We Sponsor AA Award & Promote Hospitality Energy Savings

by | Aug 14, 2018

Due to the energy-intensive nature of the industry, hospitality energy savings can be significant. That’s why Smarter Business helps over 125 hospitality businesses save money through its effective energy management services. (Read how we saved a popular hotel chain £250,000 through contract realignment here). With our experience in the hospitality industry, it was a natural fit for us to sponsor one of the award categories at the upcoming AA Hospitality Awards.

The AA are active in rating and setting standards for 15,000 hotels, B&Bs, restaurants and campsites in the UK; a scheme they have run for over 100 years. Each year the AA recognise and reward the excellence of hotels, restaurants and their respective teams across the UK at the AA Hospitality Awards – one of the industry’s most prestigious events. The event is a black-tie dinner held at the Great Room, Grosvenor House for 1,000 industry guests made up of leading hoteliers, restaurateurs and chefs.

This year’s awards, to be held on 24 September, will be a double celebration as AA Hotel & Hospitality Services marks its 110th anniversary. Smarter Business is sponsoring the ‘AA Restaurant of the Year’ category.

As one of the UK’s largest business-to-business utilities brokers, we know that ensuring the smooth running of hospitality businesses is an inevitably energy-rich undertaking. Behind the scenes, lighting, fridges, gas cookers, water heaters, air-conditioners, and appliances are constantly on the go in every successful hotel, restaurant, B&B, pub, and takeaway. It’s our goal to help these businesses save money in simple ways – without affecting the customer experience.
