Vote for your Onboard Icons of the Past Decade

We are thrilled to be celebrating 10 years of WTCE in 2022. Since our initial event in 2012, the onboard catering and services industry has evolved significantly with countless innovative trends and developments.  But none of this would be possible without the amazing people that work hard every day to make our sector the success that it is.

To honour this, you as an industry have been nominating these Onboard Icons, who you believe have made the biggest contribution to the industry over the past decade as well as those who are continuing to drive it forward today and into the future.

We are now delighted to announce our Onboard Icons Winners!

The WTCE team were delighted to present these 10 winners, as chosen by the industry, with their Onboard Icon award in the Taste of Travel Theatre today.
