Welcome to the home page for the Caribbean & The Americas Gala Ceremony

This year the event was held at the Sandals Royal Caribbean in Montego Bay, Jamaica.

The Caribbean’s leading travel brands have walked off with top honours at a VIP gala ceremony hosted by World Travel Awards (WTA) in Montego Bay, Jamaica on 19th October 2011.

VIPs, senior tourism figures, captains of industry and international media travelled from over 30 nations to attend WTA’s Caribbean & The Americas Gala Ceremony 2011 at Sandals Royal Caribbean Resort & Private Island.

Jamaica’s position as a leader in the global tourism arena was strengthened further as it was named “Caribbean’s Leading Destination” for the sixth year running. In a year that has seen visitor arrivals rise 5.7 percent, the paradise island also picked up “Caribbean’s Leading Tourist Board” and “Caribbean’s Leading Cruise Destination”.

It was also an evening of travel triumph for countries right across the Caribbean. St Lucia won the coveted title of “Caribbean’s Leading Honeymoon Destination”, whilst Sir Richard Branson’s Necker Island was voted “Caribbean Leading Private Island”.
