A huge THANK YOU to the 450 Nordic hospitality industry professionals on the BCA jury who voted us Best Publication once again. Our fourth consecutive win! And my congratulations to all the other winners. These awards are a recognition of excellence by others in the industry and in what has been a tough period for all in and around hospitality they're a welcome pat on the back.

The winners (see below) are decided by the BCA jury and were announced at the gala awards on Sunday April 24 at the Grand Hôtel in Stockholm, Sweden. Jakob Sundin, Co-founder of the awards BCA, expressed his delight at seeing everyone together again after the long absence due to the pandemic, and as he said, "A huge congratulations to all the winners and everyone that attended this year's gala." We very much hope to be there again next year.
