LUTON, England--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Quingo, the 5 wheel mobility scooter brand, has announced it will sponsor the Best Limited Mobility/Accessible Travel Provider category at the first annual Silver Travel Awards ceremony in London.
Jennie Bond, the BBC’s former Royal Correspondent will host the event which takes place on 4th June 2015 at London’s Natural History Museum.
The new event has been launched this year by Silver Travel Advisor for the mature travel market, with the awards predicted to become established as a significant date in travel industry diaries.
Silver Travel Advisor is a website run by travel industry professionals promoting mobility and offering advice for mature travellers. The Quingo team, who share a common desire to promote safe mobility and independence, recognised the Best Limited Mobility/Accessible Travel Provider as a very worthy category of great interest to its own customer base.
The Quingo team and Silver Travel Advisor recently launched a series of articles (http://www.quingoscooters.com/great-british-accessible-attractions/) on Great British accessible travel destinations which aims to encourage users to get out and about on their scooters and report back on their experiences for the benefit of others.
Quingo scooters are the world’s only 5 wheel mobility scooter, improving accessibility by offering enhanced stability, maximum manoeuvrability and full ergonomic posture control. This provides the user with superior comfort on all journeys.
Quingo’s Managing Director, Mark Nicholls, spoke about the partnership saying: “Quingo are proud to be involved with the Silver Travel Awards. Silver Travel Advisor share our ethos of promoting accessibility and safe mobility, so we are happy to share the recommendations and best practices that we hope this award category will attract.
“Hopefully this is the first of many events recognising those who strive to improve accessibility and independence”.
A ‘best of the best’ award will be judged by a panel of mature celebrities and senior figures from the travel industry, who will select an overall winner from each of the categories.
Voting for the Awards opened earlier this month and will close on 31st March. To place a vote, visit the Silver Travel Advisor website (http://www.silvertraveladvisor.com/index.cfm?v=Silver_Travel_Awards_FeaturedArticle&fkArticleID=295&fuseaction=pubDsp.dspFeaturedArticle) and click ‘Vote Now’.

The winner for each award will be chosen at the event on 4th June.
