Travel Weekly has teamed up with a range of supporters of the Globe Travel Awards to thank and reward frontline travel sellers and trade partners at the start of 2021.
Traditionally the curtain-raiser to a new year, the 2021 Globe Travel Awards were postponed for a year until January 2022 due to the Covid-19 pandemic and to allow the industry to focus on the process of recovery and rebuilding.
But to mark the biggest and most spectacular celebration of the travel trade, 22 sponsors of the 2020 Globe Travel Awards including consumer media partner Hearst UK have agreed to put forward an array of incredible prizes for a draw to be announced during a FREE virtual Globe Travel Rewards event exclusively for members of the UK travel industry on the evening of Thursday, January 21.
Stuart Parish, Travel Weekly managing director, said: “The Globes is an incredible night for the entire industry, with more than 1,200 guests in attendance, and after such a spectacular 2020 ceremony it was with a heavy heart that we decided to postpone this year’s event.
“However, we felt we could not let January pass without celebrating the relationships which are traditionally showcased at the Globes, and I am delighted that so many of our 2020 partners agreed so readily to help us do that with a virtual evening of rewards and thanks.”
Lucy Huxley, Travel Weekly editor-in-chief, said: “The Globe Travel Awards are always an incredible celebration of the partnerships that underpin our industry, with thousands of travel agent votes deciding our winners.
“The event has also always offered suppliers the opportunity to thank the frontline travel sellers and trade partners who support them with some spectacular prizes, so it seemed fitting that after a devastating year for the industry, we should mark the occasion and start the new year by joining forces with Globes supporters to give the trade a much-needed lift.”
