Awards Sponsors

Jetset

Jetset are once again delighted to be the voting form sponsor. As a trade only supplier Jetset are always keen for agents to make their voices heard loud and clear and The Travel Bulletin Star Awards are the perfect opportunity for an agent to do just that!

Jetset have been involved in the Star Awards for a significant number of years and have watched the event grow in size and stature. It is now rightly seen as one of the top industry nights in the calendar. Held at the beautiful Landmark Hotel the Star Awards are a great event and when you throw in the entertainment that the event is now famous for, you are guaranteed a brilliant night out with industry colleagues and clients.

Jetset have been fortunate to be shortlisted in a number of categories for the last five years. An even better tribute to the team at Jetset is how in the last four years we have been awarded Star Scheduled Seat Only Operator on three separate occasions. This naturally fills Jetset with pride and satisfaction but also real motivation to carry on being the leaders in providing the service and systems that truly help the trade succeed.

Thanks for taking the time to vote !

 


Attractionworld

Attraction World is always delighted to be involved in key industry events such as the Travel Bulletin Star Awards and is proud to be sponsoring once again both Star Worldwide and Star European Theme Park/Attraction Awards. Naturally being a B2B business we are keen to support and encourage agents to sell attractions to the best of their ability and we do this in conjunction with key partners including the main USA and European theme parks - so sponsoring these awards is our way of saying thank you to our partners for their commitment to Attraction World and indeed to the UK travel trade.

As per the above Attraction World is 100% committed to the UK travel trade and to helping agents make the most of the sales opportunities available to them through ancillaries. There are so many advantages of pre-purchasing attractions/excursions/gift experiences to both the customer and the agent and it’s our job to get the message out there! And don’t forget new kid on the block this year for us is Shore Excursions – we have a fantastic range to offer all cruise-bound customers! So any agent who feels they would benefit from a dose of Attraction World then please don’t hesitate to get in touch – we promise not to bite!

Tony Seaman, Sales & Marketing Director, Attraction World

 



trade sales

We are delighted to be supporting the Travel Bulletin Awards once again this year. Travel agents are an integral part of our team who are increasingly recognising the potential of the domestic booking market with its cross sell opportunities from their existing overseas clients.

We not only support events such as the Travel Bulletin Awards but our Travel Trade team is also proud to deliver a high level of support and training to agents throughout the year. We host thousands of agents with free day passes, group familiarisation trips, open days and onsite events so that every agent is able to experience our products first hand. Twenty-four hour support is also available on our dedicated agent website which has recently had a 40k investment to enhance its features even further including selling support, product information, booking incentives and much more!

We would like to thank our travel agent friends for their ongoing support of our ever popular UK holidays at Butlins, Haven and Warner Leisure hotels and we will continue to support them in every way we can.

Louise Tansey, National Sales Manager at Bourne Leisure
