The World Travel Awards (WTA) Grand Final Gala Ceremony 2018 will take place at Lisbon’s historic Patio da Gale on 1st December 2018, with the leading decision-makers, figureheads and influencers of travel set to attend the event.
The evening will mark the climax of the WTA Grand Tour 2018, which is an annual search for the finest travel and tourism organizations in the world, where the winners of WTA’s six regional ceremonies would vie head-to-head for the coveted World titles.
WTA is currently celebrating its 25th anniversary and it would be the first ever ceremony to be hosted in Lisbon.
Graham Cooke, Founder & President, WTA, said: “I am honoured that the delightful city of Lisbon is forming the climax of WTA’s Silver Jubilee anniversary of celebrating and rewarding excellence in travel. With its cobbled alleyways, historic buildings and cinematic hillsides, the Portuguese capital charmingly blends traditional heritage with modernism to form one of the world’s great cities.”
Paula Oliveira, Executive Director, Turismo de Lisboa, said: “We are proud to welcome professionals from all over the world to our city. We host the ceremony at the very heart of historic Lisbon knowing guests will have an enjoyable time.”
As part of its Grand Tour 2018, WTA has hosted ceremonies in Ras Al Khaimah (UAE), Athens (Greece), Hong Kong, Guayaquil (Ecuador), Jamaica and Durban (South Africa) with the winners progressing to the Grand Final in Lisbon.
