Burba Hotel Network (BHN), host of the upcoming Hotel Investment Conference Europe (Hot.E), is pleased to announce that the nomination period for the second annual Hot.E Deal of the Year Awards is open. The deadline for awards submissions is 29 July 2016. Hot.E will be held in London on 26-27 September 2016, at the Hilton London Bankside.

The Hot.E Deal of the Year Awards were established to recognize the companies responsible for some of the most influential hospitality industry investments occurring in the European marketplace over the course of the past year.

The awards consist of two categories. The Merger & Acquisition/Portfolio of the Year Award will recognize an acquisition of a controlling stake in a portfolio of hotels, company, or brand ownership entity in Europe between 1 August 2015 and 29 July 2016. The Single Asset Transaction of the Year Award will recognize a hotel or resort in which more than a 50 percent ownership stake has been acquired (transaction closed) in Europe between 1 August 2015 and 29 July 2016.

The chair of the Merger & Acquisition/Portfolio of the Year Award committee is Charles Human of HVS, Hodges Ward Elliott, and the chair of the Single Asset Transaction of the Year Award committee is Chris Day of Christie + Co. Nominations will be reviewed according to specific ranking criteria by these two committees, comprised of hotel industry leaders. The finalist information will then be sent to Hot.E delegates for voting. Winners will be announced at Hot.E on 27 September 2016.
