HOW IT WORKS
Passion, recognition and excellence are the cornerstones of the HAPA Awards and we ensure that our process works to identify these trademarks in the industry.
Once a registered establishment has confirmed their interest, they are required to nominate themselves from a list of awards, before the judging period begins. Winners from our most recent National Series are automatically registered.
The HAPA Awards prides itself on its unique mystery judging system that has been in place since its inception. Each establishment is visited by two mystery judges* from our panel of industry experts and corporate travellers. Each hospitality personality will also be interviewed by two judges who will either conduct a food tasting and/or a full interview. Each judge submits scores based on our HAPA scoring system and the average between the scores dictates the final score for the establishment in the category.
These results are revealed at the series’ end, which culminates in a Gala Dinner that is held in the respective country. The HAPA Awards is a non-profit platform, and the proceeds from the Gala Dinner, along with other general donations are sent to a charity in the National Series’ country.
The HAPA Regional Awards Series has been held across a number of countries in South East Asia including Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam and the Cambodia.
