At the IASI awards beaming with delight: Mary Patterson, Verona Pentony, Sinead Grogan, Tommy Gilsenan and David Ferguson with IASI president Innes Guerra

Momentum is once again extremely proud to announce success at the annual Irish Accommodation Services Institute (IASI) Award ceremony. Each entrant is exhaustively and independently assessed and only those that reach the high standards of the awards can win.

The IASI was set up in 1985 to promote best practice across the accommodation field. Their annual awards are one of the big calendar events in the Accommodation Industry, and once again all the hard work and dedication of Momentum staff have been recognized at the 2017 awards.

A win like this is not only achieved on the day of judging, nor is it achieved by one person. It is thanks to the combined efforts of the Momentum team that we continue to succeed each year at the awards.

As Napoleon Hill said “There is one quality which you must possess to win, and that is definiteness of purpose, the knowledge of what one wants, and a burning desire to possess it”.
