ETC is pleased to announce the inception of the

Travel Planner Distinction Awards

Recognize and Honor Your Colleague’s Innovation & Distinction

The Travel Planner Distinction Awards are a new opportunity for our members to highlight their colleague’s achievements. Honorees will be recognized at ETC’s Global Gathering – 31st Annual Conference.

Submit nominations for these three categories

  1. Innovation in Marketing
    Nominate a program that is excelling or has created and delivered an innovative marketing campaign through email, web, social and/or print marketing techniques. 

  2. Thriving Beyond Expectations
    Many planners are faced with restricted financial and staffing resources.  Nominate a travel program that thrives despite limited resources.

  3. Embracing the Educational Mission
    Educational travel is our community’s shared mission.  Nominate a travel program that provides the “ultimate” in educational experiences that serves both the institution and the travelers.  

Nominating is easy.  Please consider honoring a colleague today!
