The best bag

On this side of the Atlantic, people are just about to settle in for the last evening of football for the 2011-12 season. 

Tomorrow night TravelPlus will be hosting its annual Amenity Bag Awards. TravelPlus (the spirit of frequent travel) released its short list of amenity bags, and the airline's suppliers last month. Tomorrow night, at an event at the Chesterfield Mayfair, the winners will be announced.

We wish luck to all the entrants, while diplomatically deciding not to take sides. But you'll see plenty of coverage on the amenity bag market when PAX International brings its latest issue to the AIX/WTCE event in Hamburg.  

In case you missed it, last year was the 60th anniversary of the amenity bag, first called The Speedbird Beauty Kit. It was created by Elizabeth Arden for B.O.A.C. Thanks to Simon Ward at TravelPlus for putting together an interesting history of the product.
