The eagerly awaited shortlist of entries for the 2016 Business Travel Awards has been announced.
More than 80 companies, teams and individuals, have made it through to the final stage of the judging process, which takes place in November.
Mike Toynbee, chairman of the judging panel, was delighted with not only the record number of entries received, but also the quality. The response this year has been the best ever – in one category alone we had in excess of 30 entries – and the standard has never been better.
“The judges certainly had their work cut out and drawing up the shortlist proved harder than ever, with the top contenders in some categories separated by a mere point or two.”
It is now up to the judges to deliberate on the details for which of the finalists will be named as the winner in each category. The results of their deliberations will be announced at the awards ceremony and gala dinner, which takes place at London’s Grosvenor House, a JW Marriott hotel, on Monday, January 18, 2016.
Attendance is an absolute must, whether or not you are in line for an award: it is the perfect opportunity to entertain clients and staff, to network with industry peers, and to catch up with old friends and contacts, and to make new ones.
