The Venue for One of the Most Extraordinary Events in the Tourism and Hospitality Industry is already Known

The venue of the 5th Anniversary Welcome to Georgia! National Tourism Awards Gala Ceremony is already known - striking and sophisticating new place in Tbilisi - SHERATON GRAND TBILISI METECHI PALACE will host the most extraordinary event of the Tourism and Hospitality industry of Georgia, on December 6, 2019.

The Welcome to Georgia! National Tourism Awards is an annual awards ceremony held in Georgia for the field of tourism and hospitality since 2015. It has successfully established itself as a unique platform to develop the country's tourism sector, serving as a kind of "Oscars" to celebrate the achievements of the Georgian tourism and hospitality industry!

This year appears to be anniversary for the Project, so the format of the event will be quite different from the previous years, as the organizers plan to make real “Happy Birthday” evening for each of the attendees, and move from Rustaveli Theatre to the hotel venue, with Gala Evening and interesting interactive show elements. At the Awards Ceremony, winners and finalists of 26 different nominations, out of more than 250 nominees, will deservedly receive recognition for “The Best in Tourism and Hospitality.” We are also glad to mention that guests will have chance to meet the finalists and winners in the new award categories 2019: “The Best Airline Company”, “The Best Traditional Craft”, “The Best Niche Tourism”, “The Best Rural Tourism”, “The Best Small Winery”, “The Best Responsible Tourism”. Besides this, this year After-Party will be very different also, but the details are kept in secret and will be known to the guests a little bit later. 

The event will host up to 700 guests: Owners and general managers of the best hotels, restaurants, wineries, the market-leading developers, the main businesses of the country, government officials, national and local authorities, representatives of the largest hotel operators, travel agencies and tour operators, mass media and industry press, filmmakers, and etc.
