In the annual AA Hospitality awards on 27th September 2021, the Outstanding Contribution to the Industry Award was awarded to David Weston, Chairman of the B&B Association, "for his work championing bed and breakfasts throughout his career, with particular recognition for his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic".
Simon Numphud, Managing Director at AA Media said: "We are delighted to recognise the hard work and dedication of David Weston, who receives the Outstanding Contribution to the Industry Award. David has been a stalwart champion of bed and breakfasts, and this award acknowledges his work helping to steer the industry and maintaining the high standards we celebrate today."
Accepting the Award, David Weston said: "Thank you AA Hospitality for honouring me with this amazing award. I'm really touched and overwhelmed. It's been such a difficult year - and I'm just pleased that, in a small way, I may have been able to help some of the B&Bs and guesthouses that are really the lifeblood of our British tourism sector. So thank you very much, best wishes to everybody watching, and let's all hope for rapid recovery and a much better year in 2022!"
