World Travel Awards, the premier global awards event which aims to promote excellence in the travel and tourism industry has announced that its online voting facilities are now live on the World Travel Awards website, which can be accessed by travel professionals worldwide at

The online voting aims to make voting easy for users. It provides travel agents and tourism ministers with the unique opportunity to put forward their regional favourites at the click of a button.

Nominations are based on the previous year’s voting. Tens of thousands of travel professionals from across the globe are expected to vote until it closes on 10th October.

Winners will be announced at the World Travel Awards ceremony, one of the highlights in the travel industry calendar, hosted this year by The Plaza, New York, on the 13th October 2003.

For this special event World Travel Awards has created new travel technology categories as well as national categories for travel professionals to vote for their preferred choice within their own country. This initiative adds a new national dimension to the world’s most comprehensive travel awards ceremony with trophies awarded across the whole spectrum of the industry.


Manon Han, World Travel Awards’ Organising Director commented: “This is the first time in the awards ten year history that we have expanded the voting categories to include Travel Technology, and regional categories Australasia, and Indian Ocean, giving our nominees and winners more exposure and a broader scope.

“Technology has become an increasingly important topic in our industry and we are delighted to be able to introduce these new categories in time for our tenth anniversary. We have already received a phenomenal response and we are expecting more people to vote than ever”.

Since its inception, the World Travel Awards has established itself as a forum that brings together all areas of travel and tourism in celebration and recognition of their achievements. The event also provides a formal and informal networking opportunity for leading decision makers and thought leaders in the travel industry.
