The event will feature exclusive video content from the AHEAD Americas nominees, as well as from the judges and sponsors of the awards programme.
The ceremony is taking place digitally rather than at a real-world event due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Championing standout hospitality projects from around the world, the AHEAD awards focuses on four different regions: the Americas, Asia, Middle East and Africa (MEA) and Europe.
The 2020 AHEAD Americas competition will review projects that have opened, reopened or launched in the continent between November 2018 and December 2019.
