Four travel agencies received ITTN Travel Agency of the Year Awards on Friday night – Travalue.ie (Leinster), Harvey Travel (Munster), Grogan Travel (Connaught) and Oasis Travel (Ulster), with Travalue.ie being declared the overall winner of the 2017 ITTN Travel Agency of the Year award.
The trophy was presented to Martin Skelly, Managing Director, Travalue.ie, by Sarah Slattery, Irish Travel Trade News.
This year, Irish travel agencies were invited to self-nominate for these Awards by submitting a brief statement about their promotional activities and innovations during 2017, along with external and internal photos of their agency.
These submissions, and their websites and social media platforms, were then assessed by four judges – Joan Scales, The Irish Times; Sinead Grace, Tourism Ireland; Michael Flood, Editor, ITTN; and Sarah Slattery, ITTN – with the judging panel convened by a non-voting Chairman, Stephen Murray, Grant Thornton.
