The British Youth Travel Awards are our industry’s opportunity to reward our high achievers, gain recognition, and raise the profile of the work and individual successes of organisations engaged in youth, student and educational travel, to from and within the UK. Here is what our judges had to say following last year’s event:
“I am extremely impressed by the volume and standard of entries into the 2014 British Youth Travel Awards. The ability of companies, organisations and individuals to generate innovative and creative solutions that deliver on objectives against a backdrop of increasing complexity and increased consumer demands is nothing short of astounding. Congratulations to all of this years entrants and to BETA for continuing to champion the education travel sector.” Mark Daykin, Travel at Google
“ It’s always a pleasure to be involved in judging the BETA Awards. I’m always impressed by the quality, level of innovation and passion that goes behind so many of the companies operating in the educational sector and how it continues to inspires young people to travel and delivers real quality service- they are genuinely inspiring awards” Fiona Jeffery OBE, Just a Drop
“It was a pleasure to judge the entries for this year’s British Youth Travel Awards. The standout category for me was the Customer Services, an integral part of all of our businesses and the examples shown in the submissions were excellent, many congratulations to all involved!” Graham Mckenzie, Travelmole
“There were some really strong entries this year which meant the judges needed to be more critical than ever. But it was worth the time to read them all as there’s some impressive work going on in this industry.” Laura Porter, Freelance Travel Writer
The deadline for applications is Friday 30th October 2015 to allow the safe receipt of submission forms and supporting documents. Nominations will be scored by an impartial expert panel of judges and the winners will be announced at our end of year celebration on Thursday 3rd December at Westfield London.
