The paradise island of Phu Quoc, Vietnam is making final preparations as it steps up to host the World Travel Awards Asia & Oceania Gala Ceremony 2019 on October 12th.
The leading travel industry figureheads from across Asia and Oceania are gathering for the red-carpet reception at Vinpearl Convention Centre Phu Quoc.
The VIP evening will form the sixth and final regional leg of the WTA Grand Tour 2019 – a global search for the finest travel and tourism brands in the world.
Vinpearl Convention Centre Phu Quoc is a state-of-the-art meeting and event facility, as well as the latest addition to the five-star Vinpearl Phu Quoc integrated complex.
It features eight meeting rooms and a grand ballroom that can accommodate up to 2,390 guests.
It enjoys a spectacular location on Bai Dai Beach, and adjacent to the luxury retreats Vinpearl Resort & Spa Phu Quoc and VinOasis.
The pristine island of Phu Quoc is a hidden lush paradise off the southern coast of Vietnam.
Surrounded by the warm turquoise waters of the Gulf of Thailand, the island is renowned for its stunning beaches, unblemished habitat, relaxing atmosphere and world-class scuba diving.
