The annual Hawke's Bay Hospitality Awards are back for 2017 and this year Hawke's Bay Today is sponsoring a new category - The People's Choice Award.

The award is a public vote and nominations are open now.

The new category gives the public a chance to have their say about the thriving Hawke's Bay's hospitality industry. It's a chance to vote for any establishment - the cafe that serves the best coffee, the bar that delivers service with a smile and a nice cold beer or the restaurant that you always go to on special occasions - not just because the food is divine but because the entire experience is a pleasure.

The winner will be announced at the Hospitality Awards night on August 14.
To have your say, email with hospo in the subject line. Please include your name and the establishment you wish to vote for. Please note: One vote per email address.


Nominations close on Sunday, August 6.
