Portugal wins 26 awards in the ‘Oscars of Tourism’
The World Travel Awards took place at the end of last month with the Algarve, the Azores and Madeira standing out at the awards ceremony.
Considered the ‘Oscars of Tourism’, the World Travel Awards was established in 1993 to acknowledge, reward and celebrate excellence globally across all sectors of the tourism industry.
Today, the WTA brand is recognised as the ultimate hallmark of quality, with winners setting the benchmark to which all others aspire.
Votes for the awards are cast online by 200,000 travel industry professionals and the public from 160 countries, with the nominee gaining the most votes in a category named as the winner.
This year, Portugal and Portuguese companies were nominated for around 50 categories, having achieved the distinction in 26.
