The British Travel and Hospitality Hall of Fame recognises the highest achievers in the travel, hospitality, tourism and leisure sectors. Inductees to the Hall of Fame have not only achieved phenomenal business success but have also mentored, inspired and shaped those around them.


In addition to honouring those with a long track record of high achievement, the Hall of Fame also acts as an incubator for rising talent; each year recognising a Young Manager and Young Entrepreneur . The Business Achievement Award and Sustainable Business Award is also presented alongside the Member induction ceremony.


2019 Hall of Fame Inductees, Young Managers of Travel &  Hospitality and Young Entrepreneurs of Travel & Hospitality

The British Travel and Hospitality Hall of Fame was created in 1995 in recognition of the achievements
of outstanding individuals who had disrupted and shaped the market, but weren’t recognised by other
awards programmes that tended to focus on business achievements rather than individual achievement.


In 2014 the Hall of Fame was acquired by one of its youngest inductees, Clive Jacobs , who decided
that the Hall of Fame would not only be a jewel in Travel Weekly ’s crown, but that it would also gain
further traction in the hospitality sector in which The Caterer has a rich history of rewarding high
achievement. In recent years the Roux Brothers, Corbin & King, Robin Hutson, and Alastair Storey have
all taken their places in the Hall of Fame. Some of the most successful names in travel have also
taken their place, and many are household names in their own right.
