The British Guild of Travel Writers announced the the winners of the 2020 BGTW International Tourism Awards (ITAs) and 2020 BGTW Members’ Excellence Awards (MEAs) in a special online event, BGTW’s Really Big Reveal, on 18 April 2021.

The broadcast was made possible thanks to support from Tenerife Tourism, with additional sponsorship for the MEA from Explore Charleston, and for the ITA from Travel Connection Group. Also appearing were Franck Arnold, the managing director of The Savoy, David Perez, CEO of Tenerife Tourism, and Doug Warner, director of media relations at Explore Charleston.
Commenting on the broadcast, Stuart Render, BGTW’s awards director, says: “Thanks to some magnificent creative input from Guild member Jon Holmes, the camera and editing prowess of Michelle Tofi, presenting gigs by Guild members, and the involvement of The Savoy and Explore Charleston, we were able to deliver an entertaining and light-hearted broadcast that followed on from our ‘Big Reveal’ broadcast last November.
“I’d like to give my heartfelt thanks to everyone involved in bringing this project to fruition, as well as offering my congratulations to all our winners. We now look forward to all getting together at The Savoy on Sunday 31 October for ‘BGTW’s Annual Gala Awards Dinner – A Celebration of Travel.’ The event, empowered by Tenerife Tourism, will be an opportunity to network and reconnect, something I feel we’re all really looking forward to. You’ll be hearing more about all of that in the months ahead. As for the next BGTW awards, watch out for details in 2022.”
