The Agent Achievement Awards are coming and Blue Bay are hoping to bag multiple gongs on their visit to London.

Blue Bay have been nominated for no less than four prestigious awards at this year’s Agent Achievement Awards (AAAs). With selections coming in for both the business as a whole and individual recognition.

We’re getting our glad rags on


What awards are we nominated for?

We’ll be heading to London’s Park Plaza Westminster Hotel to battle it out in the National Call Centre Agency and Online Agency categories.

Meanwhile, team members Nicky Streeter and Sophie Graves have also been nominated in the individual awards section.

While Nicky is eyeing honours in the Agency Support Team Member of the Year section. Sophie is going for gold in this year’s Young Leisure Agent of the Year category.

Individual honours

Nicky and Sophie’s nominations demonstrate the successes happening at both ends of the business right now. Although there’s a gap in experience between the ladies, both have shown how valuable an asset they are.

But we spoke with Blue Bay CEO, Alistair Rowland to get his thoughts on the two worthy nominees:

I would like to extend my congratulations to both Nicky and Sophie on their nominations. This awareness comes as recognition for the brilliant work they complete for Blue Bay every day.

Nothing is ever too much for either of them. Nicky has been a part of the industry for over 25 years and has a wealth of experience which helps drive the team forwards on a daily basis. Whereas Sophie is not only brand new to Blue Bay, she’s also new to the travel industry. For her to be delivering the results she is it’s incredible.

Of course, we wish them both well on the night. We’ll be there in support if we’re allowed. But no matter what the result, both ladies have proven they’re integral members of the Blue Bay family and we couldn’t be more proud.

Team awards

But with awesome individuals comes certain team success and Blue Bay have also been nominated, alongside household industry names like: Iglu.com, LoveHolidays and cruise.co.uk for two honours.

Thanks to the incredible job our customer service and sales teams have done over the last 18 months, we’re now chasing the gongs for Online Agency and Call Centre Agency Of The Year.

Both awards are voted for by suppliers and come steeped in history.

What are the AAAs

Created by trusted industry news source Travel Weekly and in association with Virgin Atlantic, the awards are a recognised and well-respected event within the travel industry calendar. The AAAs have been celebrating excellence in travel for 25 years.

This year’s glitzy ceremony comes after a break in proceedings in 2020 due to the pandemic. But now they’re back with a vengeance and set to take place at London’s Park Plaza Westminster Hotel on 16 September.

Best of luck to all involved!
