The search is on for OTT’s greatest travel gurus

OTT is on the hunt for our greatest UK travel gurus.

Our very first PoP Awards will honour those agents who have the destination knowledge to rival any atlas. Our PoP Awards finalists will be the agents who listen to their clients holiday wish lists and can pinpoint the exact location where all of them can be fulfilled. We’ll also be celebrating the most popular travel brands with agents, according to OTT data analytics.

The awards will take place on March 16 at the Cavendish Conference Centre, sponsors announced so far include Gran Canaria, Force 24, Gibraltar and Cruise and Maritime. Travel Weekly has also been confirmed as media partner for the event.

But what will it take to win that coveted guru status? We asked OTT founder Julia Feuell for her thoughts: “Our specialist gurus are some of the most active members on the OTT platform. Naturally, they will have completed many OTT courses but they will also live and breathe travel, attending industry events and exhibitions, participating in FAM trips and roadshows.”

Could you be crowned as one of our industry experts? Do your happy clients have you on speed dial? And do they come to you specifically for your advice?

Our PoP Awards will honours experts whose destination knowledge spans the entire globe. The event will crown gurus who have specialist knowledge of both geographical locations and sectors:
