Friday 3 June 2016, Park Plaza Riverbank London
On Friday 3rd June, almost 400 travel trade professionals attended the prestigious 2016 Group Travel Awards, which took place as part of a glittering gala presentation evening at the Park Plaza Riverbank Hotel, London. 2016 saw us celebrating our 20th Group Travel Awards and our fabulous host for this very special year was Christopher Biggins.
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.
Winners are never notified before the event and do not know they have won until the golden envelope is opened by our sponsors on stage. You can view a full list of results by clicking the tab above.
Landor Travel Publications will be publishing a separate supplement with the combined June/July issue of GTO magazine reviewing the Awards Evening. As well as depicting a photographic record of the evening, it will also describe each award including the details of winners, and a list of runners-up and finalists, devoting a page of highly focused editorial coverage to each category.
A BIG THANK YOU to all our sponsors and supporters who took part for 2016. 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.
