As the GOvation mobile app, Annual Business Travel Index and accompanying campaigns help set our brand apart, we consider these awards to be a recognition of our achievements.

Ovation Travel Group, one of the largest independently owned travel management companies headquartered in the US, was honored with a gold Magellan Award in the 2019 Travel Weekly Magellan Awards for its proprietary GOvation Mobile App campaign in the Travel Agent Organizations – Marketing category. Ovation also received a silver Magellan Award for its Annual Business Travel Index in the same category.

“We are honored to be awarded once again by Travel Weekly, one of the most influential news resources for the travel industry,” said Jennifer Achim, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Ovation Travel Group. “With the launch of Ovation’s proprietary GOvation mobile app, part of our OTECH technology suite, we set out to develop a marketing piece that would function on several levels, showcasing the app, highlighting the features and benefits, featuring our brand personality and voice and telling a compelling story that would illustrate the app’s ease of use. As the GOvation mobile app, Annual Business Travel Index and accompanying campaigns help set our brand apart, we consider these awards to be a recognition of our achievements.”

With entries from across the US and around the world, the Magellan Award winners represent the best in the travel industry and salute outstanding travel professionals. The Magellan Awards honor outstanding design, marketing and services in a broad range of industry segments including Hospitality, Travel Destinations, Cruise Lines, Online Travel Services, Airlines and Airports, Travel Agents and Agencies, Tour Operators and Ground Transportation.

The Magellan Awards are judged and overseen by a panel representing the most accomplished leaders in the travel industry. In determining winners, entries do not compete with one another; instead they are judged against a standard of excellence based on the long experience of Travel Weekly. To uphold this high standard of excellence, a category may have multiple winners, or no winners at all.
