Portugal, Leading Destination in 2017 by the World Travel Awards.

Last September, Portugal was one of the big winners at World’s Travel Awards’ Europe Gala Ceremony 2017. The country was voted Europe’s Leading Destination and Portugal’s Leading Conference Hotel 2017 among others. In addition, the Portuguese archipielago of Madeira obtained the Europe’s Leading Island Destination Award and El Algarve, located in South Portugal, was recognized as Europe’s Leading Beach Destination 2017.

The World Travel Awards recognize the winner countries with the hallmark of quality and also set the mark to which others countries will aspire in the future.

Spain received awards too, like the Europe’s Leading Meetings and Conference Centre 2017 (Barcelona), the Spain’s Leading MICE Hotel 2017 and the Spain’s Leading Business Hotel 2017.

On a night of high drama in host city St. Petersburg, Portugal was voted Europe’s Leading Destination with Turismo de Portugal, scooping the prize for Europe’s Leading Tourist Board.

The president and Founder of the World Travel Awards, Graham Cooke, declared it was an honor to visit Russia for the first time and he wanted to congratulate all the winners. Cooke also said that he was sure St. Petersburg is going to take “its rightful place as a top rank tourism destination”.

Cititravel DMC Presented with Prestigious European Award for Merit in Work

The European Association of Economy and Competitiveness was created to promote, develop and recognise the mechanisms of companies that demonstrate excellence in business development and performance within a European framework.

The Association’s annual awards pick out high achievers across a number of fields including entrepreneurs, doctors, lawyers, magistrates and communication experts. This year Cititravel, organisers of corporate events in Spain and Portugal, joined their ranks as the proud recipient of the European Gold Medal for Merit in Work.

Companies that receive this award are recognised as a model to follow and a benchmark in their field. Factors taken into account are quality, innovation, entrepreneurial spirit and business awareness – all of which Cititravel has displayed in abundance over more than three decades of offering clients the highest levels of service, always striving to exceed expectations.

The award ceremony took place at the NH Collection Madrid Eurobuilding on 15 September 2017 attended by high ranking dignitaries from all over the continent. After having won multiple prizes on a national and international level in the world of corporate group travel, winning this award, Europe-wide and with all business sectors eligible, is especially satisfying for Cititravel DMC.
