About European Group Travel Awards:
The European Group Travel Awards (EGTA) was created by Tim Hentschel, CEO of HotelPlanner.com, and Peter Stonham, Editorial Director at Landor Travel Publications. Mr. Hentschel and Mr. Stonham organized EGTA to recognize the extraordinary effort and dedication that organizations in Europe put towards providing group travellers with exceptional travel experiences.
The concept was introduced into the marketplace by Peter Stonham who, with Group Travel Organiser (part of the Landor Travel Publications family), has been providing group travellers with information and ideas for group travel trips since 1988. The event in London, called the UK Group Travel Awards, is attended annually by nearly 350 attendees and awards are provided in 23 categories.
Subsequently, HotelPlanner and Landor Travel Publications also launched the European Group Travel Awards, which now in its sixth year, will take place on March 5th, 2020 at Hotel De Rome, Rocco Forte Hotels, Berlin, Germany. The European Group Travel Awards recognizes the finest suppliers on the continent that specialize in group travel.
HotelPlanner and Group Travel Organiser believe that the group market will continue to grow. Shared travel experiences with family and friends and by corporations and businesses help build more productive relationships and memories that last a lifetime.
