I hope their example will inspire others. I want to thank headline sponsor The Grand Hotel Brighton and the rest of our sponsors who made the Awards possible and our volunteer independent judges who gave their time and expertise so readily. Making decisions when the entries are so diverse and of such high quality is an unenviable task. I am looking forward to our winners taking on England’s best at the Visit England Awards.’


General Manager of The Grand Brighton, Andrew Mosley, said: ‘We were delighted to be this year's headline sponsor and it has been a real privilege to be the host venue once again.  It was a wonderful evening and as a hospitality operator, fantastic to join together the region’s best businesses for a night of celebrating successes.  Congratulations to all the worthy winners on the night from all of the team at The Grand Brighton.  Awards events like the Beautiful South Awards really help to shine a spotlight on the quality of the hospitality industry within the South East. It was fantastic to be a part of it.’
