We are proud to declare that the global luxury travel network Virtuoso applauded us, the German National Tourist Office (GNTO) as the winner of 2018’s sought-after Top Destination of the Year Award at the 30th annual Virtuoso Travel Week.
George Vella, our Head of Sales North America, received the award at the Tourism Board Awards Alliance Partner Lunch, organized on August 12, 2018, at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas. The tribute is particularly important as only a small part of the network’s 1,700 partners are honored at Virtuoso Travel Week.
To quote Albert Herrera, senior vice president, Global Product Partnerships at Virtuoso, “GNTO’s achievements, including their thorough knowledge and superior service, coupled with the value they place on the travel advisor relationship, have helped Virtuoso become the industry-leading network it is today. As one of our exclusive award winners, the GNTO is enhancing Virtuoso’s reputation as a trailblazer in luxury travel, providing the network with a competitive edge in the products and benefits we offer savvy travelers around the world.”
George Vella highlighted the significance of the partnership with Virtuoso: “It is a real honor and pleasure to receive the Top Destination of the Year award from Virtuoso, the travel industry’s leading and most prestigious world travel network. For the last several years, Virtuoso offered the GNTO professional educational platforms, to execute the power of human connection with Virtuoso’s elite advisors and communicate Germany’s upscale product.”
