Tsogo Sun is the Best Hotel Group for business travellers, according to a prestigious award presented to the group at the recent Business Traveller Africa (BTA) Awards. The BTA Awards were launched in Sandton in 2012 in association with Future Group's Business Traveller Africa magazine. The awards event was created for the South African business travel trade, covering all aspects of business travel, including the four main areas of hotels, airlines, car rental and travel management, along with related categories. "It's a proud moment when the industry we're striving to serve to the highest standards acknowledges our efforts as the best in the business," says Tsogo Sun's General Manger of Group Communications, Priay Naidoo.
"We believe that awards are good for our business. They encourage a pride in the company by our people and a determination to raise industry standards and always strive to go the extra mile. Of course, winning awards is something that visitors appreciate as well. Staying in an award-winning hotel is likely to mean an experience that surpasses expectations - and that's what Tsogo Sun is about." The objective of the Business Traveller Africa Awards is to reward excellence in South African business travel and to acknowledge those brands and entities that have performed with excellence over the past 12 months. Keeping it in the family, Tsogo Sun's Sandton Convention Centre won the Best Venue in the Large Conference Venue category in the BTA Awards. Though only in their second year, the BTA Awards is rapidly finding a niche as an awards event that acknowledges the industry's top performers.
