The inaugural CATO Awards were held as a stream within the National Travel Industry Awards (NTIA) gala in 2019. But it’s a different story in 2020—the CATOs will, for the first time, be run as a stand-alone event, one that recognises the outstanding achievements of retail travel agents as well as trade and mainstream media.
