Both were recognized, along with other global volunteer award recipients, during the exclusive Global Leaders Reception at the GBTA Convention in Denver, Colorado on Saturday, July 16.
“Ian and Shelly have proven themselves dedicated and invaluable supporters for GBTA’s Canadian activities.

He understands what it takes to leverage volunteer roles, to gain exposure for his company, and makes the most out of any and every event involvement within our industry. As a founding sponsor, and member with GBTA Canada over the past 12 years, Ian has worked tirelessly to help bring success to our association,” says Nancy Tudorache, Regional Director of Operations for GBTA Canada.
“As a Canadian travel buyer, Shelly understands that it is important to get involved and be surrounded by people who she can both learn from and impact change with. Shelly has been highly involved with GBTA’s global and Canadian activity since 2009 and has taken on many different roles – from being a board director to becoming the President of the board from 2014 – 2016. Shelly truly embodies the spirit of championing a buyer-led and focused industry association.”
