John Devereux, Travelopia Ireland, Wins ITTN Industry Achievement Award

John Devereux, Managing Director of tour operator Travelopia Ireland, was declared the winner of the 2018 ITTN Industry Achievement Award at the 27th Irish Travel Trade Awards.

The award honours the innovation and contribution to the Irish travel industry made by an individual selected by the Irish Travel Trade News team.

Michael Flood, Editor, ITTN, said: “The ITTN Industry Achievement Award was introduced four years ago. In 2014 there were joint winners – John Cassidy and John Spollen of John Cassidy Travel, in 2015 the honour went to Tanya Airey of Sunway, in 2016 the winner was Gonzalo Ceballos of the Spanish Tourist Board, and last year’s recipient was Tony Collins of Topflight.

“This year’s winner represented an airline for several years in the USA before returning to Ireland to join and head-up a multi-brand tour operating company, during which time he represented the Irish Tour Operators Federation for two years. In more recent years he has overseen a significant restructuring of the company, including a name change and the introduction to Ireland of a major long-haul tour operator brand.

“Our winner of the 2018 ITTN Industry Achievement Award is John Devereux, Managing Director, Travelopia Ireland!”
