Aspire Awards to return in December

Travel Weekly’s luxury sister title Aspire has announced the return of its annual awards ceremony this year.

The Aspire Awards, which celebrate the achievements of the high-end travel sector, will be held on December 13 at new boutique hotel The Londoner in Leicester Square.

The evening will honour the dedication and determination shown by outstanding individuals and companies in the past 18 months, recognising the best brands, most passionate trade teams and most innovative agents in the luxury travel sector.

The entry process for this year’s Aspire Awards has been streamlined to make it easier and quicker, with categories updated to reflect the challenges faced by the industry.

Entries are now open and will close on August 18.

Aspire features writer Erica Bush said: “The Aspire Awards celebrate the best agents, brands and representatives in the luxury travel sector.

“As the industry continues to emerge from an extraordinarily challenging time, we believe the individuals and companies that have worked tirelessly to look after their clients, often for little or no reward, deserve this recognition more than ever before. We look forward to welcoming Aspire Travel Club members to this event and celebrating together once again.”

The Aspire Awards are being held in partnership with headline sponsor Celebrity Cruises. Other sponsors supporting the event include Air Charter Service, One&Only and Silversea Cruises.
