Who in your senior team has gone above and beyond to navigate the challenges of the past 12 months? Submit your nominations for MCA’s Hero of the Year Award at the Retailers’ Retailer Awards for the chance for them to be recognised in front of their industry peers.

MCA’s prestigous annual awards return to London’s The Guildhall on Wednesday 23 March 2022 for a night of industry celebration.

There are 11 awards to choose from including Best Concept, Best Company and the Evolution Award. While two new categories have been launched for 2022: The Sustainability Award and Best International Newcomer.

The Hero of the Year Award will be given to an outstanding individual in a multi-site senior management team who has met every challenge that has come their way to navigate the business through what has been another challenging year.

Last year saw Stonegate’s Suzanne Baker awarded the Hero title, after she took up the additional mantle of property director and steered the company through its merger with Ei Group in the face of the pandemic.

As a leader in hospitality we need your help to shine a light on the most deserving individuals, deals, concepts and companies in the sector.

To nominate your hero, please send a 250 word citation to finn.scott-delany@mca-insight.com

MCA will then interview the nominator and publish five hero awards finalist articles.

The winner will be chosen by a special panel, with the articles used to decide the ultimate winner, who will be announced on the night.
