HMSHost International Wins Eight Awards at FAB 2021 Superstar Awards

The annual Airport Food & Beverage (FAB) Conference is a highlight of the industry calendar stretching back more than ten years, and their prestigious annual Awards ceremony considered as the international 'Oscars' for the food & beverage sector in travel. 

With the impact of the pandemic significantly affecting the industry, this year's FAB Awards - the FAB Superstars Awards - looked to put the spotlight on the people behind the scenes; the thousands of everyday “heroes” and “heroines” who helped keep the Travel Food & Beverage industry up and running during the pandemic.

The excellence, hard work and team spirit of the people and teams in the industry have been rewarded by recognising the FAB Superstars in 5 categories: Star team, Star Individual, Star Story (team or individual), Innovation (team or individual), Humanity, Leadership & Inspiration (team or individual).

With pride, five individuals and three teams from HMSHost International were recognised through eight awards across the StarTeam, Star Individual, Star Story and Humanity, Leadership & Inspiration categories. A wonderful example of the people behind HMSHost International, and the spirit of our company!
