We are delighted to be celebrating our 20th UK Group Travel Awards and are thrilled to announce that our host for this
very special year will be Christopher Biggins. Known affectionally as ‘Biggins’!
From Porridge to I’m A Celebrity, Christopher Biggins has graced our screens for over 30 years. This multi-talented actor, humourist, writer and general raconteur counts the world’s most glamorous stars as his best friends and brings his own inimitable sense of humour and warmth to any production.
Each year the readers of GTO magazine are asked to vote for who they think are the best suppliers in more than 20 categories. From the pre-visit information and transport to get the group there to where groups stay and what they visit when they get there, all aspects of putting together group trips are covered. Voting for this year’s UK Group Travel Awards closed at the end
of January and we would like to say a huge ‘thank you’ to all our readers who returned completed voting forms. We are currently compiling the list of finalists and the nominations in each category will be announced in our March issue of GTO magazine.
Last year’s winners were announced as part of a gala evening of entertainment which included from the West End, Matilda The Musical, Roy Davenport (Fourth Generation Magician, and Member of the Inner Magic Circle with Gold Star) and back for the second year, the fabulous MadHen! Winners are never notified before the event and will not know they have won until the golden envelope is opened on stage.
Sponsorship of the Group Travel Awards is an ideal way to promote your company or product to group travel organisers and the travel trade.
A BIG THANK YOU to all our sponsors and supporters who took part for 2015. Benefits of sponsoring include free places at the gala presentation evening, photo opportunities with the celebrity host and the winner of your chosen category, exposure at the event through a prominent PowerPoint presentation, signage and also editorial coverage in the Review of the Awards published with the June/July issue of GTO magazine.
