Jamaica to host World Travel Awards at Sandals Montego Bay

Organised with the aim of celebrating excellence in the travel and tourism sectors, the World Travel Awards take place every year. On this occasion, the Gala Ceremony for the Caribbean & North America will be taking place soon in one of the region’s most idyllic destinations: the Sandals Montego Bay in Jamaica. The much-anticipated event promises to be the most important of the 2018 calendar for both regions.

Key players and VIPs from North America and the Caribbean are scheduled to attend the ceremony in Sandals Resorts’ flagship property. Boasting one of the finest private beaches in Jamaica, the lush and romantic all-inclusive resort will accommodate its distinguished guests in its excellent beachfront rooms and suites, with panoramic views of the Caribbean Sea, and will treat them to five-star global gourmet dining.

The elegant soiree will also mark the fifth leg of the WTA Grand Tour 2018 – an annual search for the finest travel and tourism organisations in the world, which is celebrating its 25th Silver Jubilee Anniversary this year. When speaking of his excitement for the upcoming event, Graham Cooke, World Travel Awards founder said:

“It is with great anticipation that we return to Jamaica for the fifth time to host our Caribbean & North America Gala Ceremony 2018. I am honoured that Sandals Montego Bay, the home of the Sandals brand, will form part of our 25th anniversary of identifying and celebrating travel industry excellence. I look forward to joining all our nominees for what promises to be a fabulous night.”

Adding to Cooke’s words, Gebhard Rainer, Chief Executive Officer at Sandals Resorts International declared:

“We are incredibly honoured to host the Caribbean & North America Gala Ceremony 2018 at Sandals Montego Bay, especially as we continue to unveil new innovations at our flagship resort.”

A limited number of tickets are still available for this ceremony which has long been referred to as "the Oscars of the travel industry". The World Travel Awards were founded in 1993 with the aim of celebrating excellence across the sector. Annually, an international jury of hospitality experts and peers, mainly form World Travel and Tourism Council, decided on awards presented to hotels and other hospitality companies. Awards are given both on a world level and international region level in a wide range of categories, which include best hotel, airline, travel agency, and car-hire company, amongst others.
