THE RITZ-CARL­TON in Pow­er­scourt has been recog­nised once again by the pres­ti­gious meet­ings and in­cen­tive in­dus­try, win­ning a sil­ver award for the ‘Best Over­seas Ho­tel’ at The M&IT Awards in Lon­don re­cently.

Or­gan­ised by Meet­ings & In­cen­tive Travel Mag­a­zine, the event brings to­gether var­i­ous sec­tors of the MICE in­dus­try to re­ward ex­cel­lence of ser­vice and prod­uct. This recog­ni­tion for The Ritz-Carl­ton, Pow­er­scourt comes hot on the heels of two awards re­ceived in Novem­ber 2010 at the Condé Nast Jo­hansens An­nual Awards for Ex­cel­lence, when the ho­tel re­ceived the ‘Best Venue and Ho­tel that ac­com­mo­dates groups of over 100’ and the ‘Most Ex­cel­lent MICE Award for 2011.’

The Meet­ings & In­cen­tive Travel In­dus­try Awards gala pre­sen­ta­tion din­ner was es­tab­lished in 1988 and is held in Fe­bru­ary each year. Or­gan­ised by the Bri­tish Meet­ings & In­cen­tive Travel Mag­a­zine, the event brings to­gether key fig­ures from the meet­ings, in­cen­tive and events sec­tor to re­ward and recog­nise ex­cel­lence. There are 19 awards voted for by the read­ers of Meet­ings & In­cen­tive Travel Mag­a­zine, plus two spe­cial awards. ‘M&IT Per­son­al­ity of the Year,’ voted for by the in­dus­try and the ‘Ac­cess Ex­cel­lence Award,’ where or­gan­i­sa­tions nom­i­nate them- selves. More than 1,900 or­gan­i­sa­tions were nom­i­nated for the 2011 M&IT Awards, and more than 8,300 votes were cast.

‘ We are so proud of all the ladies and gen­tle­man of The Ritz-Carl­ton, Pow­er­scourt,’ said gen­eral man­ager Max Za­nardi. ‘It is fan­tas­tic for Ire­land and for Co. Wick­low to re­ceive this type of recog­ni­tion.

‘We are very happy that our com­mit­ment to the meet­ing and in­cen­tive sec­tor is be­ing no­ticed in so many ways as this type of busi­ness is very im­por­tant, both for the ho­tel, the lo­cal com­mu­nity and for Ire­land as a meet­ing des­ti­na­tion for in­ter­na­tional or­gan­i­sa­tions.’
