Group Leisure Awards 2016

Group Leisure has officially launched its 2017 reader awards, which is being backed by some of the biggest names and most recognised brands across the travel and leisure industry.

It doesn’t seem that long ago that Anton and Erin entertained, antiques expert Eric Knowles joined post-award partiers on the dancefloor, and the companies and individuals who took home the trophies at the 2016 ceremony described their wins as “proud moments” and “thrilling”.

So it’s no wonder that some of the biggest names in group travel have already signed up to throw their weight behind the Group Leisure Awards 2017 by becoming official partners.

The list of confirmed partners includes Warner Leisure Hotels, Travelsphere, Diamond Group Holidays, Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, and Switzerland Travel Centre, a brand new partner for 2017.

Voting for this year’s awards will open in the spring and culminate in another black tie dinner and ceremony.

You can expect a first class evening of celebrations and entertainment at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole on Wednesday 11th October.
