A word from our guests…

“My favourite networking event of the year is the Travel Media Awards. It’s the one event of the year where leading editors of nearly all national media and trade titles and some of the most high profile digital influencers, photographers and broadcasters come together. It’s a celebration of travel media talent with everyone in one room — fantastic networking and great fun too!”

“Sainsbury’s magazine readers love food. Eating well whilst they are away is as important as the sun shining and their hotel room being bug free. And the magazine team work very hard to introduce our readers to new locations, fantastic hideaways and the best places to find delicious food whilst they are there. Winning this award tells us we’re doing the right thing, and doing it well which means an awful lot, it’s a pat on the back from the industry and that chance decision to enter was most definitely the right one.”
