For this event leading travel companies, operators and holiday destinations from across North, Central, South America and the Caribbean will meet under one roof as they battle it out to see who will walk away with the coveted World Travel Awards. Speaking on how the chosen hotel represented some of the magic that can be experienced during Jamaica holidays, Sandals Resorts Founder and Chairman Gordon “Butch” Stewart said: “We are thrilled to be hosting the World Travel Awards Americas Gala Ceremony at Sandals Whitehouse. This magnificent resort located in such a pristine setting as Jamaica’s stunning south coast, is the perfect backdrop to showcase the best that the region has to offer.”
John Lynch, Jamaica’s Director of Tourism, was pleased that the island was selected to host the event and hoped it would show the travel world what Jamaica holidays were all about. “Jamaica is honoured to be chosen as the host destination for the prestigious Americas gala of the 2010 World Travel Awards. We are confident that the event will showcase the destination to a global audience, demonstrating the reason Jamaica has enjoyed tremendous success over the years. We anticipate that this will serve as a precursor to the major event later this year, underscoring the fact that Jamaica, with its unrivalled offerings, attractions and easy access, is an ideal destination that caters to all travellers.” - he said.
Graham E Cooke, Founder and President, World Travel Awards, added: “Jamaica is the perfect location to host this year’s Americas Event. We look forward to working with the team at Jamaica Tourist Board and Sandals Resorts for what I know will be an exciting evening for the tourism industry.”
Bringing together North, South, Central America and the Caribbean will make for a thrilling ceremony and there will no doubt be a real competitive edge in the air that should make for some interesting results”.
