Business travel's biggest night of the year in pictures

The Business Travel Awards Europe 2021

September 9 saw more than 700 industry colleagues gather at the Grosvenor House Hotel on London’s Park Lane for the 26th annual Business Travel Awards Europe, where the winners across 22 categories were announced. The black tie event, organised by the BTN Group, got underway with a champagne reception and entertainment from Frobacks before a three-course gala dinner and awards ceremony hosted by comedian Rob Beckett.

While all categories reflected the outstanding efforts of finalists in a year like no other, several were specifically designed to recognise organisations and people acting for the greater good of the industry, with Clive Wratten, chief executive of the Business Travel Association (BTA), receiving the Outstanding Contribution to Business Travel award and Festive Road landing the Covid-19 Crisis Response award.

Meanwhile, Calum Hawley of Endeavour Mining was named Travel Buyer of the Year and the Ministry of Defence - Defence Travel Team and American Express Global Business Travel was named Travel Team of the Year.
