“I could not have asked for a more memorable way to retire. I had planned a quiet exit without any fuss. I didn’t realise how much I would enjoy all the fuss and the opportunity it gave me to say goodbye to so many of my colleagues going back over many years. Thank you everyone for my award and for looking after me so well on the day. I hope the next recipient  will enjoy their award as much as I have”.

Pat Reede, ex Sales Manager Ireland for United, discussing her Lifetime Achievement Award win at the Travel Media Awards 2017

“We’ve been to many awards events and ceremonies and this one was in a class of its own. Thank you and your team for a great day.”
