Condé Nast Traveller India returns with the third edition of the Readers’ Travel Awards (RTA). Readers are invited to vote for their favourite destinations, hotels, airlines, tour operators and spas across 25 categories by filling the Readers’ Travel Questionnaire in the Condé Nast Traveller June-July 2013 issue or online at www.cntraveller.in/rta. Entries close on July 31. The winners of RTA will be announced at an awards ceremony to be held at the yearend.
Divia Thani Daswani, Editor, Condé Nast Traveller India, said, “Over the years, the Readers’ Travel Awards have built tremendous industry standing and credibility because they recognize the best destinations and travel experiences voted by the discerning readers themselves. Keeping in mind the evolving trends in travel trade, this year we have added three more categories including Online Travel Agent, Travel App and New Business Hotel in India to the list of awards.”
The Readers’ Travel Awards were instituted by Condé Nast Traveler in the USA in 1988 and the UK edition has been conducting the awards for the past 15 years. In 2011, Condé Nast Traveller India launched its own Readers’ Travel Awards for the Indian market.
Parvez Dewan, Secretary, Tourism, Government of India, said, “Condé Nast Traveller is a benchmark to better understand the industry. Having such credible lineage, I feel that that the Condé Nast Traveller Readers’ Travel Awards have become the Oscars of the Indian travel industry.”
Five lucky participants stand to win a complimentary luxury hotel stay courtesy the Preferred Hotel Group in Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore and Cambodia. The winners will be announced in the December 2013- January 2014 issue of Condé Nast Traveller.
