A pioneering agency owner, the head of a luxury cruise line and one of the industry’s most‑respected advisers are to be honoured as the latest inductees into the British Travel & Hospitality Hall of Fame.

The Hall of Fame is the true benchmark of achievement in the travel and hospitality industries, with new inductees honoured at a prestigious dinner organised by Travel Weekly and its sister title The Caterer.

This year’s inductees from the travel industry are Peter Stephens, founder of DialAFlight owner Lotus Group; Manfredi Lefebvre, chairman of Silversea Cruises; and Chris Photi, head of travel and leisure at accountancy firm White Hart Associates.

They will be honoured on the night alongside inductees from the hospitality sector: the ‘godfathers of British cuisine’ Michel and Albert Roux; Alastair Storey of food services operator WSH; and Robin Hutson of Lime Wood Group and Home Grown Hotels.

Clive Jacobs, chairman of Travel Weekly Group and a member of the Hall of Fame, said: “I am delighted that these seven outstanding individuals have accepted our invitation to be inducted into the Travel and Hospitality Hall of Fame.

“There is no greater honour within our industries, and I look forward to welcoming our 2016 inductees to a list of members who have all achieved outstanding commercial success and shown inspirational leadership in the industry sectors they serve.”

In addition to the inductions into the Hall of Fame, three awards will also be presented on the night, for Young Manager and Young Entrepeneur of the Year, and for Business Achievement of the Year.

The 2016 Hall of Fame takes place on Monday, April 25, at the Dorchester Hotel on London’s Park Lane. To book tickets, visit bthhof.com.
