8th ANNUAL SIMCOE HOSPITALITY AWARDS GALA 

We are excited to announce that the ORHMA Simcoe County Region is hosting its 8th Annual Hospitality Awards Gala on Wednesday April 15, 2020 at the Nottawasaga Resort & Conference Centre!  This is Simcoe County's 8th year of bringing together and celebrating some of the outstanding hospitality and tourism professionals in Simcoe County. 

As part of the ORHMA's commitment to professional development, our goal is to raise scholarship funds that will directly support students in 
Georgian College School of Hospitality, Tourism and Recreation programs. Through the generosity of our partners and community sponsors we have raised over $70,000.00
 to go directly to our students. 

Awards will be presented to the People's Choice Awards winners, Industry Awards Winners and our local chefs competing for the 2020 Silver Plate Award.
