For this year’s Winter TravelMedia.ie Networking Event on Friday 23rd November, following on from the success of last year’s Inaugural Travel Media Awards, we are delighted to announce the 2012 Blue Insurances Travel Media Awards.
The event calls on the media to vote and give their say on who they think stands out in the travel industry and vote for their favourite travel companies.
This year we are delighted to announce that the awards will be sponsored by Blue Insurances.
Ciaran Mulligan, Managing Director of Blue Insurances, said “Blue Insurances are delighted to be the exclusive sponsor of the Travel Media Awards 2012.
