All the winners from the TravelManagers 2018 Gala awards!

As the glitter settles on another fabulous night of frivolities at the TravelManager’s annual national conference, Travel Weekly has spent their morning desperately trying to piece together our notes so we can bring you the winners of the annual gala awards!

And it’s been a challenge – after our third champagne, we were scrawling the winner names down on napkins, bread rolls, and even the arm of the lovely lady sitting next to us.
