in Travel Awards
Autumn 2021, London
A message from everywoman co-founders Karen Gill and Maxine Benson:
We hope you are keeping safe and well during this terrible time. It is with a heavy heart we have made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 everywoman in Travel Awards. We say difficult because we know how much so many travel industry colleagues have helped make this such a wonderfully, successful and inspiring programme, in just 4 years! We have taken the view that now is not the right time to be asking for nominations and then when life does get a little bit more back to normal in the autumn, the whole industry will be in massive recovery mode, so it would be unfair to ask for your time at that stage too. But be in no doubt the programme will be back early next year!
We remain thinking of you and your teams and If we can be of any assistance whatsoever, please don’t hesitate to contact us. And do let your people know about all the free online activity we are making available to help keep us all motivated, connected and sane at this time!
Karen and Max
