The Boutique Lifestyle Leaders Association (BLLA) and sister organization, StayBoutique™, presented the 10th annual awards during the organization’s 1st ever Boutique Lifestyle Digital Summit. The Awards recognize leaders, innovators, and icons in every corner of the boutique world.

Founded in 2010, the Stay Boutique Awards originally served to recognize leaders of independent hotels globally and the properties themselves. The Awards have evolved to include other categories such as technology and design and others.

2020 marks the tenth annual celebration of the year’s most daring efforts in the boutique community with projects that extend the limits of what our sector can do. All winners will have taken risks to achieve what they whole-heartedly believe in, and that provides moments that define a cultural experience. Curating a boutique lifestyle is about the desire for discovery and the winners will be prime examples of this. #DareToAdapt is this year’s theme for the event.

We are grateful to the Judges for this year’s Awards as well as to all who nominated or submitted an entry. The reality is that new technologies and an increasingly connected community allow business owners to facilitate wholesome experiences to any demographic, no matter the establishment or product being vended.

The winners of the 2020 StayBoutique Awards are reinvigorating their respective spaces with novel approaches to marketing, innovative collaborations, and by embracing change during an exceedingly difficult time in the world. We are honored to present them with this recognition and acknowledge their winnings virtually this year while looking forward to future in-person celebrations.

The importance of such international awards and recognition is considered a distinction among the peers of a category and can clearly establish a hotel/firm/person as a force in your niche. Being selected is a high honor for recognizable achievements and influence in the industry. All awards come with global recognition through BLLA’s media reach into the boutique marketplace.

A special thank you to the Judges: Anita Chan of Compass Edge, Karen Loftus of Women’s Adventure Travels, Remy Allis of Allis Branding, and Amy Jakubowski or AJ Collective.
