Advantage Travel Partnership honoured its agent and operator partners at its The Big Celebration Lunch.
Overall, 18 awards were presented to members and business partners at the October 6 ceremony at The Grange in London. A standalone award for Advantage employee of the year was also awarded for the very first time.
Julia Lo Bue-Said, managing director at Advantage Travel Partnership said: “This year we will be welcoming yet again individuals who have themselves been directly involved in Advantage over the years; celebrating the success of individual members and businesses partners nominated by their peers; presenting this year’s recipient of our Outstanding Achievement Award.”
“Last year’s inaugural event was a huge success and proved that the Big Celebration Lunch should be firmly placed in the industry calendar.”
Advantage chose to support the Together Forever Foundation with a prize draw raffle on the day. It is a cause that has been set up by Advantage member, Westoe Travel, to help the families of Chloe Rutherford and Liam Curry, who tragically lost their lives in the terrorist attack at the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester earlier this year.
The UK’s premier improv comedy troupe, The Noise Next Door, was the entertainment at the event.
