Travelzoo Wins Gold at Stevie Awards for Women in Business

NEW YORK, November 20, 2017—Global travel deals publisher Travelzoo® (NASDAQ: TZOO) has won gold in the Stevie® Awards, winning the ‘Event of the Year’ category for its groundbreaking panel discussion featuring Tina Brown CBE, creator of the Women in the World Summit, and highlighting its new 80% female board. The results were announced on Friday night during a gala event in New York.

In May 2017, Travelzoo announced it had become the only U.S.-listed company to have 80% of its board of director seats held by women—the highest female-to-male ratio of any NASDAQ or NYSE-listed company. The landmark news was commemorated with the award-winning event on June 19 at Spring Place in New York.

The Stevie Awards for Women in Business recognize the achievements of female executives, entrepreneurs and the organizations they run. The awards are presented by the Stevie Awards, which organizes seven different business awards shows around the globe. More than 1,500 entries were submitted this year for consideration in more than 90 categories. Finalists were chosen by a panel of more than 170 C-level and senior executives from around the world.

“We are delighted with this top win for our panel discussion event with Tina Brown,” says Ralph Bartel, founder and chairman of Travelzoo. “Our landmark event was a major step in getting the word out that diversity in the boardroom matters to us at Travelzoo. We hope it inspires more companies to follow suit.”
