They will include awards for the Best Business Hotel, Best Family Friendly Hotel, Best City Hotel, Best Green Hotel, Best Leisure Hotel, Best Destination Management Company, Best Hotel Apartments, Best B2B Travel Portal and Best Luxury Hotel, to name a few.
“We are getting everything ready for the third edition of Arabian Travel Awards which will be held in the new Dubai area adjacent to the Tecom area. Our hospitality partner this year is Westin Mina Seyahi Beach Resort and Marina, and at the same time we are very happy to announce our partnership for the third consecutive year with Travelport. Having one of the world’s biggest GDS platforms as a partner is not a mean feat to achieve and we are happy that our association has only grown over the years. This is also a great opportunity for our award winners who will be recognised on a global scale thanks to the platform that Travelport provides to them. We hope that this association will scale new heights,” states Nikhil Jeet, Director, Arabian Travel Awards.
