Following the completion of the first round of judging by a panel of experts across a wide range of industry sectors, the shortlist for the 2018 Business Travel Awards has been announced.

The judging panel spent many hours deliberating to come up with their selection of the entries that will move forward to the next round. This year saw a record number of entries across 22 categories, including Travel Buyer and Team of the Year, Rising Star and Best TMC.

Mike Toynbee, BBT’s managing editor and chairman of the judging panel, said: “Thanks to the dedicated judges who gave their valuable time to acknowledge the successes of their industry colleagues.”

The judges will meet again before the end of the year to carefully analyse each of the finalists’ entries in order to determine the winner of each category. These will be announced at a fantastic gala ceremony on January 22 2018 at the Grosvenor House hotel in London, where guests will be treated to a champagne reception and live entertainment.
