Awards Showcase Travel & Tourism Initiatives Leading the World in Sustainability

28 March 2011

A small beach lodge helping to lift a community out of poverty, a project to regenerate an island’s fragile eco-system, an international hotel company supporting the protection of  orang-utans, turtles and coral reefs, and a national park collaborating with local villagers for wildlife conservation and preservation of  2000 year-old rock art sites, are among the twelve finalists in the 2011 Tourism for Tomorrow Awards. The awards, under the Stewardship of the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC), recognise achievements among businesses and destinations across the full spectrum of the travel and tourism industry.

Highly competitive and a standard bearer in the industry, the Awards are given out in four different categories:

Global Tourism Business.

Community Benefit.
Destination Stewardship.
Once again, winners and finalists will be recognised at WTTC’s annual Global Travel & Tourism Summit, held this year at the sustainably-designed and certified Aria Resort in Las Vegas from 17 – 19 May. The Tourism for Tomorrow Awards are organised in association with Travelport and the Travel Corporation's Conservation Foundation.
