World Travel Awards Europe Gala Ceremony set for Turkey

Leading travel brands and organisations are set to go head to head later this month in what promises to be a thrilling World Travel Awards Europe Gala Ceremony.

The event will be hosted by the Cornelia Diamond Golf Resort & Spa in Antalya, Turkey on August 31st 2013, with the show returning from the second time in three years.

Hailed as ‘the Oscars of the travel industry’, World Travel Awards is acknowledged across the globe as the ultimate travel accolade, and celebrates those brands that are pushing the boundaries of industry excellence.

Cornelia Diamond Golf Resort & Spa provides the perfect setting for the event, exemplifying the spirit of World Travel Awards to push the boundaries of excellence in travel and tourism. 

Since opening, the resort has rapidly established itself as the ultimate place for golf and luxury, amidst an idyllic Mediterranean setting.

More than 500 organisations from across Europe, spanning dozens of categories, have been nominated for the competition for the most influential accolade in travel.

WTA president Graham Cooke said: “During times of economic uncertainty world-class brands come into their own, continuing to grow market share whilst competitors flounder.

“Turkey in particular has showed its credentials as a world-class tourism brand, demonstrated in the number of top honours won by the nation’s top hotels and travel organisations.

“Antalya in particular represents brand Turkey at its finest.

“Its winning mix of heritage, sun-kissed beaches, state-of-the-art facilities and superb value has propelled it into the league of one of the world’s great destination cities.”

Over 57 countries will compete for the accolades across 76 categories which include ‘Europe’s Leading Airline’, ‘Europe’s Leading Car Hire’, ‘Europe’s Leading Hotel’, ‘Europe’s Leading Hotel Brand’ and ‘Europe’s Leading Resort’.
