Buying Business Travel took home a number of commendations at the Business Travel Journalism Awards, which took place last night at the Corinthia Hotel in London.
BBT’s big win of the night was being named Editorial Team of the Year. Judges praised the magazine’s “really excellent breadth and depth of content, its good use of infographics, images and space”, and described it as “a thoroughly informative read”.
Meanwhile, Matthew Parsons was highly commended in the Editor of the Year category and won Interview of the Year for his interview with Charlie Bowmont, founder and CEO of Capstar. Judges said the piece “covered an excellent topic really well”, with one judge saying they “loved reading the different perspective on the link between social responsibility and ground transport” and called it a “very original interview”.
BBT’s 2019 Leading 50 TMCs was highly commended for Supplement of the Year, while writers Ben Walsh and Mark Chillingworth were highly commended for features they have written for the magazine over the last 12 months.
Parsons commented: “We’re absolutely thrilled with the range of awards presented to BBT, in particular the Editorial Team of the Year accolade, which is testament to the hard work digital editor Molly Dyson, designers and production team put in to a new website launch and magazine redesign.
“It was also great to see several of our contributors highly commended – recognition of their creativity covering an ever-evolving industry and ability to bring new topics to life. We’re fortunate to work with so many talented writers.”
