Voted on by Readers, Premier Traveler’s Annual Awards Ceremony Crowned Air Canada With Four Prestigious Awards in 2015.”The most extraordinary aspect of an event this large, and with so many industry luminaries, was its genuine warmth, its informal congeniality and its optimism,” describes Forman. “It felt much like a college or family reunion, where attendees were delighted to see old friends, to connect long time colleagues with new ones, and best of all, to reach out to other companies with a generous spirit. A telling detail was that no one wanted to leave! Knots of people lingered in the dining room to chat, and continued celebrating long after the ‘official’ party had ended,” she remembers.
