“The Haute Grandeur Global Awards™ concept is simply unrivalled,” says De Wet. “We recognise excellence through guest feedback, as opposed to votes by the general public or a panel of judges. Unbiased results are guaranteed through a fair and transparent process. This is the Haute Grandeur way, and sets us apart in the world of Awards initiatives.”

“In the pursuit of excellence, healthy competition is key,” says De Wet. “Winning establishments are seen as the benchmark in the industry – they set the example, and emphasise the importance of always striving for excellence. This is vital for the sustainability of a thriving industry that creates jobs globally.”
