Judging line-up unveiled for 2024 Agent Achievement Awards

A stellar line-up of expert judges has been confirmed for the 2024 Travel Weekly Agent Achievement Awards, which will take place in London in association with headline sponsor Celestyal on Thursday, July 11.

Voting in the supplier-nominated categories and entries for the self-nominated categories will close on Wednesday, May 1, with shortlisted candidates in the panel-judged categories being assessed in the first week of June.

The judges bring an array of expertise from across the travel industry and related fields and will be challenged to select the winners of the UK & Ireland’s most prestigious agent awards.

Lucy Huxley, editor-in-chief of Travel Weekly Group, said: “We are immensely grateful to our judges for giving us their time to ensure the AAAs continues to be the pinnacle of success for travel agents in the UK & Ireland.

“We are busy planning another spectacular night of celebration and entertainment on July 11, and I would urge any suppliers who have yet to vote to do so in support of their top trade partners, and for any agents and agencies who are still to submit their entries in the self-nominated categories to do so as soon as possible.”
