This decision was reached by travel agents worldwide.
The World Travel Awards were established in 1993 to acknowledge, reward and celebrate the enormous achievements to be found in all sectors of the global travel industry. Candidates for nomination are based upon the previous year’s voting. This is the world’s most comprehensive travel awards ceremony, with trophies awarded in all areas of the industry. Voting is cast by travel agents in over 200 countries around the world. Regional geographical categories are broken down from the Whole World category into eight smaller areas – Africa, Asia/Pacific, Caribbean, Central & Latin America, Europe, Middle East, North America and South America. Hundreds and thousands of votes each year are registered online at the official World Travel Awards website, with most of the leading travel internet sites offering additional online voting facilities.
This year’s voting campaign reached a total of 167,000 travel professionals worldwide, including 110,000 travel agents. The Gala Awards Ceremony will took place in Turks & Caicos on the 20th of September 2006.
