Travel Agent Appreciation

WTTC calls for entries

The World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) is calling on tourism businesses, organizations and destinations worldwide to apply for its annual Tourism for Tomorrow Awards. Each year, the Tourism for Tomorrow Awards recognize global leadership in sustainable tourism best practices. Due to its rigorous three-step judging process involving 22 independent expert judges from all around the world, and including an on-site evaluation of all award finalists, the Awards have become one of the highest accolades in the global travel and tourism industry. Applicants should demonstrate how they are actively engaged in a successful programme of sustainable tourism practices and management, including maximizing social and economic benefits for local people, reducing negative impacts to the environment, and supporting the protection of cultural and natural heritage in destinations where they operate. Award applicants may enter in one of four Award categories: Global Tourism Business, Conservation, Community Benefit, and Destination Stewardship and can submit their entries online at until Nov. 26, 2012.
