Best Stay event was launched in 2015, with the main goal of connecting the top hoteliers and quality suppliers in the region. Over the years, the event grew to become the “most concrete hospitality event” (in the words of Best Stay attendees), bringing together over 300 hoteliers each year and building up a community of leading hospitality experts in Europe.  

Best Stay is an event made by hotel leaders, for hotel leaders. Apart from having the Advisory Board made up of GMs of global hotels that influenced the Best Stay agenda, Best Stay Awards will be judged by seven senior representatives working directly in leading hotels. The eight categories that can be applied for until 5 October include: Hotel star of the year, The best new hotel on the block, “Simply the best” marketing campaign, Best Hotel Website, The coolest “Out of the box” hotel, The best next gen tech for hotels, The #1 hotel dream team and First-class hotel app.
