World Travel Awards taking final call for nominations


World Travel Awards is issuing a final call for all those organizations aspiring to be recognized as the best in travel in 2011.

Organizations looking to be considered for one of these prestigious awards have just one week left to meet the self-nomination deadline.

Last year saw an unprecedented number of organizations battling it out to gain one of the highly-coveted World Travel Awards trophies, with a 50 percent rise in self nominations. The momentum going into 2011 is equally strong as the “Oscars of the travel industry” goes from strength to strength.

Previous winners have realized the commercial benefits and kudos that accompanies winning a World Travel Award. The competition to retain their titles in 2011 is expected to be fiercer than ever, given the quality of new properties entering the market, coupled with existing ones raising their game.
Entry is now open for categories in Africa, Asia, Australasia, the Caribbean, Central America, Europe, Indian Ocean, Middle East, North America, South America, Travel Technology, and World.

The entry form can be completed online or downloaded from .

Nomination submission deadline will be Friday, February 4.

The complete nominations list will be announced in time for ITB in March. Voting will then open and be carried out by an audience of 183,000 travel agents and tourism professionals from 164 countries, as well as visitors to World Travel Awards website who are encouraged to submit their votes via the online voting system.
