Auckland hospitality awards cancelled

The annual Lewisham Awards, celebrating excellence in Auckland’s hospitality community, has been cancelled for 2020.

Organisers have stated that many hospitality employees and businesses are adjusting to the new normal post COVID-19 lockdown and therefore business recovery and morale is where the energy is needed most. 

“It is a time for listening, watching and thinking,” said a press release. “For new ideas and creativity to take shape.

“Let’s not spend too long on the ‘would have done’ and the ‘could have done’ let’s focus on the ‘we will do’ and ‘we can do’. We will celebrate, we will collaborate and we will drive change.”

The Auckland hospitality community will come together again in 2021 to recognise and celebrate the outstanding contribution of individuals and businesses.
