It recognises the highest achievers in the travel, hospitality, tourism and leisure sectors, honouring those who have achieved significant business success while inspiring and shaping the wider industry.

In addition to recognising those with a track record of success, the Hall of Fame also celebrates rising talent with awards for young managers and entrepreneurs.

Further awards recognise business excellence and commitment to sustainability.

Clive Jacobs, chairman of Jacobs Media Group, said: “I am delighted that we will be welcoming six outstanding and worthy members to the Hall of Fame this year.

“Membership of the Hall of Fame is the ultimate benchmark of achievement in the travel and hospitality industries, and our 2019 inductees have each represented those industries with distinction over many years.”
