Organised by WTM London, with the participation of the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), along with an independent panel of expert judges, the 13 awards showcase the best in class of the global travel and tourism industry, in front of an audience of 500+ senior industry professionals

A carefully selected independent panel of judges will make the awards a reality. Every judge will be a prominent member of the travel community, with the right experience and know- how to select the very first WTM Award winners.

WTM Portfolio Conference and Seminar Manager and co-founder of the WTM Awards, Charlotte Alderslade, said: “We are delighted to announce the launch of these brand-new and unique awards for the global travel and tourism industry. The WTM Awards are the only opportunity to celebrate and reward those destinations and private sector companies that go above and beyond with their global campaigns and strategies and see outstanding results, which deserve to be recognized.

WTM Portfolio Press and PR Manager and WTM Awards co-founder, Paul Nelson, added: “WTM London is the perfect backdrop for the WTM Awards as there are more than 51,000 senior travel and tourism industry professionals from 182 countries are in London to conduct around £3 billion in business deals.

“The WTM Awards provide the travel industry the perfect opportunity to get together and celebrate excellence in the industry on the back of securing those all-important business deals which could form the backbone of future winners at the WTM Awards.”

The Awards will be held in the heart of London’s thriving enterprise zone, at Tobacco Dock, just a few stops on the Dockland Light Railway from WTM London’s ExCeL venue or a short taxi ride away.

The famous London landmark soaked in history is a grade 1 listed warehouse built in 1811 serving primarily as a store for imported tobacco. It now offers stunning timber beams and beautiful architecture, making it the perfect event space for this cool, stylish and glamourous awards ceremony.
