Annual World Travel Awards Gala Ceremony 1995

28 September 1995 – New York

New York

In the sumptuous setting of The Plaza, New York on the edge of Central Park, more than 700 high-flyers of the global travel industry were in high spirits as the evening unfolded. Travel Agents in more than 50 countries voted for the awards organised by the international TTG titles throughout the world.

The awards ceremony in The Plaza's elegant Grand Ballroom was interspersed by a chorus line of colourful entertainment. Musical classics swept the room as Oscar and Tony Award winner and star of West Side Story star Rita Moreno leapt onto the stage. Ms Moreno even joined in the fun backstage as award winners mixed with performers and posed for the assembled mass of photographers.

As industry leaders recovered from their moments in the spotlight, comedian Jackie Mason took to centre stage and from then on no-one looked away. Mr Mason kept the audience enthralled by his fast-paced style and relentless humour, giving the World Travel Awards a grand finale that meant everyone left with a smile.
