This week, we introduce you to some of the brands supporting our celebration of travel media: Holland America Line & Seabourn, Avis, Destination Canada, Kuoni and Saga. You’ll be seeing more of them on Thursday 27 October when the Awards are presented at a sparkling ceremony in ME London Hotel. If you don’t have your ticket yet, what are you waiting for?

Managing director UK & Ireland, Holland America Line & Seabourn
Consumer Media Partner
At Holland America Line and Seabourn we really value our partners within the travel press, and the dedication and professionalism with which they approach their work – whether this is trekking through a jungle, sampling a city break, exploring the polar ice caps, or (of course!) taking a luxury cruise. Actually, you can do all of these on our cruises!
 We are proud to again sponsor the Travel Media Awards, which recognises the contribution of both individual writers and travel publications.
We think very highly of Giles Harper of Travega and the team at APL Media who do a fantastic job of hosting the TMA’s, which reflect the diversity within our industry. Good luck to everyone who entered!

Destination Canada is once again a proud sponsor of the Travel Media Awards. It’s a great event to meet our media friends in a more personal way and to recognize the wonderful work that they do in helping us promote Canada as a destination, whilst also recognizing excellence in the field of travel writing. We are looking forward to a great night!

Public relations manager, Kuoni
Category sponsor: Travel & Tourism Photography Award
For the second year running Kuoni is sponsoring the Travel and Tourism Photographer award. We were particularly drawn to this because stunning imagery speaks a thousand words and can inspire people to travel. The Travel Media Awards is a fantastic event to be involved with, and the ceremony provides the perfect opportunity to mingle with the travel media, make new contacts and meet up with old friends.

Category sponsor: Travel Trade Feature of the Year
Avis are delighted to once again be a sponsor of the Travel Media Awards. Travel trade publications are a wonderful platform to provide those working in the industry with the latest news, destination information and inspiration to the end customer. We at Avis embrace innovation and having the customer at the heart of everything we do is a core value we use to measure our performance every day. So supporting these awards that recognise those who talk daily with travel agents, inspire their teams and compel our customers to keep discovering new places resonates with what our teams do every day too.
