Over 200 elite professionals gathered at the Exchange Hotel Cardiff, on Sunday 25th November to celebrate their achievements at the Welsh Hospitality Awards to recognise the growth of the country’s hospitality industry.
The coveted awards acknowledged the commitment of local professionals and establishments, from restaurants, bars, hotels to festivals and venues that have stood out from the rest due to their dedication to customer satisfaction.
Parc y Scarlets is one of the premier conference and events venues in West Wales. As well as being home to Scarlets Rugby we also offer first class facilities for non-match day events including dinners, concerts and exhibitions.
Hosting over 500 events every year, with an average rugby attendance of over 10,000 in 2017-18 season and crossing the threshold of 1 million rugby tickets sold, Parc y Scarlets was named Sports Venue of the Year 2018.
Up against prestigious venues such as Principality Stadium and Chepstow Racecourse Parc y Scarlets was awarded for recent successes with the top award.
Parc y Scarlets General Manager Carrie Gillam said; “It was a huge honour to be nominated in this category and to be up against such iconic venues as the Principality Stadium.
“Parc y Scarlets is synonymous with rugby but we have a huge array of events in our back catalogue, from international football to live music events that showcase the stadium as the premier conference and events venue in West Wales.
“Winning such a prestigious award is a privilege but is also fantastic recognition of the hard work done by our small team of dedicated staff.”
A Spokesperson for the Welsh Hospitality Awards 2018 said: “The Welsh hospitality industry has grown significantly over the years and this has introduced new challenges to the professionals who work within this sector. The customer expectations have been increased but these winners are the experts in meeting their customers’ needs and demands.
“The winners, chosen by members of the public, are a true reflection of the commitment, quality and impeccable customer service that flow in the hospitality industry. The awards also showcased those individuals that work tirelessly to achieve industry leading success, client satisfaction and all these while promoting excellence in the hospitality sector.
“We would like to congratulate all winners and finalists for their amazing achievements.”
