QHotels was awarded a top industry accolade in the 2017 M&IT awards, scooping the coveted gold award for Best Venue Group Meeting Product.
The group, which owns 26 four-star hotels across the UK, was commended for its continued investment into meeting and events facilities across the group and commitment to consistently delivering outstanding service, at the glittering ceremony on Friday 3 March.
The awards, organised by Meetings & Incentive Travel magazine, celebrate the best venues, suppliers and agencies in the industry, with winners voted for by event industry professionals.
Chris Gaines, Sales Director of QHotels, said: "The prestigious M&IT awards recognise the very best in the industry and are especially important to us because they're voted for by event professionals themselves, allowing us to understand how we're performing in the eyes of our event guests.
"We're constantly listening and looking at how we can improve our offering to meet the changing needs of event professionals, allowing our teams to deliver our Inspired by You promise. It's our team's dedication to customers that has moved QHotels from silver to gold in the Best Meeting Product category, and for that I'd like to thank them.
"Over the past year we've made significant investments, including improving facilities such as high-speed, accessible Wi-Fi across the group, and have also launched a number new products, including our Meet Off Peak package, designed with customer insight and demand in mind.
"As well as listening to our customers, our QHotels Event Professionals Panel, which brings young event profs together to discuss the industry's big issues, has enhanced our understanding of what matters to industry bookers."
QHotels was also named No.1 Large Group for the sixth consecutive year in BDRC's 2016 VenueVerdict Awards, as the brand that conference and events bookers are most likely to recommend.
