The World Travel Awards were conceived in 1993 to
acknowledge and celebrate excellence in the world's travel

professionals and discerning travelers have come to regard
the World Travel Awards as the very best endorsement that a
travel product could hope to receive. These Awards are
especially coveted as, uniquely, the votes are cast globally
by fellow professionals.
