Travel Bureau Gosforth scooped the top gong at a new awards ceremony hosted by Kuoni honouring the operator’s top-performing agents.
The agency was crowned Agency of the Year at the bash held at the Crazy Bear Hotel in Oxford on Wednesday night (5 June).
Kuoni’s eight awards celebrated agencies large and small, as well as the operator’s top luxury and long-haul agents.
National sales manager Brad Bennett said the new event sought to “recognise and reward” Kuoni’s “closest trade partners” and their “outstanding results” over the past year.
The awards were judged on sales performance over the past 18 months, as well as other factors such as customer service, innovation and overall “Kuoni-ness”.

“We wanted to make it a special occasion and send a clear message to everyone who attended we value what they do and we will continue to invest in supporting them,” said Bennett.
“Our approach is about long-lasting relationships and ensuring we are acknowledging all the hard work agents put in to support Kuoni and deliver phenomenal results.”
