2018 TTG Awards

Supplier categories

The shortlists in each of the categories will then be decided by agent ratings alone.

Agent rating is open to all travel agents in the UK and Ireland. You are invited to rate any company you have dealt with in the last 12 months. Please note that each agent can only give their ratings once, and no suppliers/operators/other sectors of the trade are allowed to rate. The results will be assessed to ensure that all ratings are by genuine agents. Agent rating closes May 16.

 

You must log in or register before rating suppliers. If you have any questions about rating suppliers please contact Kate Nicholls on 0203 714 4104 or email knicholls@ttgmedia.com.

 

These top-rated suppliers will then be invited to submit an entry form that will be assessed by panels of industry figures; the agent rating will make up 50% of the score and judges’ decisions the remaining 50%.

Only the top rated 6-8 companies will then be asked to submit a written submission online, and pay £199.
