Launched in 1988 by Business Traveller UK magazine, Business Traveller Awards has considerably expanded its geography during almost 30 years of existence. The award held in the UK, the USA, Germany, Poland, Africa, the Asia-Pacific region, and the Middle East has now come to Russia. The Russian branch of Business Traveller will organize the prize-giving ceremony of the annual award Business Traveller Russia and CIS Awards on September 26, 2016.
The representatives of the Russian business travel market will compete in six categories: airline, airport, hotel, car rental service, roaming (the best mobile operator), and destination.
This year the number of nominees for Business Traveller Russia and CIS Awards has reached 300 participants including not only the representatives of internationally acclaimed brands but also local Russian and CIS companies. One of the competition’s key features is its voting system: the award is decided purely by the readers’ vote, which will last until September 11, 2016 on the official website dedicated to the event. Instead of the expert commission and award panel, the winners are determined by the readers of the Business Traveller Russian edition: business travellers, international and Russian business school graduates, big international companies’ managers, representatives of Russian state corporations, and, indeed, individual travellers.
The winners of the Russian Business Traveller Awards will be announced at Izvestiya Hall venue on September 26, 2016.
