Independent Hotel Show announces winners of inaugural Hoteliers’ Choice initiative 


The Independent Hotel Show, which takes place on 16-17 October at Olympia London, has announced the five winners of the show’s new Hoteliers’ Choice initiative.  

Launched this year to provide an exciting opportunity for unique and innovative businesses, the winners will benefit from a complimentary stand package worth £5,000 at the 2023 event plus additional marketing and promotional opportunities.  

Nominated by hoteliers in the UK & Ireland and whittled down to five winners by a panel of industry judges and a public vote, the successful businesses are brands that inspire and bring value to the hotel sector.  

Independent Hotel Show Event Manager Glenn Wallace commented: “Hoteliers’ Choice is an incredibly exciting new initiative for this year’s show, celebrating truly innovative suppliers and exciting brands nominated by the end user. We’re delighted to unveil the winners and can’t wait for hoteliers to discover them at the event.” 

The winners are:  

  • Consensus Group 

  • Pet Hamper 

  • Malee  

  • Savyll Beverage  

  • Wildmore 

Zeze Oriaikhi-Sao, Founder of Malee, says: "Winning the Hoteliers’ Choice 2023 award is more than a milestone for us as a brand; it's a powerful statement. From the heart of Africa to the world stage. It signifies a shift in the industry, one that wholeheartedly embraces circular economies as we collectively craft a more sustainable future.  

“Our remarkable growth over the last 14 years couldn't have been achieved without the unwavering support of our cherished clients and the guests that have trusted us with one of the most important rituals in their hotel stay." 

Petra Clayton, CEO of CUSTARD and Hoteliers’ Choice judge said of Savyll Beverage: “Despite the drinks market being tough to crack, the story behind this brand is a great one. It’s great to see someone come up with an idea in their own kitchen and bring it to market.  

“The canned market for drinks is growing and their branding, story and positioning is great and perfectly timed to offer non-alcohol products. Ready to serve is great for in-room and I’m sure they’ll capture the attention of visitors.”
