Hello Travel Industry Colleagues!

It’s that time of year again – when the UK’s best travel companies put themselves forward for a chance to win one of the 2023 British Travel Awards accolades across a whole range of categories. Hopefully you have all had a good “peaks” booking period and things are looking good for your businesses going forward.

We had amazing feedback from everyone who took part in the awards competition and who joined us at the BTAs 21/22 gala event in November - so we are of course looking to repeat and build on that success again for this year. All the usual categories are in place for you to enter for 2023, and we have brought back the hotel sector and airlines/airports categories due to popular request from BTA subscribed consumers.

This year the nomination window for you to enter your company into relevant categories will be open from 13 February until 19 May and you are invited to enter as many categories as you wish. Once again there will be a selection of small, medium and large sectors within certain categories – just ensure you declare your company size when entering according to the criteria set for each of these size defined categories.

Once companies are confirmed as entrants (follow us on Twitter for trade updates on confirmed entrants @BritTravAwrds) - they will receive:

  • The BTA “Nominee 2023” logo (giving your customers advance notice of your nominee status before voting begins in June).
  • The unique Direct One-Click Voting software and BTA 2023 “click to vote” logo so you can encourage customers to vote via for you with just one click from your own website and email comms.
  • Further, all eventual Bronze, Silver and Gold winners (announced in late November 2023 at the annual gala BTA event), will receive the official BTA Winner logo specifying the category and winning position - a valuable marketing tool for your brochures, adverts, websites, social media and direct comms.

Entering the BTAs is easy and full details can be found under the Nomination Application tab of this website. For the first time in several years we have had to increase the cost of entry for the BTAs 2023 and this is now £250 plus VAT per brand, per category entry. As usual, there are no criteria forms and submissions for you to complete - it’s all about the consumer voter numbers and by way of our one click voting software, plus the consumer facing brand-awareness campaign we run each with year with our media partners, you can be off and running your vote campaigns from day one!

Our database of subscribed consumer voters will be contacted directly to encourage them to have their say once voting begins on 19 June - and millions will be reached via the 13-week editorial and advertising campaign we will run via the print and digital platforms of our media partners at Reach plc.

Once again, along with the travel editors at The Mirror, Star, The Express and the larger regional titles of our partners at Reach plc, we will be offering consumers free entry into the voters’ prize draw to thank them for taking the time to vote across the BTA categories - and if you’d like to be involved in this initiative, please do drop me a line and I’ll send you the details.

Finally, the gala results night will take place in late November 2023 when all the winners will be announced. The event promises to be a spectacular occasion with A-list entertainment and celebrity host - and of course the chance for you to celebrate with your colleagues, peers and the best companies in travel - as voted for by travelling customers. Tables and seats will be available to book shortly, and we’ll keep you up to date with that.

We look forward to welcoming you to this year’s BTA competition, and in the meantime may we wish you all the very best for continuing business growth in the months ahead and of course, happy holidays!

Kindest regards,

Lorraine and the BTA Team
