2013 Business Traveller Poland Award Winners Announced!

, Data publikacji:

Lufthansa, LOT Polish Airlines, Star Alliance, Best Western, Accor, Hilton, Dell, Toyota and Audi – these are just some of the well-known brands that have been awarded in the very first edition of Business Traveller Poland Awards. The awards ceremony was held on Wednesday in Sobański Palace, Warsaw.

Business Traveller Awards have a long and rich history. Many national editions of Business Traveller magazine organize their own award ceremonies. These include Business Traveller China, Business Traveller Middle East, Business Traveller America, and Business Traveller Africa. The UK-based Business Traveller magazine, which was founded in 1976 in London, organizes its annual Business Traveller Awards event that attracts major airlines and hotel chains around the world.

In Poland Business Traveller has been published since 2009 on paper as well as in online (www.businesstraveller.pl) and tablet versions. This year, for the first time in its history, BT Poland organized its own event based on reader voting. Almost 1,000 people, including business travellers and travel managers, took part in the online survey which contained questions related to products and services. The survey results were then analysed by consultancy firm Deloitte.

“We have decided to organize this event, because we strongly believe that it is worth writing about and awarding good products. Despite the economic downturn there always is and will be demand for luxury products for business travellers. Never before have hotels rooms offered as many amenities as today, and the offer of airlines is equally impressive,” says Robert Grzybowski, the publisher of Business Traveller Poland. – “The results of our survey, which was aimed at business travellers and travel managers, say a lot. Congratulations to the winners,” continues Mr Grzybowski.
