Event Travel Management has once again been recognised as the Best Business Events Travel Agency in Australia, claiming the prestigious Australian Federation of Travel Agents (AFTA) award at the weekend.
The specialist event division of Corporate Travel Management was presented with the award at a gala dinner at the Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion on Saturday 20 July 2013, with Event Travel Management General Manager Tracey Edwards proudly accepting the award for the second consecutive year.
“Event Travel Management is excited to be the winner of the AFTA Best Business Events Travel Agency for 2013, and appreciate AFTA for recognising this important and exciting part of Australia’s travel industry,” said Edwards.
“We would like to take this opportunity to thank our clients for allowing us to provide them with exciting conferences, incentives and events; our staff for their inspiring passion in executing these events and ensuring their continued success; and our valued suppliers for their continued support.
“Finally, I would also like to thank CTM and our corporate travel colleagues for their assistance as we have worked together to provide outstanding events and results for mutual clients.”
The award was one of three which Corporate Travel Management – Australia and New Zealand’s leading travel management company – received on Saturday evening, with the company also taking out the Best National Travel Management Company award for the eighth time in ten years while CTM Operations Manager (Brisbane) Shelley Leven was recognised as the Best Travel Agency Manager – Corporate.
CTM Chief Executive Officer (AU/NZ) Laura Ruffles said the awards demonstrate the continued validation by Australia’s travel industry of CTM’s highly personalised approach.
“The honours CTM received from AFTA on Saturday evening are clear proof of the continued and consistent success of our value proposition, focusing on highly personalised service and constant innovation for our clients,” said Ruffles.
“Our events division is a key part of our service delivery for our clients, and is fantastic to see their dedication and commitment recognised for the second year running.”
The AFTA National Travel Industry Awards is the premier industry event of the year. CTM has now been awarded the Best National Travel Management Company title eight times in the past ten years and was inducted into the AFTA Hall of Fame in 2010 in recognition of its long running success.
