TTG Media is raising the bar for travel awards in 2020 with the launch of the all-new Travel Industry Awards by TTG, in association with Virgin Atlantic.
The programme, which replaces the TTG Travel Awards, is TTG’s most ambitious and wide-reaching awards programme yet, with new categories, a cutting-edge new venue and greater consumer appeal.
The Travel Industry Awards by TTG will include customer-focused categories in which suppliers from different sectors, such as cruise, tour operating and retail, will compete head-to-head.
Taking place on Thursday 10 September at Magazine London, beside the O2 Arena, the ceremony will showcase a spectacular celebration of travel alongside the awards presentation.
TTG Media CEO Daniel Pearce said: “After months of research and planning, the TTG Media team and our headline partner Virgin Atlantic are thrilled to be launching The Travel Industry Awards by TTG.
“Our new awards will deliver on a key aim of TTG’s mission to promote a Smarter, Better, Fairer travel industry by showcasing best practice in travel.”
Virgin Atlantic vice-president of UK and European sales Lee Haslett added: “We’re proud to be the first travel company to sponsor The Travel Industry Awards by TTG. Supporting the trade is key to our success.
“Virgin Atlantic has always had a challenger spirit, delivering great customer experience, and like TTG we must be flexible and courageous in our decision-making.
“These shared qualities are why Virgin Atlantic and TTG have both built respected, market-leading businesses.”
The new awards programme comprises three groups of categories, including trade-facing supplier categories rated by travel agents and judged by TTG’s Top 50 travel agents; supplier categories judged by expert judging panels drawn from the highest level of the industry; and individual travel seller categories.
