Now in its sixth year, Ovation Global DMC’s annual Huggability Award is a fun and informal excuse to nominate someone who deserves congratulations, who makes your day or who is simply a lovable pain in the butt!

Nominations are now open to find a worthy and huggable successor to the 2013 Huggability Award winner Sue Pelletier.

Looking back over the nominees from the past five years, it is extremely obvious that people really are the core of our industry – there’s a lot of love and respect being shared,” commented Aoife Delaney, director of Global Sales, Ovation Global DMC.

Among the early nominations received are:

  • Jake Megrikhan – Intercontinental Hotel Group
  • Bo Krüger – Moving Minds
  • Miha Kovacic – Slovenia Tourist Board
  • Alison Ledger – C&IT Magazine

Nominations can be made before Oct. 5 via www.ovationdmc.com/ovation-bear/hug14.
