Jetset is truly delighted and honoured to once again be the Voting Form Prize sponsor of the Star Awards 2016.

Jetset has always wanted to give travel agents the tools to do their job and equally feel that agents should be given a voice to make their feelings clear on operators and other providers alike. The Travel Bulletin Star Awards are a Classic event in the calendar and always well supported by agents in both their voting and attendance. Jetset would encourage them to do exactly the same once again in 2016.

Talking of Classics, Jetset have recently seen great support from the trade of our Classic range of properties – these are upscale 4 & 5 star properties for the most discerning clientele. Thank you for your support here, it is always gratefully received.

I would finish by just asking you all to please take a short moment to complete the online voting form. In doing so you are showing your support to the operators and service providers that you believe deserve recognition at this classic awards night.

Attraction World  

Attraction World is always delighted to be involved in key industry events such as the Travel Bulletin Star Awards and is proud to be sponsoring once again both Star Worldwide and Star European Themepark/Attraction Awards. Naturally being a B2B business we are keen to support and encourage agents to sell attractions to the best of their ability and we do this in conjunction with key partners including the main USA and European theme parks - so sponsoring these awards is our way of saying thank you to our partners for their commitment to Attraction World and indeed to the UK travel trade.

As per the above Attraction World is 100% committed to the UK travel trade and to helping agents make the most of the sales opportunities available to them through ancillaries. There are so many advantages of pre-purchasing attractions/excursions/gift experiences to both the customer and the agent and it’s our job to get the message out there! So any agent who feels they would benefit from a dose of Attraction World then please don’t hesitate to get in touch – we promise not to bite!
