Travel Channel announced today that the Travel Channel Travel Sweepstakes is ending and that it will be picking a new TV series to launch in 2018.
“The Travel Channel is proud to announce that our 2018 sweepstakes is over,” said the channel in a statement.
“We’re thrilled that so many of our loyal viewers and viewers around the world were able to participate in our 2018 Sweepstakes.
It was an incredible and rewarding year and we’re thankful for all of the amazing people who participated.”
Travel Channel’s new series will premiere on Travel Channel, Travel + Leisure, Discovery Channel, Discovery Digital and Channel 101.
It will be produced by the Travel + Lifestyle and Travel Channel Productions.
“Travel Channel is thrilled to have such a huge audience and we couldn’t be more excited to work with our partners at Travel Channel on our next project,” said Travel Channel President and CEO Rob Goldstone.
“It’s a very exciting time for Travel Channel and its fans.
This year’s sweepstakes was the culmination of many years of hard work and passionate community engagement.”
In 2018, Travel and Leisure partnered with the Travel & Leisure Group, which oversees the Travel, Travel+ & Leash brand, to create a sweepstakes to create the TravelChannelTravelRewards program, which rewarded viewers for their loyalty and engagement.
“As Travel and Travel+ has expanded its reach to include more and more destinations and viewers, the Travel Sweepstake has always been a great way to engage with viewers in ways that can make a real difference in their lives,” said Mark Burnett, chairman of Travel and Entertainment, and CEO of the Travel+ Group.
“In 2018, we will continue to work closely with Travel Channel to ensure the sweepstakes continues and reaches its full potential.”
