The Lewisham Awards return for 2016

Lewisham_logo_greyThe Lewisham Awards committee are pleased to announce the launch of the 2016 Lewisham Awards. The nomination stage is open and they are looking forward to seeing who is going to get “the nod” this year.

The Lewisham Awards celebrate excellence within the Auckland Hospitality sector and for the past 14 years those working in this exciting and ever changing industry have taken the opportunity to have their say as to who they think are the best of the best in 17 different categories.

This year organisers are very excited to be able to include another category, “Outstanding Street Food” which highlights the evolving and adaptable face of the hospitality and dining cultures within Auckland.

With this year’s theme being ONE NIGHT IN VEGAS, the awards ceremony and infamous after party are set to be yet another night to remember, with live music, DJ’s, street food and over five hundred hospitality professionals celebrating the best of Auckland hospitality.

The Langham Hotel’s Great Room will play host to this year’s awards as well as the after party on Sunday, 5th June. Attendees will enjoy the opportunity to celebrate each other’s success in such glamorous surroundings.

No awards ceremony can take place without the support of key sponsors and the Lewishams are very lucky to have had the ongoing support of many sponsors over many years. This year the 18 categories and the amazing sponsors that make it possible are noted below:
