The CIS Excellence Awards 2020
in partnership with
The shortlist has been released for the 2020 CIS Excellence Awards, in partnership with Caterer.com. Delayed because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the awards – which should have taken place at the end of May last year – reopened for entries in the summer after the health crisis interrupted the nominations process in March 2020.
Although the awards recognise the success and efforts of hospitality and tourism organisations and individuals all over Scotland from the previous year, 2019, three new categories were added when entries reopened last summer. Reflecting the work undertaken by businesses and workers since the pandemic began, the Collaboration Award, the Innovation Award and the Social & Community Award aimed to highlight, publicise and celebrate the inspiration, selflessness and dedication of people during this period of unprecedented hardship and upheaval.
The list of finalists is provided below. While we are unable to commit to a traditional awards event at this current time, we do have a plan of action for when the winners are announced once the present period of lock-down is lifted. Details will be released in due course but if you have any queries please do not hesitate to get in touch in all the usual ways.
In the meantime, we wanted to thank all nominees for their time and efforts in entering and updating their entries, and we also wanted to thank the amazing Awards Advisory Board and our award sponsors, without whom we would not have been able to put this list together, especially in such exceptional circumstances.
