The British Travel Awards


You had a sneak peak at these in the 2022 round-up, but today we're taking an even closer look at the latest British Travel Awards. From start to finish, these custom wooden trophies embrace every aspect of bespoke manufacture. Each award has an exceptional finish, with a design that embraces a traditional silhouette in a new style. An example of a trophy with eco-friendly credentials, we're sharing the ins-and-outs of the British Travel Awards new design.

Responsibly Sourced Wooden Trophies

The British Travel Awards are undoubtedly an institution of the travel industry. This years’ ceremony was no exception, with a glamorous evening hosted by television icon Alison Hammond. 2022 saw over half a million votes cast, celebrating companies and individuals across 12 categories. Recognising everything from tailor-made holidays to booking websites, the night gave everyone a reason to celebrate.

Gaudio have worked with the British Travel Awards for over 10 years, and their iconic custom trophy design is well-established. In previous years, solid aluminium has formed the silhouette of a traditional trophy, utilised as part of a modern, freestanding design.

This year, the British Travel Awards were looking to give their trophies an eco-friendly edge. The result is a custom wooden trophy, consistent with their historic design but instead crafted from high-quality beech wood. Each trophy is individually personalised with winners’ names, the date, and their winning category title. The classic laurel is colour-matched, encasing the British Travel Awards logo.


People loved the new look trophy – obviously the material makes it more environmentally friendly, and it was also much lighter, so for those companies who had to carry home a clutch of awards it was a bonus! It was great to be able to keep our unique design which we created with Gaudio more than ten years ago!
