The World Travel Awards (WTA), established in 1983, is regarded globally as the highest accolade in the travel industry and have been called the "travel industry’s equivalent of the Oscars" by the Wall Street Journal. Consumers and over 200,000 travel industry professionals cast their votes online to select the winners. WTA’s media partners include CNBC, Newsweek, and The New York Times.
