List of Finalists: 2018 Qantas Business Travel Awards

Now on its second year, the 2018 Qantas Business Travel Awards aims to “recognise the places that make doing business more pleasure than pain.” With 10 categories, the awards team seeks to identify anything from the best business hotels to the best place to have a breakfast meeting in. This year, Sydney comes in with the most number of finalists across all categories (fourteen finalists). Followed by Melbourne (10 finalists), and then Perth (seven nominations). Winners will be publicly announced in the July issue of the Qantas inflight magazine.
