World Travel Awards will take place in Greece, Athens, on August 1 to August 3. “Divani Apollon & Thalasso” hotel will host the ceremony of the Awards and all visitors will have the chance to enjoy various activities.
Senior representatives of Europe’s finest travel brands and travelling agents as well as foreign media are scheduled to attend the ceremony. They will be offered a full organized tour to discover Athen’s and Attica’s hotspots to form an overall- and hopefully positive – view of the capital.
The tour will include visits in Saronicos bay and Acropolis.
The main event will take place on August 2, when the awards will be presented. WTA will be held in partnership with the Greek National Tourism Organization and the Association of Greek Tourism Enterprises.
The deadline for the candidates to apply is June 23 and applications are already up to 2,500. Graham E Cook, president and founder of WTA, underlined that: “The selection of our hosts is fundamental to the success of our awards programme, and Athens possesses all the ingredients to rise to the challenge of hosting our Europe Ceremony 2014. Working closely with Divani Apollon Palace & Thalasso, we have put together a whistle-stop tour of Greek highlights.”
Niki Fotiou, Marketing & PR Manager, Divani Collection Hotels, stated: “Our goal is to organize truly memorable moments for everyone to share. We want to offer to our guests a real taste of Greece and all that Athens has to offer.”
WTA is nothing less than the “Oscars of travel industry” and are organized for the 21st consecutive year. It is worth mentioning that the event will be covered by New York Times, Le Monde, TV5, Focus, Travel News, TTN and other important media.
