NEW YORK, Nov. 22, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The Points Guy (TPG), the trusted travel and lifestyle media platform focused on maximizing travel experiences while minimizing spending, will host the TPG Awards at Terminal 5 in New York on December 7, 2022. The show will celebrate excellence in travel, loyalty and credit cards and honor heroes who serve as inspiration to travelers around the world. The Points Guy team will present awards such as Best US Airline Loyalty Program, Best All-Around Credit Card and Best Hotel Loyalty Program, and the program will feature exclusive performances from a surprise musical guest and renowned DJ Lina Bradford.
The evening will be sponsored by industry leaders including Expedia, Moderna, Capital One, Hilton, Wells Fargo and CLEAR. Sponsors will assist in providing interactive lounges, photo booths, and immersive activations for guests onsite. Additionally, The Points Guy’s sister brand, Lonely Planet, will also take the stage as an event partner, honoring the must-visit destinations for 2023 from its popular franchise Best In Travel.
“This year has been huge for the travel industry as we have seen a renewed interest following the height of the pandemic,” said The Points Guy Founder Brian Kelly. “We’re so excited to be back together for the TPG Awards to showcase the leaders and brands that are transforming the industry and helping travelers get the most value out of their points and miles.”
As part of the show, Paul Veneto of Paulie’s Push – a retired United Airlines flight attendant – will be honored with the Hero Award for his ongoing mission to give tribute to his fallen flight crew colleagues and ‘first, first responders’ of 9/11. The Hero Award is notoriously given to someone who has made a positive impact on the world of travel, as well as dedicated their life to the industry, and embodies courage, passion and grit. In 2021, the world watched as Veneto pushed an airline beverage cart from Boston-Logan International Airport to Ground Zero. And in 2022, he turned his attention to Washington, where he pushed a cart from Washington Dulles International Airport to the Pentagon along a route representing the flight path of American Airlines Flight 77. Paulie continues to spread his message of hope in all the work he does, and The Points Guy is delighted to spotlight his inspiration. Past winners have included Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger and Beverley Bass.
Since 2018, The Points Guy has recognized the best in airlines, travel, credit cards, and loyalty programs through the annual TPG Awards. Nominees for the TPG Awards are broken up into two categories: The Editors’ Choice Awards, as determined by the TPG editorial team, and the Readers’ Choice Awards, as voted on by the general public online. The Editors’ Choice Award nominees were selected by TPG editors who have worked to thoroughly assess which products and companies were the best in each category.

The return of Bob Iger as CEO of The Walt Disney Co. raises a lot of questions on the future of the parks — specifically what decision reversals he may have in mind from his predecessor, Bob Chapek. Iger, who was CEO before Chapek for 15 years, has come back with a warm welcome from many Disney fans. Comments on fan sites such as WDWMagic show a majority of support for the change, and even celebrities such as actor Josh Gad, who has played roles in Disney's Frozen and Beauty and the Beast films, celebrated the decision, via his social media account.
Private airport lounges are one of those topics that seem innocuous, but are actually surprisingly divisive upon closer inspection. One of the most well-known airport lounges is the Delta Sky Club , which debuted in 2009, replacing the previous lounges the Delta Crown Room Club and Northwest Airlines WorldClubs. The Sky Club offers free food (which is generally considered fresher and better than what you'll find in the airport food court), free Wi-Fi and flight assistance.
