Jacobs Media wins prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise

The Queen’s Awards recognise outstanding achievement in the fields of international trade, innovation and sustainable development, and have been the highest official awards for UK businesses since being established by Royal Warrant in 1965.

Jacobs Media was recognised in the 2020 awards for outstanding short-term growth in overseas sales, having expanded its global business in the previous three years by 52.5%. Winners are selected by judging panels made up of business leaders and entrepreneurs and are required to demonstrate strong corporate social responsibility.

Speaking as the awards were announced on April 21, Jacobs Media chairman Clive Jacobs said: “As the global travel and hospitality industry faces its greatest challenge, we are incredibly proud of the role we play in informing, connecting and supporting individuals and brands around the world through our portfolio of events, conferences and insight products.
“The industry’s recovery will rely more than ever on the travel community uniting with a clear purpose and clarity of voice, and Jacobs Media will continue to use every resource available to play our part.”
 He added: “To receive a Queen’s Award for Enterprise is recognition not just of our ambitious plans in our first 10 years as an independent business but is also testament to the passion of our team for the travel and hospitality industries and a reflection of the support of our partners and readers in the UK and around the world.”
