This bash has become too big for a brewery.

John Kirk, founder and president of TravelPulse Canada, has announced that the 2024 edition of the Readers’ Choice Awards — the biggest party in the Canadian travel industry —  will be held Thursday, May 16 at Hotel X Toronto, one of the city’s most sought-after venues.

“Mark your calendars, friends,” said Kirk. “This celebration of Canadian travel advisors and travel suppliers is going to be bigger than ever. We loved the venue at Steam Whistle Brewery, but we’ve been pushing the limits of capacity for the past two years. At Hotel X, an iconic luxury hotel on the Lake Ontario waterfront, we’ll be able to accommodate everyone who wants to attend.”

“We are very excited to be partnering with TravelPulse Canada as the Official Hotel event Sponsor for their annual Readers’ Choice Awards and Canadian Travel Hall of Fame induction ceremonies,” said Fariyal Hasham, Managing Director at Hotel X Toronto.

“The travel industry in Canada is an integral part of our ongoing strategy and to be able to have so many industry leaders under one roof at our luxurious property is very exciting for all of us here. As this is the premiere national awards gala presented by Canada’s leading travel industry media company, we felt it was a perfect match. When John first approached us with the opportunity, we quickly realized it was an ideal match between luxury and quality. We look forward to welcoming everyone to Hotel X on May the 16th, 2024”

As in past years, the TravelPulse Canada Readers’ Choice Awards will see thousands of travel agents across the country cast their votes for Canada’s best travel suppliers, including airlines, tourist boards, travel insurance companies, hotel chains, tour operators and more. The winners will be celebrated at the event, which will also see new members inducted into the prestigious Canadian Travel Hall of Fame.

“We believe this is an industry worth celebrating,” says Kirk. “And we’re thrilled that the RCAs have become the leading event honouring the people and companies that make the travel dreams of Canadians come true. And with the Canadian Travel Hall of Fame, we’ve created a lasting legacy, commemorating the special people who have made this industry a vibrant success.”
