NYS scoop the award for Best Travel Management Company at the Business Travel Awards 2017…
On the evening of Monday 23rd January, our Managing Director (Oliver Garside) and Commercial Manager (Nicky Traynor) joined 1,250 industry leading professionals for the Business Travel Awards Ceremony at Grosvenor House. The 2017 awards were one of the most fiercely contested in recent years, and even being shortlisted was considered a tremendous accolade. As such, Oliver was overjoyed to be called to the stage to accept the award for: Best Travel Management Company (less than £50m UK annual sales). The trophy was presented by Travelport’s Paul Broughton, who read the following quote from the judging panel:
“The judges liked NYS Corporate’s business model and its use of ‘smart’ working, and were impressed by the substantial investment in staff and IT, not to mention the excellent results achieved in the last year.”

The following morning, Oliver brought the trophy to our Head Office in York to celebrate with the team.
“I’m immensely proud of the whole NYS team who have been working tirelessly over the last few years to help NYS become a market leading and world class travel management company. It’s a huge privilege to work with them and it’s great that our work and our investments in technology and service have been recognised not just by our clients but also by the rest of the industry!”
