Advantage Travel Partnership hosted its latest Big Celebration Lunch at Hilton London Bankside.
The invitation-only event – sponsored by Tourism Australia – saw over 250 guests in attendance, including Advantage members, business partners, suppliers and the press.
The evening marked the Big Celebration Lunch’s return following a three-year hiatus.
Guests were treated to a three-course Christmas lunch, drinks and entertainment. TV presenter Mark Durden-Smith hosted the event and a live band from The Salvation Army took centre stage.
British Airways, Jet2Holidays and Celebrity Cruises were among those to pick up awards.
Guests also donated over 300 children’s gifts to The Salvation Army, in support of the charity’s Christmas Present Appeal.
Julia Lo Bue-Said, CEO, The Advantage Travel Partnership, said: “Our Advantage Big Celebration Lunch this year was our biggest yet. With so many amazing achievements taking place across our organisation last year, it was a great opportunity to celebrate with those that really have gone above and beyond in the last 12 months.
“As a business we’re committed to ensuring our events consider not only our environmental impact but also our ability to make a difference to local people and communities. Our ability to leverage our size and scale to deliver a positive impact to children and their families throughout London at this time of year is greatly appreciated.”
