How to arrive at The Travel Awards

It’s just over 24 hours until The Travel Awards 2019, so to make the lives of those attending just a little bit easier, we’ve got a handy guide on how to make your grand entrance to the industry’s night of nights!

The awards will be held on Friday 29 November 2019 at The Venue (ground floor, 55 Doody Street, Alexandria). Please arrive promptly for welcome drinks, which kick off at 6pm.

If arriving by Uber/Ola/Shebah/taxi, please type into your app (or tell the driver) ‘Gate A, The Venue Alexandria’. This will direct your driver to enter via News Direct Road, which can be accessed via O’Riordan Street.

If you’re driving and need to park, the carpark can be accessed via 55 Doody Street.

If you arrive in the correct place, you’ll step out onto a teal carpet and be greeted with champagne courtesy of principal partner Crystal. But if you arrive any other way, you’ll miss out on the unique arrival experience.

Guests are to be seated for entrée by 7pm, with the awards ceremony kicking off at 7.20pm.

The after-party will kick off at 9.30pm, immediately after the awards ceremony. Spirits will be available for purchase during the after-party, but please note that no cash will be accepted at this bar – only EFTPOS and credit cards.

The dress code for the event is black tie, and please remember to bring a copy of your ticket.

Feel free to start getting social before the awards and on the night using the hashtag #TheTravelAwards, and for group booking organisers, please forward the above information to the rest of your team attending the awards.

Oh, and if you missed our finalists announcement for The Travel Awards 2019, you can find out just who will be vying for a shiny gong and bragging rights here.

Big thanks to all our fabulous sponsors, as well as our media partner Better Homes and Gardens. These awards simply wouldn’t be possible without your generous support!

It’s going to be one hell of a night, and we look forward to seeing you all there!
