The Travel Marketing Awards promoted and facilitated best practice within travel marketing. In recent years, travel marketing has experienced profound change. From the increased use of technology, to growing concerns from consumers about the environmental cost of travel, our industry has had a difficult job of keeping pace with these latest developments. In order to reach audiences innovatively and effectively, agencies have also had to become more adaptive in their approaches. Despite these challenges, travel is still an important aspect of people’s lives, our industry has continued to thrive, and our award winners demonstrated this in exemplary style. The travel industry has a very strong track-record of bouncing back from the many bumps in the road that we have experienced over the years and in light of the current coronavirus outbreak, we saluted the industry’s latest demonstration of pulling together to get through this unprecedented time. Our thoughts are with all those affected on a personal level throughout the world as well as with those in Travel who are doing an amazing job working around the clock to deal with this latest challenge.

The Travel Marketing Awards celebrated brilliance in a wide range of travel marketing disciplines and shone a spotlight on excellence, innovation and bravery at both a business and individual level. CIM was proud to be a Partner for the Awards, which honoured brilliance across 37 categories, in one of the finest ballrooms in London. 2020 looks to be a key year for marketers, with the role becoming more competitive and varied as marketers embrace: data analysis, changes in customer expectations, a drive for sustainability and the impact of the acquisition of leading brands across the sector. CIM’s mission is to help marketers in the development of their talent to stay up to date with the pace of change and to enable growth at an organisational level for the benefit of professionals, business and society.

The Awards celebrated excellence across a wide range of travel marketing disciplines. To reflect the changing dynamics of the industry, some very special award categories were added this year, including ‘Destination Brand of the Decade’ and ‘Travel Brand of the Decade’. We received a large number of entries and the competition was so strong that to be considered as a finalist for one of these awards meant displaying astonishing talent and creativity. Congratulations to all of our finalists. Whether shortlisted or not, all entrants should be applauded for their hard work. The Awards night was a fantastic evening, full of inspiration, celebration and laughter. Whilst this is a testing time for travel, it was great to see the industry come together to show solidarity and celebrate travel marketing excellence over the past year. Richard Carrick President CIM Travel Group

So whether you are using great storytelling to make emotional connections with travellers, or leveraging big data to disperse tourists around destinations to reduce overcrowding or showcase little known locations that are truly unique – we have courses and content to support you. Congratulations to you all. I hope you enjoyed this evening of celebration. Chris Daly Chief Executive CIM

best for… beautiful beaches

Patmos, Dodecanese islands Patmos is steeped in history. Said to be the place where St John wrote the Book of Revelation, its sacred sites have long been a place of pilgrimage for Christians. Today’s visitors are also drawn by its cosmopolitan edge (don’t miss the Aegean Film Festival, each July) and the Old Town’s nightlife, well-preserved mansions and trio of 16th-century windmills. Being a bit less straightforward to get to (the best ferry connections are via Kos), Patmos rarely feels crowded and its beaches are sublime. Kampos has the busiest beach scene – or hire a boat and escape to Psili Ammos. Prices are tailor-made; flights and seven nights’ B&B (six on Patmos, one on Kos) around £880pp, ferries extra, hidden-greece.co.uk
