Munich, 28th July 2017 – 50 hotel properties in 12 European countries have applied for the “Hotel Property Award 2017”, which is to be presented on 6 October as part of hotelforum. This means record participation for the “Hotel Property Award” competition, which is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year.

This year too, the majority of applications have come from the hotel market in German-speaking countries, i.e. from Germany (35), Austria (2) and Switzerland (2). Having said that, the award is gaining increasing international popularity, with 11 applications coming from France (2), Georgia (1), Greece (1), the United Kingdom (1), Italy (2), Norway (1), Russia (1), Sweden (1) and Spain (1).

As in previous years, the vast majority of applications have come from city hotels. Participation by holiday hotels and resorts is however continuing to grow, reaching a total of 11 in 2017. The range of applications, which includes hostel concepts, extended-stay hotels as well as luxury hotels in cities and also resorts, is becoming wider every year.

Andreas Martin chairs the hotelforum jury: “I am personally highly gratified at the record number of entries from 50 newly-opened hotels on our 15th anniversary. The increasing diversity of the hotels located across 12 countries, reveals the creativity and internationality of the hotel industry! Of particular interest are more and more new concepts to attract potential Airbnb customers, as well as budget hotel concepts being successfully implemented in holiday hotels.”

The award competition targeted hotel developers, owners and operators of hotels which were opened between January 2016 and June 2017. The competition is reaching out to hotels which stand out from their competitors through a successful overall approach consisting of architecture, design and innovation.
