Sydney’s art deco Primus Hotel was abuzz on Wednesday evening (4 May) as 130 industry guests attended our first International Traveller Readers’ Choice Awards event.

Europe was the big award winner taking out the Ultimate Travel Experience for 2016, but there were 18 other awards also handed out – see all the finalists and winners here.

Special thanks must be given to our 2016 sponsor AFTA (the Australian Federation of Travel Agents).

We also appreciate our friends at Pernod Ricard who supported the event with Champagne Mumm, Jacobs Creek Reserve wines and Sample Brew ales.

The lucky door prize was a luxury stay supplied from RIMBA Jimbaran Bay by AYANA, Bali.
