The winners of the 2021 AHA (WA) Bankwest Hospitality Supplier and Legends of Hospitality Awards have been revealed, celebrating industry excellence across WA’s hospitality sector.

The Crown Towers Ballroom again hosted the Perth Airport Gala Dinner, where the 2021 finalists and winners were acknowledged in front of almost 400 attendees.

Australian Hotels Association (WA) CEO Bradley Woods said in light of the challenges faced by the industry over the past 12 months, the 2021 awards were particularly important in helping recognise industry suppliers who helped keep WA’s hotels, bars, pubs, taverns and restaurants afloat.

“WA’s hotel and hospitality industry navigated the COVID-19 crisis extraordinarily well, due in large part to the extraordinary assistance and agility shown by industry suppliers,” Mr Woods said.

“Businesses servicing WA’s hotel and hospitality industry played a critical role in keeping venues open and trading by working closely with their clients, demonstrating flexibility with accounts, waiving fees and allowing stock to be returned.”

“Their understanding and direct financial assistance allowed venues to pivot quickly, saving many thousands of jobs.”

“While we still face a recovery period ahead to recoup the losses of the past year, our industry is well placed to rebound strongly, with industry suppliers having passed their most difficult challenge in living memory.”

“For just the second time, this year the AHA were pleased to announce new recipients of the esteemed Legends of Hospitality Awards, recognising individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to the hospitality industry and their local community.”

The 2021 Legends of Hospitality Inductees are:

  • George Kailis
  • Michael Keiller
  • Karl Bullers

The 2021 Ross McGovern Hospitality Industry Achievement Award was presented to Mike Stubber, WA State Manager of Liquor Marketing Group.
