G Adventures wins big at WTM

Each year, Canadian Travel Press, as an official media partner of World Travel Market (WTM), nominates three Canadian companies to be short-listed for one of the show’s prestigious Global Awards.

A panel of independent judges then picks a winner which, this year, is G Adventures.

Pictured at the awards ceremony in London are, from left to right, Charlotte Alderslade, portfolio conference and seminar manager, WTM; David McClung, president, Baxter Media; and Brian Young, managing director, G Adventures, UK.

The judges were impressed by the fact that G Adventures has been a favourite of Canadian retailers in the adventure operator category of our annual Agents’ Choice Awards survey ever since 2008.

And they also responded positively to the G Adventures mantra that travel is an exchange not a commodity and that, as a social enterprise, the planet is the product and its social and environmental welfare is fundamentally important.

Additionally, non-profit sister organization Planaterra, which currently supports 75 projects around the world aimed at helping local communities around the world earn an income from tourism, resonated with the three judges.
