Celebrating the best in independent


International Week of the Host recognises outstanding hosts and properties across
the globe. The highly acclaimed event has been a long-standing success, with its prestigious award ceremony, the eviivo Awards, deemed “the Oscars of independent accommodation.”

Both International Week of the Host and the eviivo Awards have a single purpose: to raise the profile of the independent accommodation sector and highlight and support exceptional property owners, small hoteliers and hosts like you.

eviivo Awards 2022 Categories

You can enter as many applicable categories as you wish to help increase your chances of being shortlisted — and winning an award!

Hottest Property Award

Unique? Over-the-top luxury? Cool design? The Hottest Property Award recognises properties that simply have that “wow” factor. Whether they are forward thinking in design, or have super cool features, the hottest properties are those that go viral on social media. Show us your property is the hottest place of the year, and how you transformed it into a visual phenomena.

Unsung Hero Award

The Unsung Hero Award will reward the employee, nominated by owners, whom they rely on for their businesses to be successful – individuals who keep the business going, the glue that holds everyone together, and the virtual pillars of the property who deserve to have their time in the limelight.

Outstanding Host Award

The Outstanding Host Award is designed to recognise the owners, managers and hosts who not only go the extra mile but constantly exceed expectations for their guests and can demonstrate the building of a service culture throughout the whole operation of
the accommodation.

Donate to our charity partner the Family Holiday Charity to give a struggling family a much needed break.

International Week of the Host is about the people behind the properties; the faces behind the places. Whether they’re new entrants bringing fresh ideas to the sector, or veterans with years of experience, looking after guests is what hosts do best. We want as many people as possible to enjoy the warm welcome, professional service and local knowledge hosts
offer — and to experience for themselves the benefits of
staying independent.


International Week of the Host is brought to you in association with the B&B Association and presented by eviivo. Find out more about eviivo and its award-winning software for independent accommodation providers.
