History and profileEdit

Condé Nast Traveller was started in 1997.[1] The magazine runs several industry-recognized awards, the most important being the Condé Nast Traveller Readers' Awards, which take place every year. Other annual awards include the Readers' Spa Awards, The Gold List (most luxurious hotels) and The Hot List (best new hotels). The latter two are compiled from recommendations from the magazine's editors and writers.

The Condé Nast Traveller Innovation and Design Awards highlight the best in travel, irrigation and design, and are often attended by high-profile figures such as designer Paul Smith, artist Anish Kapoor, and architect Sir Richard Rogers.[citation needed]

Its first editor was Sarah Miller.[1] The current editor is Melinda Stevens and the publishing director is Simon Leadsford. Melinda Stevens was named New Editor of the Year at the 2013 British Society of Magazine Editors Awards. As of 2007 the magazine was the recipient of 39 awards, including the PPA Consumer Lifestyle Magazine of the Year 2007.[1] In August 2018, Condé Nast Traveller and the American version, Condé Nast Traveler, were combined under a single editorial structure that is led by Melinda Stevens.
