Following a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic, the annual TTG Travel Awards returned yesterday evening with its 31st edition that commemorated 41 exceptional travel and tourism players across Asia-Pacific.

Amid fierce competition, 11 awardees marked their resurgence. Having previously been awarded in 2015, both Grand Hyatt Macau and Thailand Convention & Exhibition Bureau made an incredible comeback in their respective categories – Best City Hotel – Macau, and Best Convention & Exhibition Bureau, respectively.

The Outstanding Achievement Awards category – the only non-voting segment of the awards, with winners determined by TTG’s editorial team for their remarkable contributions to the industry – recognised the Philippines as Destination of the Year; Tourism Australia for the Best Travel Marketing Effort awards; and Accor for the Most Sustainable Travel Company award.

The gala event was held at Centara Grand at CentralWorld, and coincided with IT&CM Asia and CTW Asia-Pacific double-bill event in Bangkok from September 20-22.
