The awards presentation returned to a live event this year, and the black-tie, gala ceremony was held Dec. 16 at the Conrad New York.

An open ballot phase of the voting was conducted during the summer, and readers were invited to write in the names of any company they believed best exemplified a particular category. The leading vote recipients were identified as finalists, and a second round of voting on those names took place in the fall.

Travel Weekly also recognized six people with Lifetime Achievement Awards: Bradley and Jeffrey D. Tolkin, the co-CEOs and co-chairmen of World Travel Holdings; Gloria Bohan, the president and CEO of Omega World Travel; Dolores Lopez Lira and Jose Luis Martinez, the owners and co-founders of Grupo Lomas; and Paula Hayes, vice president of sales for the Globus family of brands.

The award pays tribute to individuals whose efforts have led to extraordinary results within an organization and who have also made significant contributions to the industry as a whole.

This year also saw the creation of the Travel Weekly Sustainability Award, and the first award was given to Sven-Olaf Lindblad, the founder of Lindblad Expeditions.
