BGTW Annual Gala Awards Dinner 2020 – in partnership with Tenerife Tourism

The BGTW Annual Gala Awards Dinner is one of the major highlights of the travel industry calendar. Due to the pandemic, this year’s event, due to be held on Sunday 1 November 2020 at The Savoy in central London, will now take place on Sunday 14 March 2021.

The prestigious event, brought to you with Tenerife Tourism, will bring together more than 300 BGTW members, ambassadors, ministers of state, travel and tourism CEOs and their top executives, PRs and key travel editors, journalists and bloggers, to network in the glamorous surroundings of the famous Lancaster Ballroom.

During the evening, which starts with a Champagne Networking Reception, extended this year to give more time to mingle, we’ll find out which tourism projects have won the BGTW International Tourism Awards (ITA). We’ll also discover who has won the prestigious BGTW Members’ Excellence Awards (MEA). On top of all of that you’ll enjoy some first-class food, entertainment and one or two surprises.

We look forward to seeing you there!
