World Travel Awards, the biggest and the most prestigious awards programme in the travel industry worldwide will be returning to India in 2012 to host its Asia & Australasia Ceremony at the Oberoi Gurgaon in Delhi.

The organisers of the “Oscars of the travel industry” selected the Indian capital as host due to its continuing evolution as a world-class business and leisure destination, spearheaded by its thriving luxury hospitality sector, a statement said.
