The venue of the Grand Final Gala Ceremony has been upgraded to the five-star luxury retreat The Sun Siyam Iru Fushi. As the opportunity has arisen to upgrade the World Travel Awards Grand Final Gala Ceremony, it is set to take place at The Sun Siyam Iru Fushi on the 2nd December 2016.
Unfolding over 52 acres of natural perfection, The Sun Siyam Iru Fushi is the perfect venue for the Grand Final 2016 and a world away from the everyday. Reflecting a last minute surge in demand for space at the event, the venue has moved from the smaller Olhuveli Beach & Spa, Maldives, to the larger The Sun Siyam Iru Fushi.
Both are operated by the Sun Siyam Resorts.
World Travel Awards President Graham Cooke said: “It will be our pleasure to welcome guests to The Sun Siyam Iru Fushi. Upgrading to the new, larger venue ahead of the Grand Final 2016 will allow us to welcome a larger delegation from around the world here in the Maldives.”
World Travel Awards was established in 1993 to acknowledge, reward and celebrate excellence across all sectors of the tourism industry. Today, the World Travel Awards brand is recognised globally as the ultimate hallmark of quality, with winners setting the benchmark to which all others aspire. Each year World Travel Awards covers the globe with a series of regional gala ceremonies staged to recognise and celebrate individual and collective successes within each key geographical region.
Regional Gala Ceremonies have already taken place in Tanzania, Peru, Italy, Jamaica, Vietnam and the United Arab Emirates throughout the year.
World Travel Awards Gala Ceremonies are widely regarded as the best networking opportunities in the travel industry, attended by government and industry leaders, luminaries, and international print and broadcast media.
