Irish Travel Trade Awards Celebrate 21 Years

The numerous industry principles who attended last year’s event were effusive in their praise – and this year’s event will be even better! This year’s 21st Anniversary event will be Black Tie (so dress to impress!), guests will be greeted by a special ‘Santa Claus’, and the Headline Sponsor will be Emirates.

Mark Evans, Travel Editor of the Evening Herald, wrote of last year’s event: “Despite tough times in the sector, the travel industry celebrated the best in the business at the Irish Travel Trade Awards last night. The glitzy ceremony and inaugural Irish Travel Industry Christmas Party, held in the Burlington Hotel, played host to the top names in travel, all vying for coveted prizes at the end-of-year bash.”

Christine Donnelly of Falcon/Thomson Holidays said: “I am absolutely amazed by the buzz, the excitement and the great atmosphere that has been created,” while Alan Sparling of SAS added: “This is an absolutely fabulous evening and is one of the best I have been to – I have met lots of people whom I haven’t seen for a while.”
