Awards for Professionalism

Engage: The Client

Institute of Hospitality (Northern Ireland Branch)

Enrich: The Brief

Deliver the 24th Institute of Hospitality Awards for Professionalism which are the longest established hospitality awards in Northern Ireland, recognising the success of individuals working in all sectors of the Hospitality, Leisure and Tourism industries. The project management brief included sponsor liaison, financial management, nomination and interview management, judging and event execution.

Elevate: The Outcome

Under Podiem’s management, and in partnership with the IoH Committee, the awards enjoyed an increase in numbers across the board from that of previous years. Specifically, there was a 17% rise in the number of nominations received, a 53% increase in the total number of scheduled interviews, a 35% increase in the number of attended interviews and a 10% increase in attendees (590). The awards also raised over £11,000 for nominated charity Leukaemia & Lymphoma NI.

A huge thank you for everything that you and your team did to help make the Institute of Hospitality Awards for Professionalism 2019, the huge success that they were. A lot of hard work went into the pre-planning of the awards and the production on the night – I think we all have a lot to be proud of.
