BREAKING: Travel Retail Awards winners announced

By Charlotte Turner |

TRBusiness and Swiss consumer research agency m1nd-set revealed the winners of the 2021 Global Travel Retail Awards following the spectacular return of the live, in-person ceremony, which was also livestreamed, this evening in London.


The physical awards ceremony, which was also accessible via a livestream for those who could not travel to London due to restrictions, took place following day one of the inaugural Travel Retail Consumer Forum (20-22 September), at the prestigious Hilton London Paddington Hotel.


You can still register below for the TR Consumer Forum to access all recordings of the sessions so far as well as the 2021 Global Travel Retail Awards ceremony. As a full delegate you can access all videos on demand for three months after the event.

TRBusiness and m1nd-set revealed the much-anticipated accolades based on inimitable feedback from a panel of consumer bloggers and vloggers and expert insight from thousands of international travellers independently sourced from m1nd-set’s unique database.



Now in its fourth year, the consumer-voted Travel Retail Awards continues to deliver tangible value for entrants and supporters, providing a hallmark of trust and confidence in the products and services offered to – and voted by – consumers.

TRBusiness and m1nd-set were delighted to host delegates for the 2021 Global Travel Retail Awards in London during the inaugural TR Consumer Forum.
