Who won what at the Business Traveller Awards 2023
Edited by Travel Weekly


    The winners of the 2023 Business Traveller Awards have been announced in London.

    The event which has been a part of the British travel media calendar for more than 30 years took place at the Royal Garden Hotel.

    Popular comedian, actor and presenter Hugh Dennis hosted the awards which celebrate the industry from aviation to events.

    One award that surprised the editor here was the Best Airport for Shopping award going to Heathrow Airport. Heathrow experiences are usually memorable, but not for the shopping.
