Tnooz won an award
Having spent many an hour over the past two years discussing the often daft state of the awards business in the travel industry, it’s odd to be on the receiving end of one.
The prize was one of 20 accolades given out at the winners’ ceremony in London, an event created a few years back to recognise excellence in journalism, broadcasting and photography in both business and consumer-focused travel media.
Not much else to say really, except it’s very satisfying on behalf of the team, after two years of extremely hard work, to be recognised by the industry which Tnooz writes about every day.
The Nodes, Dennis Schaal and Linda Fox, with Gene Quinn and his guys behind the scenes, thoroughly deserve this.
But to repeat the words of The West Wing’s President Bartlet: “What’s next?”
