Good Luck to all! I'm looking forward to see who wins the categories! :)

ourman said...

What, no links?

Sam said...

Wow, thanks for the two inclusions in the shortlists! The guys that spent 12 months slaving over the maps are going to be happy with that recognition :) And best travel portal; wow, that's some fierce competition we're up against (although I'm still confident!)!

Best of luck to everyone (although of course less luck to those in the same categories as us - hahaha)!

Select World Travel said...

Should I have gone to Specsavers Kevin? One Minute Select World Travel are short-listed for best use of social media and then if by Magic, I could swear that some Links ( as Ourman quite rightly mentioned) have suddenly appeared but the name of Select World Travel suddenly seems to have disappeared? No doubt you have the matter in hand Kev.

Good Luck everybody.

apologies Lee. error during the editing and placing of links.

Paul Goodison said...

Can't we have a new category of most reviewed website in Travolution? I'm sure we (Explore) would be in with a chance of winning that one :)

Maybe next year...

Social media category is certainly the most interesting.

MickMack said...

Good to see Travolution's awards are catching some publicity. At viator.com we're very happy to have been nominated, see you in April at the ceremonies.

One question for Travolution: are you going to send logos or creative to the nominees so we can promote the awards on our own sites?

Best,
Scott Mc
Viator.com

Travolution Blogger said...

Scott: Viator, or any other nominee, who wishes to carry some creative can get in touch with me directly. I can send Travolution or Awards logos.

Email me: kevin.may@rbi.co.uk

Great names there. Interesting to see www.isango.com is in best new comer category. How come the newcomer list is so short. There are many more web sites which came out in last 1 year.

Chris said...

The crew here at TravelGator are ecstatic at being mentioned in such great company. We’re also pretty happy that so many of our partners have also been nominated. Good luck to everyone!
