On Wednesday 18th November, CGA hosted The Big Peach 2020 Digital Experience: a day of fascinating talks, break-out sessions, networking opportunities and interviews. The event concluded with the annual Hero & Icon Awards which celebrates leaders in the hospitality industry across a number of categories. We were honoured to once again be presenting an award, this year for the best Newcomer. Although the virtual format meant we couldn’t celebrate in the way we would have liked, it was still a brilliant evening.
