The Peruvian Ministry of Foreign Trade and Tourism (Mincetur)
and Peru's Exports and Tourism Promotion Board (PromPeru)
on Wednesday proudly announced that our country won four World Travel Awards
in the South American region.
The categories in which Peru prevailed are the following:
"The awards granted to our country reaffirm the tourism-related positioning of Peru in the world as a destination relying on vast cultural and natural wealth, in addition to highlighting the magnificence of Machu Picchu as a leading tourist destination in the region and (PromPeru) as leading State-run agency in promoting tourism," Foreign Trade and Tourism Minister Roberto Sanchez
The awards were handed out —in an emotional and symbolic event— at Expo 2020 Dubai's Peruvian pavilion
with the presence of PromPeru Executive-President Amora Carbajal and World Travel Awards founder Graham Cooke.
The South American awards version is just the beginning given that the global WTA awards will be held in Moscow (Russia) on November 26.
For that event, Peru also has earned several important nominations. Thus, everyone is invited to renew their participation by voting for the Inca country in the global category competition:
The World Travel Awards serve to recognize and celebrate excellence in all sectors of the global travel and tourism industry.
It is worth mentioning that the accolades were awarded within the framework of the symbolic inauguration of the Peruvian pavilion at the Expo 2020 Dubai.
