The 2021 HM Awards presented by Sealy Posturepedic will take place this Friday 3 December, starting at 7pm.

Finalists have been announced in 41 categories for the 2021 HM Awards for Hotel and Accommodation Excellence, presented by Sealy Posturepedic.

Once again, almost 50 HM Awards will be handed out in 2021, recognising excellence over a range of categories covering people and departments to properties and chains.

HM Awards Founder, Chief Judge and Editor-In-Chief, James Wilkinson, said the calibre of entries this year was outstanding and Australasia’s leading and only independent hotel awards would recognise some of the most amazing talent across the region.

“From the best chefs to resorts, lodges and human resources associates, the HM Awards once again has seen submissions from some incredible properties and people from right across Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific,” he said.

“It has again been a challenging year and I’m proud the HM Awards will be able to recognise the best people, departments and properties this part of the world has to offer.”

The team from Ovolo Hotels took home multiple gongs at the 2020 HM Awards

Over 1,250 entries were received in 2021, a new record, and many are still being judged by a panel made up of over 20 industry professionals and travel media.

In the last 18 years, over 10,500 people have attended the HM Awards, presented by Sealy Posturepedic, and more than 850 awards have been won by hotels across Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific.

Winners will be revealed at the 2021 HM Awards, presented by Sealy Posturepedic, gala presentation dinner at Sydney Town Hall on Friday, December 3, 2021.

A limited number of in-person tickets are available for the 2021 HM Awards, which will be the largest and only in-person national accommodation awards event to be held in Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific this year.

2021 HM Awards for Hotel and Accommodation Excellence are presented by Sealy Posturepedic; co-hosted by ahs Hospitality, the Blue Mountains International Hotel Management School (BMIHMS) at Torrens University Australia and Hostplus; sponsored by Foxtel for Business, DYSON, Sanpellegrino, Ecolab, FutureLog, HoneyBadger Technologies, ASSA ABLOY and TimeFlyz; and supported by the Accommodation Association (AA), AHICE, Tourism Accommodation Australia (TAA), TravMedia, Watson Farley & Williams and WAYFARER.

Hilton was a winner in the Hotel Brand of the Year category at the 2020 HM Awards
