A critical feature of the Gold Medal Awards is the credibility of the judging process.

  • Every entrant in every category is benchmarked against a strict set of criteria.

  • The shortlisted are blind site inspected by the Gold Medal Awards judging panel which is comprised of respected industry experts from across the hospitality sectors.

  • Once the post site inspection scores have been compiled, the judges have a final meeting to decide finalists and ultimately the winners in each adjudicated category.
