BGTW Annual Gala Awards Dinner

A Celebration of Travel – Empowered by Tenerife Tourism

The BGTW Annual Gala Awards Dinner is one of the major highlights of the travel industry calendar. Due to the pandemic, the 2020 event, which was due to be held on Sunday 1 November , will now take place on Sunday 31 October 2021. The venue remains the same; The Savoy, in central London, London’s most prestigious banqueting venue.

The changes brought about by the pandemic means a change of name for the event.

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 time 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.
