CTC’s annual event honours the best media coverage, tour operator and more in the UK.
This year’s 23rd iteration celebrated 50 years of a tourism office in London via a ‘60s theme, including rose-tinted glasses, Polaroid cameras and other period props. The event took place at 30 Pavilion Road in central London on Dec. 13.
UK travel agents voted on two categories (favourite tour operator and favourite ski operator), editors and PR reps held the gavel for the media coverage award and CTC-UK ran the rule over the Explorer award.
Let’s let this year’s fab five take a bow:
Best Media Coverage
Sarah Barrell, Independent on Sunday
“Nova Scotia: a small province that’s big on adventure, culture and indulgence”
Outstanding Contribution to the Promotion of Canada
“Extreme Frontiers; Canada”
(Television series featuring Charley Boorman on a cross-Canadian adventure by motorbike)
“Canada has proven to be a consistently popular holiday choice for UK consumers for the past 50 years,” says Rupert Peters, CTC regional managing director, Core Markets. “As we highlight the country’s range of travel options through programs such as the Signature Experiences Collection® we are confident that Canada will continue to command the same passion for Brits for the next 50 years.”
