The 2015 Tourism for Tomorrow Awards hosted by World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) are still open for entries until the 14th of November 2014. WTTC is encouraging businesses and organisations committed to sustainable tourism to apply before the deadline to ensure their efforts are recognised.
What are the Awards for? The Awards are one of the world’s highest accolades in the Travel & Tourism sector, aimed at recognising best practice in sustainable tourism.
How do the Awards work? Candidates can apply in one of the six Award Categories: Community, Destination, Environment, Innovation, People and Sustainable Business. Judging process is based on three-steps: Finalist Selection, On-site Visit by an expert and Winner Selection. An international team of over 20 judges, representing a wide range of professional backgrounds and expertise in the Travel & Tourism, first choose three finalists in each category to later decide on the winners.
How to apply? If you think your organisation has what it takes to be a winner, we want to hear from you. To start the process, applicants have to register online via Online Application Tool. Once registered, candidates can fill in the form, double check, save along the way, and return to the application form multiple times before submitting. It’s FREE to apply.
Why apply? Becoming a finalist means you will receive corporate endorsement by a panel of internationally acclaimed experts in sustainable tourism, an invitation to the grand awards ceremony at the 15th WTTC Global Summit in Madrid, Spain, on 15-16 April 2015 and complimentary flights and accommodation to during the Summit. Being shortlisted also means great opportunities to network at the conference, the outstanding international Media exposure and promotion through our communication channels, including the Tourism for Tomorrow Newsletter.
