About European Group Travel Awards

The European Group Travel Awards (EGTA) was created by Tim Hentschel, CEO of HotelPlanner.com, and Peter Stonham, Editorial Director at Landor Travel Publications. Mr. Hentschel and Mr. Stonham organized the EGTA to recognize all the effort and dedication that European suppliers and organizations put into providing group travelers with exceptional travel experiences.

The concept was introduced into the marketplace by Peter Stonham who, with Group Travel Organiser, have been providing group travelers with information and ideas for group travel trips since 1988. The event in London, called the UK Group Travel Awards, is attended by nearly 500 attendees and awards are provided in 23 categories.

HotelPlanner.com and Landor Travel Publications also launched the American Group Travel Awards which took place in New York, New York on November 13th, 2017 at TAO Downtown. The American Group Travel Awards recognizes the finest suppliers in North America that specialize in group travel.

HotelPlanner.com and Group Travel Organiser believe that the group market will continue to grow. Shared travel experiences with family and friends and by corporations and businesses help build more productive relationships and memories that last a lifetime.
