Celebrating its tenth year, the call for entries for the 2018 Travel Marketing Awards is now open, with winners set to be named at a ceremony at the London Hilton on Park Lane on 12 March 2018.
The change from the Grosvenor House to a larger event space at the London Hilton on Park Lane reflects the continued growth of the Travel Marketing Awards, originally created by Institute of Marketing’s Travel Group (CIM Travel Group).
The accolades recognise the most original, creative, innovative and best performing advertising, marketing and digital campaigns, such as Best Trade Press Advertising, Best Use of Social Media, Integrated Campaign of the Year and three Travel Brand of the Year Awards.
In response to feedback from the industry, several new categories have been added, such as Best Marketing Agency, Best Representation Agency, Best PR Agency and Best Use of Technology, bringing the number of awards to 39.
The Travel Marketing Awards are open to any company that has carried out travel marketing over the eligibility period, including in-house marketing and PR teams, design consultancies, digital agencies, PR companies, integrated agencies, media companies and more.
