Jersey Hospitality Awards
The Jersey Hospitality Awards aim to celebrate the best that this industry has to offer and our annual Gala provides a great platform to do so. The event is a great way to come together to celebrate the end of the summer season and the successes of the year and we hope the awards will make it even more of a night to remember. Award winners will receive a JHA Awards trophy at the Gala and second and third shortlisted entries will be announced.
The awards are judged by a panel of prominent figures in the hospitality industry and wider business community chosen by the JHA committee.
