While all eyes are on the UK for the London 2012 Olympics, the PrivateFly team is enjoying some exciting award potential of our own: We were delighted to be named last week as a finalist in two high-profile industry award listings:

ecommerce awards - PrivateFlyThe eCommerce Awards for Excellence 2012 reward online innovation, across all industries. PrivateFly.com is shortlisted in the Redesign Of The Year category – following the launch of our new look website in May. Other finalists in our category are British Gas, nails inc, Nectar, printed.com and Telefonica UK.

The travel industry’s Travolution Awards 2012 recognise excellence in online travel distribution, digital marketing and technology. We are a finalist in the Best Meta Search/Price Comparison Website category alongside icelolly.com, skyscanner.net, teletextholidays.co.uk, travelsupermarket.com

It remains to be seen if we’ll be standing up on the podium at one or both of these award ceremonies. With presentations for both taking place in October, Team PrivateFly has a longer wait than London 2012’s competitors to find out if we can celebrate a Gold medal win (or two). But to be shortlisted against such big brands across ecommerce and the travel industry is already welcome and well-deserved recognition for the team.
