WHY ARE WE DIFFERENT?

We have 40 categories in our LIVING section and 24 categories in the EATING section, making the LIV Awards one of the most comprehensive hospitality design competitions ever created. Our awards are dedicated to rewarding those whose work unites creativity, innovation, and enhances guest experience.

The LIV Awards are inclusive, not only dedicated to showcasing hotel and restaurant design, but also considering all LIVING & EATING spaces: from housing to short term residences, and fine dining restaurants to pop up bars, to name but a few. The LIV Awards look at architecture, interior design, guest experience, and examine both professional works, and future talents. This award is a powerful platform from which to promote your designs, to a truly international market.

GIVE YOUR DESIGN THE RECOGNITION IT DESERVES

No matter your project, becoming a LIV Hospitality Design Award winner sets you apart from your competition. Whether it’s your design credentials or a strong, sustainable concept, by carefully selecting the category you enter, you create a niche, making you stand out for all the right reasons. As an independent endorsement, a LIV Hospitality Design Award is an outstanding indicator of success.

NEW OPPORTUNITIES

The benefits of winning our award extend to excellent PR opportunities before, during, and after the award event itself. The LIV winners have a range of opportunities to improve their brand awareness and LIV actively supports the promotion of your business to design professionals and potential new clients worldwide. Our team has strong relationships with all the major design-related media, maximizing your company’s rate of PR exposure.

After winning, ensure you add ‘Award-Winning’ to your project description, and place it everywhere — on your website, your business cards, email signature, social media, and sales material. Sharing your win with the world is important, and sharing what your business has achieved through all your hard work is exciting, fun and, above all, well-deserved. Your achievement is important.

BRING MORE CONFIDENCE TO YOUR CLIENTS

Winning a LIV Hospitality Design Award will not only inspire the confidence of your guests and develop loyalty in this highly competitive market, but it will also stimulate continuous growth and development of your establishment. It’s a great way to differentiate your company from competitors.

HOW TO PROMOTE YOUR AWARD-WINNING COMPANY?

We know that social proof is one of the most influential factors in consumers’ decision-making. Consumer and Professional (third party) reviews are nearly 12 times more trusted than internal descriptions; winning the LIV Hospitality Design Awards is the ultimate review and testimonial.

Print your certificate and winner badge, add them to your website and share them as widely as you can across your community, whether on social media, a newsletter, a blog post, or through direct marketing.

Add the winner badge to your product package and to your design brochures. This is a fantastic marketing opportunity.

Issue a press release and send it to your local media and/or communication agency. The LIV Awards will also publish the official winners’ press releases on the LIV Awards website.

Add your winner badge to your email signature — your email signature is seen every day, by many people who may not know about your award. Just by adding a statement that says ‘Winner of the (year) (Award Name)’ is a powerful marketing technique, turning every outgoing email into a testament to your achievement.

Involve your team — by sharing your achievement, your sales and marketing team not only boost their own morale but also pass on the joy of your win with all their contacts and clients. Happiness is infectious, and sharing the results of your hard work is a perfect example: everybody is glad to hear the news.

Consider an advertisement. It is a common business technique to take out an advert to call attention to an awards win. Some companies also use this opportunity to congratulate fellow winners — sharing their joy.

As soon as you are a winner in the LIV Hospitality Design Award, that stays with you — the ability to add ‘award winning’ to all company descriptions cannot be understated, and it is a benefit that never ends.

To conclude, an industry-recognized award serves as a powerful independent endorsement of your company’s quality. Winning the LIV Hospitality Design Award is a serious competitive advantage and, more importantly, it is an evaluation that will bolster potential customers’ trust —  especially when coupled with your own internal marketing material.
