Atas unveils shortlist for Recognition Awards

The Association of Touring and Adventure Suppliers (Atas) has unveiled the shortlist for its annual Atas Recognition Awards.

The winners of the honours will be announced at a ceremony during the Atas Conference, which takes place at a new venue: the Rum Warehouse in Liverpool’s Titanic Hotel (October 10-11).

Claire Brighton, Atas director, said: “It’s exciting to reveal the shortlist for our annual recognition awards scheme, which goes from strength to strength.

“I have joined experts in our sector to judge agents who were nominated for our awards and all those who entered were strong candidates for the shortlist.

“Those in contention for the awards have really made an impression on the judges with their efforts to sell touring and adventure holidays.

“Each Atas awards ceremony has a great buzz and I’m looking forward to another exciting evening in Liverpool, recognising the dedication of agents to our sector.”
