Now in its seventh year, Ovation’s annual Huggability Award has seen the great and the good of the international MICE industry recognised not only for their achievements, but for their personality, their attitude and their downright loveliness!

Nominations are now open to find a worthy and huggable successor to the 2014 Huggability Award winner Chris Baker. “Chris took home the huggability crown last year due to his ability to get the job done no matter where the credit goes. Like any good destination expert, he exudes an unwavering passion for his home city of Chicago and always acts as an avid ambassador for the city. It will be a tough task this year to find someone as passionate, welcoming and huggable as Chris,” commented Aoife Delaney, Director of Global Sales at Ovation Global DMC.

As always, Ovation Bear will be sharing the nominations received for the 2015 award as soon as they are received. Keep an eye on the nominations board to see who is in the running to be crowned Most Huggable Person 2015.

Among the early nominations received are:

Kevin Hinton (Site Global)
Miha Kovacic (Slovenia Convention Bureau)
Ray Bloom (IMEX Group)
John Callely (Teeling Whiskey)

Nominations can be made before October 5th 2015 here and the winner will be unveiled at 11 am on Wednesday October 14th at Ovation’s IMEX America stand 2227.
