Submission for the 12th Thailand Tourism Awards, the country’s most prestigious awards that recognises the Thai travel industry’s best and brightest, opens from 1st February to 30th April, 2019.
Mr.Yuthasak Supasorn, TAT Governor, said the Awards have helped develop Thailand’s tourism industry towards a more sustainable future. The Thailand Tourism Awards recognise operators of tourism products and services that are committed on sustainable operation and management whilst meeting the high possible standards for quality. “These awards also serve as a catalyst for the winners, who benefit by leveraging the publicity and increased interested in their products that help drive business development.” Mr. Yuthasak also highlighted what was new for the 12th edition including simplifying the Awards into three main categories comprising 12 sub segments.
There are now six awards in the attraction category: Outdoor Adventure Activity, Learning and Doing, Nature and Park, Fun and Entertainment, Historical and Culture, and Local and Community. The accommodation sector now comprises four awards: Luxury Hotel, Location Hotel, Resort and Design Hotel. Whilst the health and wellness tourism sector now has two award categories: Spa and Wellness Retreat.
TAT executives and industry partners announce the 12th Thailand Tourism Awards’ opening for submissions. Selection and judging process is now classified under three concepts: sustainable tourism, tourist voice and tourist interest. Experts and academics from tourism-related segments are appointed as a panel of judges to select the winners. Winners benefit by receiving a 50% discount when attending the TAT’s travel shows in Thailand and overseas and invited to partner with TAT in its marketing activities.
