The Guild of Travel Management Companies (GTMC) is the UK's leading professional body for travel management companies. Our diverse membership accounts for over 80% of UK expenditure on managed business travel, delivering value for money and great service to business travellers in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors.
The GTMC has been shortlisted as a finalist in the 'Association Leadership Award' category.
The winners of each category will be announced at the Association of Excellence Awards 2015 Ceremony.
The 2015 Overseas Conference will be held in Brussels at the Le Plaza from 5th – 8th June.
We are delighted that Eurostar will be our lead Industry Partner for this event.
Entries and nominations for The People Awards 2015 are now being received at www.thepeopleawards.co.uk.The awards recognise individuals and teams from TMCs and across the corporate travel sector that have demonstrated excellence and professionalism in the last 12 months.
While the entry deadline on February 27 is still a few weeks away, it is important that nominations are planned in advance. That said, the online nominations tool makes entering the awards fast and easy. If you think an individual or a team from any part of your company should be singled out for their outstanding performance in the last year, you now have the opportunity to give them the recognition they deserve.
Furthermore, we believe it is also important for the TMC community to make sure its best partners from the supplier community are recognised. So, if you work closely with someone from an airline, hotel, car rental firm or any other supplier, and if you think they are great at supporting you, now is the time to put them forward for one of the supplier categories.
This year's lunchtime ceremony takes place at the Park Plaza Riverbank in central London on Friday, May 22.

Amazingly, Britain hasn’t built a new full runway in London and the South East since World War 2. Politicians have always found it easier to put off the hard choices.
In fact, they STILL won’t admit that we need a new runway to secure future growth, despite the Government’s Airports Commission stating clearly that we do.
Germany, France and the Netherlands are all racing ahead of our country. They have better connections to new and emerging markets around the world, making it easier for them to trade.
By the 2020s, we will be running out of space (Heathrow is already full, Gatwick will be full by 2020 and most of London’s airports full soon after), but it will take ten years to deliver a new runway. We must start now.
That’s why we created the Let Britain Fly Pledge. It tells MPs and Ministers to admit: we need new runways.
Last week a range of business leaders said ‘enough is enough’ and signed the Pledge. We have the support of companies including Aberdeen Asset Management, Canary Wharf Group, Harrods, Linklaters, Radisson Edwardian, SEGRO, Selfridges and around 100 other businesses.
But you can’t leave it just to these business leaders to make the case. We need your support too. Please add your name TODAY to the Let Britain Fly Pledge: http://letbritainfly.com/sign-up/
Please add your name and call on MPs to support this important cause. Together, we can make this happen.
