Leading figures from the travel and hospitality sectors were honoured at the British Travel and Hospitality Hall of Fame on Monday evening.
The event, organised by Travel Weekly Group, took place at The Dorchester hotel in London.
Inductees from the travel industry were 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 were honoured on the night alongside four 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 accepted our invitation to be inducted into the Travel and Hospitality Hall of Fame.
“There is no greater honour within our industries, and our 2016 inductees join 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 inductees into the Hall of Fame, three awards were presented at the ceremony.
The Business Achievement Award went to Jet2 and Jet2holidays, the Young Entrepreneur Award went to Harry Hastings, co-founder and joint managing director at Ocean Holidays, and Tom Axe of Benugo was named Young Manager of the Year.
