Agent Achievement Awards 2024 shortlists unveiled

The shortlists for the 2024 Agent Achievement Awards have been revealed, with agents and agencies from across the UK and Ireland bidding for the trade’s highest accolades.

The industry’s biggest celebration of agents will take place at the Westminster Park Plaza Hotel on Thursday, July 11 and will be held for the first year in association with headline sponsor Celestyal.

The shortlists include agencies nominated by more than 100 suppliers, ranging from tour operators and cruise lines to airlines, tourist boards and ancillary companies.

Nominated and self-nominated categories also feature individuals from a wide range of companies and business models in addition to up-and-coming start-ups and those who have demonstrated outstanding commitment to sustainability and staff wellbeing and development.

Lucy Huxley, editor-in-chief of Travel Weekly Group, said: “Once again, the response from suppliers and agents to the Agent Achievement Awards has been fantastic, with hundreds of votes cast and entries received.

“We are incredibly grateful to our headline sponsor Celestyal, our premium sponsors easyJet holidays, Gold Medal, NCL and TTC Tour Brands, and all the other supporters of the AAAs, and we look forward to honouring the very best of the trade in London on July 11.”
