Annually, over 700 different properties are nominated and after a lengthy voting process by a key judging panel involving 50 industry professionals and travel media, the finalists and winners are then decided.

In the last 10 years, almost 5000 people have attended the HM Awards and more than 400 awards have been awarded to hotels across Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific.
