Record interest in 2015 National Travel Industry Awards.
AFTA has just released details of the nominees for the 2015 National Travel Industry Awards, saying it had received “an overwhelming number of nominations across all 37 categories”.
There was particularly strong interest in the Best Travel Agency Retail – Single Location, Best Travel Agency Manager – Retail Single Location, Best Specialty Wholesaler, Best Sales Executive – Industry Supplier and the Emirates Travel Consultant Scholarship, according to AFTA ceo Jayson Westbury.
“It is wonderful to see that our industry is filled with so many individuals and businesses worthy of recognition,” he said, with nomination numbers at an all time high – despite the new requirement that agencies and agents nominated be part of the AFTA Travel Accreditation Scheme.
“This illustrates that there is strong support for ATAS,” he said.
Voting kicks off at 9am EDST tomorow, 18 March and will continue through until 5pm on Friday 13th April 2015.
AFTA has also confirmed that tickets for the NTIA gala dinner on Saturday 18th July will go on sale next Monday, 23rd March.
