Travel Weekly's Readers Choice 2015


Best of the best: Winners of our 13th annual Readers Choice Awards, honoring industry suppliers who led the way in products and services during the year.

Nominees and the award recipients were chosen in two rounds of voting by Travel Weekly readers. The open-ballot phase of voting was conducted over the summer; readers were asked to write in the names of companies they believed were outstanding in any of 74 categories. The leading vote recipients were identified as finalists, and voting on the finalists took place through November.

Here, peruse information about the winners, a slideshow of images from the gala dinner held at the Conrad New York and descriptions of the finalists in each category.
