QHotels were recognised last night at the Meetings & Incentive Travel (M&IT) Awards, one of the events industry's most important calendar dates.

The group of 27 luxurious hotels, gained a silver award in Best Venue Group Meeting Product, and the iconic Manchester hotel The Midland won bronze in the Best UK Hotel category

The prestigious M&IT Awards, organised by Meetings & Incentive Travel Magazine and voted for by its readers in the meetings, events and conferencing industry, are the only independently verified and audited event industry awards programme.  The 19 categories celebrate the various sectors of the industry.

The awards ceremony took place at Battersea Evolution, London on 3rd March 2015.

Michael Purtill, Managing Director of QHotels, said: "Awards that are based on customer opinions are really important to us and we're absolutely thrilled to have been recognised at the  M&IT awards. Not only that, but on the awards evening, we also picked up our Venue Verdict awards for Gold Standard Group, No.1 Large Group and Number One Hotel for Ashford International Hotel, so it really has been a great start to the year"

Michael Magrane, General Manager at The Midland Hotel said: "We are absolutely thrilled with our position in the Best UK Hotel category. 2015 is off to a flying start, as we also recently received Gold Standard Accreditation from VenueVerdict, which is based directly on delegate feedback, Mr.Cooper's House and Garden restaurant bar was featured in Conde Nast Traveller's Gold List for Best Cocktail Bars and The French was recently placed in the top 25 best restaurants in the whole of the UK by Square Meal.

Organised by Meetings & Incentive Travel (M&IT) magazine, the awards brings together all sectors of the industry to measure market reaction in rewarding excellence of service. The M&IT Industry Awards are the only awards in the meetings industry that is driven purely by user votes alone.

QHotels also picked up its VenueVerdict awards on the evening - yet another meetings, events and conferencing industry accolade. The VenueVerdict Awards are based on rigorous research conducted by BDRC Continental, the UK's largest independent market research agency, and look at how likely guests are to recommend venues.  The hotel group scooped three of the top hotel accolades as well as nine of the group's hotels (including The Midland) receiving Gold Standard Accreditations - the most the group has ever received.
