SPAA president Ken McLeod said: “The annual SPAA travel awards remains one the biggest events in the Scottish travel industry calendar and recognises those who are working so hard to support an industry which is a key driver of the nation’s economy.

“Every year, we give agents operating in Scotland the opportunity to express their appreciation for prominent companies in the travel sector which they have worked closely with. In turn, travel businesses across Scotland receive acknowledgement for their dedication to the industry that continues to prosper with their support.

“Our annual travel awards ceremony remains a testament to the commitment of our partners in the industry and is a celebration of their achievements and collaboration with other business in the sector.

“Every year, the travel industry in Scotland continues to build on its previous successes and as an association, it is our honour to be able to recognise such hard work.”
