NEWH – Icon of the Industry

Each year NEWH gives out its most prestigious award,the Icon of Industry, at the Gold Key Awards Breakfast in New York City held in conjunction with the International Hotel/Motel & Restaurant Show in November and then again at the Platinum Circle Gala during HD Expo and Conference in May. The award celebrates the leaders of the manufacturing side of hospitality, those who have uniquely impacted the industry through their innovative work, consistently dedicated their time and efforts to community or industry outreach through education and/or corporate giving, and been doing business in hospitality for more than 30 years. In addition, each year an international scholarship is given to two exemplary students in the recipient’s honor, who have completed at least half of their program toward a degree in the hospitality industry, have a minimum 3.0 GPA, participated in an industry internship, and exemplify the highest standards of professionalism and scholarship.
