Will you organize a Winners Ceremony?

We decided not to organize a winning ceremony or an award gala yet. We believe that all the galas and events are incredibly charming but they also make the awards extremely expensive for all the participants. Our team decided to focus on what is more important: the Nominated Properties. So we decided to create a more affordable and accessible Award and focus all our attention and commitment to the promotion and highlight of the best nominated properties.

How are the winners announced?

All the winners are going to be announced online in LOOP Hotel Awards website – – and also through all our Media Partners, social platforms and Marketing channels. Also, all the voting process is going to happen online in a dedicated platform and it will be an easy and simple process.
