BETA is pleased to announce the shortlisted entries in the 2016 British Youth Travel Awards.
Each year the number of entries increases as more businesses work to deliver innovative, high quality products and programmes for young travellers to and from the UK.
Emma English, BETA’s Executive Director said “I am extremely impressed with the volume and standard of this year’s entrants. Its a true testament to the quality of our industry and the organisations that operate within it. The judges had a tough time this year as scoring was very close – in some cases finalists were separated by just 1 point! Thank you to all that entered this year’s competition.”
Here is what our judges had to say:
“I was blown away by the passion, commitment and creativity of these organisations providing unforgettable experiences for young travellers, in UK and around the world. Well done all those shortlisted and to the worthy winners.” Mike Clewley, Cultural Tourism Officer, Greater London Authority.
“Travelmole felt privileged to once again be invited to judge the prestigious BYTAs. The calibre of the entries were extremely high, especially in the Customer Service category with several organisations going above and beyond to provide exceptional customer service that has the Wow factor. The Marketing and Social Media categories were jam packed with innovation, creativity and ingenious ideas that disrupt, connect and engage with the modern day consumer. One thing’s for sure, British Youth Travel’s Got Talent!” Helen Hays, Travelmole.com
“I was very impressed with the high standard of entries, particularly the high level of creativity that is being put into marketing campaigns.” Paul Richer, Genesys Digital Transformation
BETA would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the organisations that entered this year’s awards.
