News UK Travel Awards
Passion for Travel
The Challenge: To create our own travel awards spanning The Times, The Sunday Times, The Sunday Times Travel Magazine and The Sun, which reflect the passion our readers have for travel, and showcase who our readers feel are the best travel companies in the market. The trip spans 3 nights, culminating in a world class event and attended by some of the most senior people from the travel industry.
Working with the chosen tourist board (Malta 2013, Barbados 2014, Israel 2015, Las Vegas 2016), as well as an airline and hotel partner, we produce a busy programme of events to showcase the country at its best to the travel clients, whilst allowing lots of time for important networking. The programme in Vegas included a Maverick Helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon, racing round the track at Speed Vegas experiencing their top supercars, treatments at Mandarin Oriental spa overlooking the strip and a Top Golf VIP pool cabana and golf experience.
The piece de resistance is the high end awards ceremony held in a prestigious venue (Knight’s hospital in Malta hosted by Sir Ranulph Fiennes, The Cliff in Barbados hosted by Sir Garfield Sobers, El Hammam, Jaffa in Israel and The Chairmans Salon at Wynn Las Vegas).
80% said that they would prioritise attendance at our event over more established travel events
