So far 2019 has been a bit of a stand out year for Travelworld Motorhomes. They have opened up their brand new Hymer Centre, the only one in the UK and they have just been won a top business award following a ceremony earlier this month.

The Midlands Business Awards took place on the 8th of March and saw the Erwin Hymer Centre Travelworld receive the award for Family Business of the Year 2019.

The black tie event took place Athena, Leicester and was attended by hundreds of guests recognising businesses, entrepreneurs and talent from all over the Midlands region. The awards, founded by Harj Sandher, are now in their 13th year.

Attending with colleagues, Erik Baxendale, Nick Barker and Carol Huggins was Ross Edwards, managing director of Travelworld. He said: "We are all over the moon to receive the award for Family Business of the Year. It was a great evening all round, meeting other Midlands businesses and enjoying the entertainment, we hope to be there next year too!"

The Stafford based motorhome company which specialises in premium brand motorhomes including Hymer, Niesmann + Bischoff, Carado and Dethleffs, has only recently moved to its new showrooms at Creswell Park, officially launching with a grand opening event at the end of last month.

Ross continued: "The award is perfect timing and the best way to say 'thank you' to all our staff at the showrooms. There has been a huge amount involved in our move to Stafford, and our staff have gone the extra mile on many occasions to make sure the business is in full operation and we are able to continue to offer our customers the best service."

We were at the launch of Travelworld's brand new Hymer Centre and it is easy to see why this family run business has taken home this top award. To be given Erwin Hymer status is a massive achievement and is the only Centre in Europe outside of Germany.
