Golden Jubilee Conference Hotel shortlisted for major industry award
Sep 17, 2018
The Golden Jubilee Conference Hotel has been shortlisted for this year’s Association of British Professional Conference Organisers (ABPCO) Excellence Awards.
They will now face Shocklogic and ICC Belfast for the top prize in the Best Industry Partnership category.
The hotel was shortlisted for the final due to its excellent handling of the three-day World Federation of Haemophilia conference and training event, in May 2018. This event saw 180 delegates from across the globe descend on the Scottish-based hotel to take part in a series of lectures, discussion and networking opportunities.
Emilie Rehel, WFH Conference Organiser, said afterwards that the Golden Jubilee team was "phenomenal" and that the staff "consistently went above and beyond the call of duty" to ensure the group was well taken care of.
Zico Iqbal, General Manager of the Golden Jubilee Conference Hotel said: “We are absolutely delighted and extremely proud to be nominated in the ABPCO Excellence Awards. This recognition is testament to the hard work and dedication shown by the team, who specialise in healthcare related conferences and events.
“It’s heartening to hear the positive feedback we get on a daily basis from our guests and we were so thrilled to learn that we’ve been nominated in the Best Industry Partnership category for our efforts in taking care of the delegates at the WFH conference.”
Now the Hotel could be on the verge of an awards double after it was named Conference Hotel of the Year in the 15th annual Scottish Hotel Awards.
The Excellence Awards final takes place, on Thursday December 13 at the Scottish Event Campus, where each entry will present their submission, prior to a final vote amongst their peers.
Kate Sargent, joint chair of the ABPCO said: “The shortlist is particularly exciting this year.
“There was a lot of new blood entering the awards and the panel’s choice reflects that – in fact every category has two newcomers.
“The result is that our audience can expect to see a lot of fresh ideas and innovation brought to the stage in Glasgow.”
She added: “I offer huge congratulations to everyone who entered as the standard of entry just keeps rising every year. Scores were tight for every category, which made the shortlisting process incredibly challenging.”
