2020 was both a tumultuous and momentous year for TTG as they finely honed and shored up their Travel Industry Leadership credentials with a number of major projects and initiatives. They were the first in that industry to rally the sector together via dedicated Coronavirus Hub Page and facilities. They also led the #savetravel initiative which triggered and influenced government debate. Moreover TTG introduced their new Digital Print Archive as part of their newly launched Subscription offering.
The 2020 Travel Media Awards were actually just held this past Monday, and TTG took two of the big prices, for both Print AND Online Trade Publication of the Year. The Affino team also feels a sense of pride at this achievement since so much of what TTG delivers goes through Affino.
The TTG team have also picked up a host of individual honours throughout the year, along with several commendations, and notable mentions at a number of industry Award.
TTG editor Sophie Griffiths was recognised as a Travel Media Champion for her work pushing forward the sector’s point of view amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Then TTG freelance writer James Draven won both the ’Trade Writer of the Year’ and ’Trade Feature of the Year’ Awards, the latter for his piece ’Ahead for heights’.
Finally TTG news editor Jennifer Morris and deputy news editor James Chapple were also shortlisted in the Trade Writer of the Year category, with Chapple further shortlisted in the Breaking Travel News category.
A huge congratulations to TTG from all of Team Affino - we’re very proud to have shared this journey.
