Group Travel Organiser of the Year

The Group Travel Organiser of the Year Award® was first launched back in 1998 to recognise and reward special people who continually deliver enjoyable days out and holidays, making a difference to the people in their community, workplace, club or society.

It offers the winner a prize of £2,000 to spend on a familiarisation holiday and continues to be the biggest accolade for GTOs, putting great organisers on a pedestal and highlighting their incredible work.

The GTO of the Year Award® is presented annually at the Group Leisure & Travel Awards.

Previous GTO of the Year winner, Lin Wilson of Solent Events used her prize money well. Lin is a reminder of how group business can be big business: “I took my husband on the trip to Croatia originally with my prize money. The following year I ran a trip with my group and hired half a ship, and then two years later I took another group, booking out the whole ship. So my prize had a direct effect on the trips I’ve run since then.”
