BGTW Annual Gala Awards Dinner

The BGTW Annual Gala Awards Dinner is one of the major highlights of the travel industry calendar. The prestigious event brings together around 250 BGTW members, ambassadors, ministers of state, travel and tourism CEOs and their top executives, PRs and key travel editors, journalists and bloggers.

The 2021 event, re-purposed as ‘A Celebration of Travel’ in recognition of the re-opening of continental travel after the hiatus caused by the Covid pandemic, was empowered by Tenerife Tourism. Details of the 2022 event will appear here in due course. Tickets include a Champagne Networking Reception, three-course dinner, with wine, and entertainment.

If you’d like to partner with the British Guild of Travel Writers to support the 2022 event, either as headline partner or in another supporting role, please get in touch by emailing BGTW Secretariat Benita on [email protected].
