How will this year’s awards be dif­fer­ent from the last?

As an award cer­e­mony recog­nis­ing the best in the busi­ness and cel­e­brat­ing ex­cel­lence, the Ara­bian Travel Awards this year prom­ises to be big­ger and bet­ter. After the first edi­tion last year, mar­ket­ing and pro­mo­tion ac­tiv­i­ties for the awards were in­stantly rolled out to in­crease aware­ness about the awards. Plat­forms such as Ara­bian Travel Mar­ket were used to pro­mote the award cer­e­mony and mo­ti­vate win­ners. The win­ners cel­e­brated their vic­tory added to the pub­lic­ity of the event. The black-tie for­mal cer­e­mony this year will hope­fully leave ev­ery­one cel­e­brat­ing and smil­ing. How does one nom­i­nate? The nom­i­nat­ing and vot­ing process is on­line. As the awards are by the in­dus­try and for the in­dus­try, we en­cour­age par­tic­i­pants to nom­i­nate them­selves and cel­e­brate their achieve­ments. Nom­i­na­tions re­ceiv­ing the high­est num­ber of votes are then de­clared win­ners after vot­ing is closed. All the in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing nom­i­na­tions is avail­able on the web­site— www.ara­bi­antrav­elawards.ae. To nom­i­nate, one can visit the nom­i­na­tion page, where there are cat­e­gories and sub-cat­e­gories. Se­lect the right op­tion, fill the form and send it to us. We will send a con­fir­ma­tion email with a vot­ing link.

Any en­trants for New Ho­tel or New Re­sort cat­e­gories will be el­i­gi­ble to en­ter if, at the time of ap­ply­ing, they opened within the past 12 months.
