Move fast to secure remaining places - over 600 SOLD!

CONSUMER voting to determine the winners of the 2015 British Travel Awards is now closed, the votes are with Deloitte to verify results and if not done already it's time to book for the New York themed big night, when the winners will be announced, this year on Wednesday 25 November at Battersea Evolution, London.

The New York themed night will see guests arrive to a glamorous drinks reception before moving on to be wined and dined in style and entertained by the world's number one Frank Sinatra tribute performer Stephen Triffit. A live rat pack band will welcome sponsors and winners to the stage with the compere this year being stand up comedian, Mock the Week and Have I Got News for You regular, Hal Cruttenden.

As always there will be live post Awards music from the Candy Amp band, taking the best chart hits from the last twenty years and getting everyone on the dance floor, followed by an edgy disco for dancing into the early hours or there will be a quieter After Show Chillzone for catching up with travel industry friends. For those who get the munchies there will a chocolate fountain and midnight New York hot dogs will be served.

British Travel Awards' CEO Lorraine Barnes Burton said: "This year, thanks to the direct voting app we introduced, the successful Trinity Mirror Group campaign and the Exterion Media underground escalator ads, more than a quarter of a million consumers voted to determine the winners of the 2015 British Travel Awards - more than double the number who voted in 2014. Many of the categories were very closely fought and there will be some surprise winners on the night.

"Nominees are snapping up tables and seats for the BTA Awards night and over 600 places have already gone so don't leave booking till the last minute. Booking online you can see which tables are still available and you can also check out who is sitting on the neighbouring tables.

"The BTA's Gala Awards black tie dinner is a fantastic night out and incredible value - it's a show, a four-course dinner with wine, a chance to dress up, brilliant travel industry networking and for some, the excitement of winning a coveted British Travel Award."

Limited tables and individual places at The British Travel Awards are available to reserve online
