the NHTA. A panel of judges representing top industry professionals in their respective areas will review all nominations and make their selections. Visuals, videos, charts, graphs, and other illustrative material are encouraged for inclusion with nominations.

Submissions will be rated on approach undertaken, application of approach as a practice, and results achieved, and the judges will select three finalists with an overall winner identified for each category.

President of CHTA, Nicola Madden-Greig stated: “The awards this year take on significant importance, especially coming out of two years of the pandemic and the level of skills that needed to be employed to drive recovery. Being able to recognize our members at this time for their efforts will go a long way and allow us to share best practices.”

Chair of the CHIEF Awards, Bill Clegg, also remarked: “We are excited to be able to once again have the awards ceremony after the pandemic-related hiatus.”

The top three finalists in each category and winners will be announced at an Awards Luncheon during the inaugural Caribbean Travel Forum in Puerto Rico on Monday, October 3, 2022, taking place just before the official opening of the 40th annual CHTA Caribbean Travel Marketplace October 3-5.

The deadline for nominations is Friday, September 9, 2022.
