CWT Wins Best Travel Management Company at Business Travel Awards 2017
24 JANUARY, 2017
Carlson Wagonlit Travel (CWT) was last night honoured with Best TMC (more than £200m UK annual sales) at the 2017 Business Travel Awards.
The victory was down to the fact that: “the judges felt that with a new leadership team, new technology, apps and analytics and a diverse customer base, gave Carlson Wagonlit Travel renewed momentum, giving it the edge over its competitors.”
CWT AnalytIQs, Carlson Wagonlit Travel’s interactive, real time insight tool also came in as highly commended in the Best Travel Technology category in which it was shortlisted.
Johan Wilson, CWT UK & Ireland’s VP and country manager, UK & Ireland, who collected the award, commented: "We are delighted that the industry has once again recognised us as the best TMC. During my first few months working with the CWT UKI teams, I have seen what incredible work is done every day for our clients and I know that this award is very well deserved. It’s an excellent start to 2017.”
The glittering ceremony was held at the Grosvenor House hotel and attended by over 1,300 members of the business travel industry. A full list of winners and the shortlists can be seen here.
