Each year NEWH gives out its most prestigious award, the ICON of Industry, in November at the Gold Key Gala in New York City held in conjunction with HX: The Hotel Experience and Boutique Design New York trade fair and conference. The event is sponsored by Boutique Design Magazine and American Hotel and Lodging Association. The award celebrates the leaders of the manufacturing side of hospitality, those who have uniquely impacted the industry through their innovative work, consistently dedicated their time and efforts to community or industry outreach through education and/or corporate giving, and been doing business in hospitality for more than 30 years. In addition, a $7,500 annual scholarship is awarded to an exemplary student in the recipient’s honor. The scholarship recipients travel and lodging to the award gala is paid by NEWH, Inc.
