The plaques were awarded during the annual dinner which was also used to raise funds for the Nazaret School in Hoyo de Friusa in Bavaro. In a speech at the dinner, the Association's president, Ernesto Veloz, praised the Puntancana Group's 40th anniversary who acted as pioneers of the region's development. He also praised the Tourism Minister, Francisco Javier Garcia for his achievements in helping Punta Cana-Bavoro become a tourism destination in 2009.

Situated in the eastern province of the Dominican Republic in the La Altagracia district, Punta Cana, has been a popular tourist destination since the 1970's and is famously known for its stunning beaches which face both the Atlantic and Caribbean Ocean.

Most of the Punta Can hotels are owned by Spanish chains whilst many of the others are run and owned by European companies. The all inclusive hotels provide luxury and a range of facilities for travellers on their Punta Cana holidays. The architecture of many of the hotel buildings and resorts is evidently influenced by cultures of the Spanish, Mexican, and the native Dominicans.

The East Zones Hotels and Tourism Projects Association award of "Hotelier of the Year" went to Ignacio Subias for Manatee Park.
Other plaque winners recognised for their efforts included Tourism vice minister Virgilio Cedano, and producer of the program "Turismo, Si Gracias", Alfonso Dicenta.

The East Zone Hotels and Tourism Projects Association was founded in 1992, and has 48 members with establishments in the travel and tourism industry.
