I am always pleased to be involved in the recognition and celebration of best practice and great achievements in the experiential and events sector and to do so at such an important and high profile event as EIBTM is especially exciting.”

More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
