World Travel Awards lands in Lima ahead of Latin America Gala Ceremony 2016

28 June 2016 - Lima, Peru

Peruvian capital Lima is beginning the final preparations for the World Travel Awards Latin America Gala Ceremony 2016.

The event will take place at Swissôtel Lima on Friday, July 1st.

Hundreds of leaders from across the hospitality industry will attend the red carpet ceremony, with the best among them recognised with the prestigious World Travel Awards trophies.

Each World Travel Awards Gala Ceremony offers unrivalled networking opportunities to members of the travel and tourism industry, with the events welcoming government and industry leaders as well as international print and broadcast media.

World Travel Awards President Graham Cooke said: “It will be an honour to welcome the nominees for the World Travel Awards Latin America Gala Ceremony to Peru and to the wonderful Swissôtel Lima.

“This is a world-class property and the ideal stage for us to showcase the best of regional hospitality.”

It will be the second time World Travel Awards has visited Peru, following a rapturously received debut in 2013, and first the time industry leading event has been welcomed to Swissôtel Lima.

An elegant and modern luxury hotel, Swissôtel Lima is located in the heart of San Isidro, the most attractive business, residential and cultural district of the city.

The five-star luxury hotel recently completed a multi-million dollar expansion, making it the place to be and be seen in Peru.

Partners for the Latin America Gala Ceremony 2016 include Delta Air Lines, TV5 Monde, Swissôtel Lima and PromPerú.
