Corporate Travel Management has triumphed at the prestigious 2017 UK Business Travel Awards by winning Best Travel Management Company (£50m to £200m annual UK sales).
The UK Business Travel Awards are considered to be the ‘Oscars’ of the British corporate travel industry. They recognise and celebrate the achievements of the sector’s foremost businesses, teams and individuals, who have performed outstandingly in their chosen field over the last 12 months.
Organised by Buying Business Travel magazine, these awards are renowned for their robust judging process, scrutiny and impartiality. The independent panel of judges, made up primarily of business travel buyers, devote considerable time to review and mark each entry in order to identify those worthy of winning one of these highly valued awards.
Commenting on CTM’s winning entry, the judging panel said: “CTM demonstrated both strength and diversity, with a good bespoke offering along larger TMC lines, and at the forefront of technology and innovation”
The Business Travel Awards’ rigorous entry process required preparation of a detailed written submission. CTM’s entry this year highlighted innovative technology developments over the last 12 months including the launch of Lightning, the TMC’s proprietary next-generation online booking tool; CTM’s exceptional creativity in creating bespoke service models for clients; strong financial performance; and impressive 97 per cent client retention rate.
“Winning Best Travel Management Company is an amazing achievement for CTM as we were up against strong competition in this category,” said Debbie Carling, chief executive officer Corporate Travel Management EMEA. “This award is a tribute to our creative, passionate, talented and professional people who do whatever it takes for every client, large or small, to exceed their expectations and provide a personal, bespoke customer experience. We are all very proud.”
CTM UK was presented with the Best Travel Management Company trophy at the Business Travel Awards’ glittering gala ceremony on Monday 23rd January at London’s Grosvenor House. The event was attended by over 1200 leading business travel figures.
