For the 13th consecutive year, the Worldwide Hospitality Awards are promoting the leading initiatives of the hospitality industry around the world. For this year’s Hospitality Awards, Blue Mountains International Hotel Management School has entered two categories, ‘Best Professional Success’ and ‘Best Educational Innovation’.

Ben Lancken graduated from Blue Mountains International Hotel Management School (BMIHMS) in 2008 after three years of study and industry placement. Ben gained three qualifications: Bachelor of Commerce in International Hospitality and Tourism Management, an Advanced Diploma in Hospitality Management and a Swiss Diploma in Hotel Management.

On graduation, the well-known Australian group, Toga Hotels recruited Ben. Impressed with his performance during Industry Placement and his work during his 4-year career with them, he is now the General Manager of the Travelodge Southbank and our nominee for ‘Best Professional Success’.

BMIHMS has invested more than $1 million to implement an ambitious innovation plan around teaching and learning improvements: Teaching and Learning Technology Support Program (TLTSP). The objective is to ensure that BMIHMS is embracing leading technology in teaching and learning to maximise the learning outcomes for students. It also ensures our graduates are familiar with all major forms of technology-based communications that the hospitality industry requires. The School has entered the category of ‘Best Educational Innovation’ based on our investment and commitment to innovation.

Our entries are now in the hands of the judges.
