The drinks were flowing and the gongs were going as TravelManagers celebrated its best and brightest at Crown Towers Perth last night.

After a full weekend of conferencing, the network’s personal travel managers and suppliers frocked up for a night of honouring and celebrating, with actor and Love Your Sister founder Sam Johnson in attendance after a stirring keynote speech just hours earlier.

However, Johnson wasn’t the only celebrity at the awards, with Aussie cricket legend Adam Gilchrist making a surprise appearance to talk about his work with Ronald McDonald House – a charity strongly supported by TravelManagers.

A total of 49 trophies across 30 categories were handed out on the night. Check out the full list of winners from this year’s TravelManagers Gala Awards below (and keep an eye out for all the photos tomorrow):

Twitter melts over hot pilot after passenger “kind of” gets plane to himself

Twitter has some strong opinions about a viral video of a passenger getting a “private jet” experience. Not because the plane was empty, or because the airline said he didn’t fly on it, but because of a split-second encounter with a dreamy pilot.
