About World Travel Awards

World Travel Awards™ was established in 1993 to acknowledge, reward and celebrate excellence across all key sectors of the travel, tourism and hospitality industries. Today, the World Travel Awards™ brand is recognised globally as the ultimate hallmark of industry excellence.

World Travel Awards™ celebrates its 28th anniversary year in 2021. Its annual programme is renowned as the most prestigious and comprehensive in the global industry. Each year World Travel Awards™ covers the globe with its Grand Tour – a series of regional gala ceremonies to recognise excellence within each continent, culminating in a Grand Final at the end of the year.

World Travel Awards™ gala ceremonies are regarded as milestone events in the travel calendar, attended by the industry's key decision-makers, figureheads, influencers and media. The programme, its winners and its sponsors are represented globally on social media, with fresh daily content across multiple platforms.

Despite the ongoing global challenges, the appetite for travel has reached unprecedented levels. Evidence is reflected in the World Travel Awards™ annual voting figures. In 2019, we reported a record 1,945,965 votes cast, a 17% increase on the previous record. In 2020, a record 2,033,494 votes were cast, with more people taking part than in any other year of WTA's 28-year history, representing a huge vote of confidence for the travel and tourism industry.
