Hailed by the Wall Street Journal as the "Travel industry's equivalent to the Oscars", the World Travel Awards are considered as one of the most comprehensive and prestigious events in the global travel industry today. Each year the coveted World Travel Awards attracts VIPs, senior tourism figures and international media, hitting the travel industry community and building to a crescendo with the annual Awards Presentation Ceremony. The World Travel Awards were established in 1993 to acknowledge, reward and celebrate the enormous achievements found in all sectors of the global travel industry.
“These awards attest to our strong passion to lead the hospitality industry by staying ahead of the pack and by surpassing the growing expectations of our clients. We share this vision with our entire colleagues and it is through our joint efforts and unmatchable professionalism that we have been able to achieve this remarkable success. We are pleased that our hard work as an organization has been acknowledged once again,” concluded Mr. Nowais.
