Daffodils are starting to peep through the frosty grass, days are getting longer and nights shorter. It is time to leave the long winter behind as spring takes it place and brings us this year’s World Travel Awards gala.

The World Travel Awards is one of the highest and most prestigious recognitions that can be achieved in the travel and tourism industry. It is also a window to promote and expose the leading businesses in the world.

This year’s Europe Gala Ceremony will take place on the 20th of June in Antalya, Turkey. The event will be hosted by ‘Cornelia Diamond Golf Resort & Spa’ in their stunning red and gold Citrine Ballroom. This exquisitely decorated venue holds 40 World Travel Awards and will witness one of the most important travel and tourism events of the year.

Last June, the 2019 gala was celebrated in ‘Belmond Reid’s Palace’on the breath-taking island of Madeira. This luxurious hotel is known for its exclusivity as they even have their own boutique on the fifth floor of the main building.

The gala celebrated the most unique European MICE venues, crowning the ‘Hilton Molino Stucky Venice’ as the ‘Leading conference hotel’. This classic Venetian-style hotel offers high-end amenities and services like audio-visual equipment rental, meeting rooms and secretarial service.

The 2019 ‘Leading boutique hotel’ winner was the ‘Belmond Cadogan Hotel’, located in one of London’s most desirable areas, Chelsea. Elegance embodies this Georgian-style hotel where every detail, including their chef Adam Handling’s famous ‘Cheese and truffle doughnuts’, is measured to perfection.
