Nominations for the Globe Travel Awards are open to bona fide frontline sellers of third-party travel products in the UK & Ireland and are limited to one set of nominations per individual. The shortlists and awards will honour those suppliers who have truly gone above and beyond during the pandemic.
Please nominate in any categories relevant to you and your business, taking into account factors beyond sales volumes, including the support you have received over the past 18 months in relation to customer liaison, rebooking and refunds, trade communication and training and broader partnership activity.
There is also the option to put forward nominations or entries for two special awards – The Penny Akam Unsung Hero Award and the Innovation in Travel Award.
Penny Akam Unsung Hero
This award, named in honour of Travel Weekly’s late Penny Akam, recognises individuals who have gone the extra mile to improve the lives of those around them – whether it’s working round the clock to help things run smoothly, fundraising for a cause close to their heart, or doing something exceptional in the community.
The winners are extraordinary individuals who deserve recognition – and it’s up to you to help give them it.
Innovation in Travel
This accolade celebrates those who’ve pushed the boundaries in any way, shape or form. The winner could be a person who’s spotted a ground-breaking opportunity and ran with it, a company who’s made their business more efficient with a new process, or any firm that’s created an innovative solution to a key industry problem – whatever you think worthy of recognition.
The ultimate accolade, the Outstanding Achievement Award honours the travel greats who’ve made a significant contribution to the industry. It can be any individual who’s carved out a distinguished career in the industry, shaping it for the better through hard work, commitment, dedication and the type of passion that makes the travel industry what it is.
The winner for this award is chosen by a panel of experts and will be announced on the awards night.
