AHEAD MEA extends 2019 submission deadline

AHEAD MEA, the awards for hospitality design and experience serving the Middle East and Africa regions, has extended its submission deadline to 31 May.

Accepting projects that have opened, reopened or been refurbished between January 2018 and February 2019, the programme will recognise visual and experiential achievements across dedicated categories for Guestrooms, Bar & Lounges, Restaurants, Suites and more.

Taking place at Caesars Palace Bluewaters in Dubai on Wednesday 13 November, the ceremony will follow editions covering Asia and The Americas, with the European edition taking place shortly after.

Judges will be looking for submissions showing rigorous and appropriate design, demonstrating a sensible use of budget to contribute to the guest experience as well as the ‘theatre’ of hotel life while satisfying the client brief.
