The first Travel Industry Awards By TTG, in association with Virgin Atlantic, is moving to 2021.
The awards programme, which had been due to culminate in a ground-breaking event at new venue Magazine London this September, will now restart next spring – before the main event on September 15 2021.
All companies who were nominated or nominated themselves for agent ratings this year will now go forward to next year’s list.
TTG Media CEO Daniel Pearce said the decision had become inevitable, not only due to the impossibility of putting on large-scale events during the Covid-19 crisis, but due to the difficulties currently facing the travel industry.
“Together with our headline sponsor Virgin Atlantic, we had been planning a unique new celebration of the industry, by the industry – and it had become increasingly apparent that there was no way we could do justice to our original plans,” he said.
“More significantly, we felt this period was entirely the wrong time to go to travel companies to ask them to compile awards entries. Every one in the industry needs to pull together to build the new travel landscape at the moment. The TTG Media team would like to thank our sponsors for working with us on this decision – and we look forward to beginning our whole new awards programme in the spring of 2021.”
