Ian Edwards named European Hotelier of the Year.
Celtic Manor’s Chief Executive Ian Edwards has been named European Hotelier of the Year 2015 at the European Hospitality Awards. Ian was the only UK hotelier shortlisted for the award and saw off competition from eight other leading managers from prestigious continental hotels like Le Bristol in Paris, Munich’s Charles Hotel and Rome’s Hotel Splendide Royale.
The award was judged over a period when Ian led Celtic Manor’s successful staging of the 2014 NATO Summit, the largest gathering of world leaders ever held in the UK. He also oversaw the development of detailed plans for a new Wales International Convention Centre, which secured full planning permission during the summer, and presided over another record year of growth at the five-star resort in South Wales.
