Triple award win for The Business Travel Magazine

The Business Travel Magazine took home three awards at this year’s Business Travel Journalism Awards (BTJAs).

The magazine’s Editor, Bev Fearis, was voted Editor of the Year for the second consecutive year.

Described as an “ambassador for the wider industry” the judges said she “continues to evolve the magazine’s breadth and appeal at pace, most notably through revamped newsletters and regular exploratory features, unpicking sustainability credentials within the industry”. 

Gillian Upton won the Technology Award for a feature published in The Business Travel Magazine looking at travel tech trends, features and innovations and how each can practically help travel managers to deliver and keep their travellers safe.

Catherine Chetwynd’s work on a Business Travel Magazine supplement on the evolution of serviced apartments and the extended-stay sector post pandemic helped her scoop the Accommodation Award.

The three were chosen by an independent judging panel who looked at hundreds of entries from national, consumer, broadcast, and trade media worldwide.

“The 2022 Business Travel Journalism Awards shine a light on the exemplary standards of journalism upheld within the travel and meetings sphere,” says Julian Walker, CWT’s Head of External Market Communications and PR.

“The entrants, shortlisters and ultimate category winners this year have again proven the importance of the questions they ask our industry, to ensure it continues to progress and strive for excellence.”

The prestigious awards, now in their 19th year, were held on Monday evening in the Crypt of St Paul’s Cathedral in London.

The awards success came just weeks after The Business Travel Magazine was voted Best Print Trade Publication in the Travel Media Awards.
