2023 Awards

Each year, AHEAD - the leading Awards for Hospitality Experience and Design - comprises four regional annual awards programmes, celebrating the achievements of those shaping the hospitality industry across the Middle East & Africa (MEA), Asia, the Americas, and Europe.

The winners of AHEAD MEA 2023 were announced at the ceremony at W Dubai, The Palm on 28 September. Scroll down to view the official event gallery!

Once this year's regional winners have been announced, the very first AHEAD 100 list will be unveiled; our new annual list showcasing the best new hotels in the world. A judging panel - comprising architects, interior designers, hoteliers, and industry commentators from across the globe - will then decide the final 10 best-of-the-best, before selecting the winner of the Ultimate Accolade, announced on 20 November.
