Prestigious Star Awards


We engage the foremost industry leaders to examine and promote excellence, to revive old-world values, to boost innovation, and to shape the future of premium hospitality.

The Prestigious Star Awards celebrate the quality, performance and reputation of the world’s best venues and suppliers qualified to host the most memorable events. As the only global luxury venue industry awards, every year the world’s leading venues and event suppliers are nominated. The program puts the nominees in front of the public, event bookers and Prestigious Venues ambassadors through online voting. The award of a ‘Prestigious Star’ is presented to one elected winner in each category at the awards evening that takes place at one of London's most prestigious venues every year. The Prestigious Star Awards are conducted by Prestigious Venues - the global venue platform enabling clients to benchmark and book distinguished event spaces across the world.
