On the 1st of December, the elite of the travel industry gathered for the World Travel Awards Grand Final Gala Ceremony 2018. Held for the first time in Lisbon Portugal,  at the historic Pátio da Galé to find out who amongst them had been crowned the finest in the world.

In the most important awards in Tourism, considered the Word Tourism “Oscars”, Portugal had 55 nominations in different categories and the strength of Portugal’s tourism economy was reflected with a record of 15 victories.

Portugal was voted ‘World's Leading Destination’, for the second time in a row. To add to this win, the beautiful capital of Portugal - Lisbon - has been awarded the ‘World’s Leading City Destination’ as well as the ‘World’s Leading City Break Destination’.

The “World’s Leading Conservation Company 2018” was awarded to the company who manage the amazing Sintra landmarks of Pena Palace and Pena Park. The “World’s Leading Adventure Tourist Attaction 2018” is Passadiços do Paiva, in Arouca UNESCO Global Geopark, in Portugal. Madeira won the award of “World’s Leading Island Destination 2018”.

Ana Godinho, Portugal’s tourism minister, expressed her admiration for her Country in saying: “It is with enormous pride to once again receive this distinction. To be champions of the world in tourism for the second consecutive year is a sign of Portugal’s international affirmation thanks to the efforts of all the Portuguese. Portugal is in fact must-visit destination. This is, above all, an award for all of the Portuguese.”

Portugal’s tourism office, Turismo de Portugal was once again voted the ‘Best Official Tourism Organisation in the World’. We agree with Luis Araújo, the President of Tourism de Portugal, and believe that “This new ‘oscar’ is a great reason to be proud” as he recognised “all of the staff who overcome challenges daily to complete project after project and always with a specific goal in mind: to spearhead the tourism of the future.”
