Luxury sector to be recognised at 2021 Aspire Awards

Aspire’s annual awards ceremony will return this year to celebrate the achievements of the high-end travel sector. 

The Aspire Awards will be held in partnership with Celebrity Cruises on the evening of December 13 at new boutique hotel The Londoner in Leicester Square.

The evening will honour the dedication and determination shown by outstanding individuals and companies in the past 18 months and celebrate the very best brands, the most passionate trade teams and the most innovative agents in the industry. 

The entry process for this year’s Aspire Awards has been streamlined to make it easier and quicker to submit a company or to nominate a colleague. Categories have also been updated to reflect the challenges faced by the travel industry.

Entries are now open and will close on August 18. 

Aspire features writer Erica Bush said: “The Aspire Awards celebrate the best agents, brands and representatives in the luxury travel sector. 

“As the industry continues to emerge from an extraordinarily challenging time, we believe the individuals and companies that have worked tirelessly to look after their clients, often for little or no reward, deserve this recognition more than ever before. We look forward to welcoming Aspire Travel Club members to this event and celebrating together once again.” 

The Aspire Awards first launched as a standalone event in 2019, having previously formed part of sister title Travel Weekly’s annual Agent Achievement Awards. 

Other sponsors supporting this year’s ceremony include Air Charter Service, One&Only and Silversea Cruises.
