Travel Awards (2023)
About the Travel Awards
New World Report is excited to announce our first ever NWR Travel Awards for 2022! Focusing on those at the forefront of the travel, tourism, and leisure industry, we seek to shine a light on those who have shown true excellence in commitment, determination, and customer service over the past 12 months across the Americas.
According to Forbes, the Americas boast more than 20% of the world’s best travel destinations, with places like New Orleans, New York, Vancouver, Barbados, Buenos Aires, Brazil, Havana and more making the list. For this reason, we here at New World Report believe celebrating the businesses and individuals working tirelessly within this industry is very much overdue.
The US alone boasts over 79.6 million international visitors annually and with the easing of travel restrictions, this number is expected to rise in 2022 as tourists plan their next vacation. We at New World Report aim to shine a light on those who accommodate tourists, those who make the traveling process run smoothly, and those who create an enjoyable experience for tourists of North, Central, and South America from across the globe.
At New World Report we recognize now is the most crucial time to take part in our NWR Travel Awards 2022. The awards program will highlight businesses who have kept positive through all challenges, changed company dynamics for the better and have even bigger goals for 2022.
Notifying stakeholders of your participation in our program indicates that your business is garnering the attention of third parties, and that word of your expertise and customer service is creating a buzz with competitors.
As always, our program is open to all businesses in the travel industry from all over North, Central and South America, regardless of company age and size. Like all awards with New World Report, the NWR Travel Awards 2022 are based on merit alone, rather than the number of votes received. The process works to ensure that we reward businesses based on their excellence in the industry, the commitment to their guests and their dedication to services.
Therefore, if you are a business operating in the Americas, or you know of a business or individual that you feel is worthy of acknowledgment within the NWR Travel Awards 2022, then please complete the voting form by clicking ‘nominate’ at the top of the page. If you would like further information on how you can get involved, or our awards process, then please get in touch with the awards team at [email protected].
1. Researching of all nominees
The team here at New World Report work intensely to identify true market leaders, innovators and enterprising start-ups and existing businesses, driving many of the nominations ourselves.
We encourage external nominations via the nomination or voting form which is held on our website. We invite our subscribers, website users, social media followers and our wider circulation to submit nominations via the online form.
Nominating parties are open to put forward either third-party businesses whom they hold in high regard, or their own organisation or sub-division of their business if they see fit.
2. Creating our shortlist
All nominees will be contacted directly and are formally requested to accept their nomination before we proceed further. Should any firm or individual rather decline at this point, they are of course welcome to do so and will be taken out of the running.
Those who formally accept are given the opportunity to submit additional materials in support of their nomination. Such additional items could be evidence of client feedback, client case studies, detail of any major projects etc. Although there is no obligation to supply such details, we have found that many nominees value this stage, in the process, as much as our research team do.
3. Judging and evaluating our nominees
Our dedicated research team will assess all information presented to them.
The team gather information independently from a variety of publicly accessible sources, which are assessed alongside any material supplied by a nominating party or the nominee themselves.
The research team casts their final judgement, based on various criteria including but not limited to client dedication, innovation, business growth, longevity, online reputation, customer feedback and business performance.
4. The lucky winners
Once winners are determined, they will be personally notified by our team before any public announcement is made, allowing time for any communications throughout the wider business and the coordination of marketing strategies. In most cases winners will be notified initially by email so don’t forget to keep a close eye on those inboxes!
Unfortunately, not everyone can be a winner; however, whether you have been selected as a winner or not all nominees are encouraged to come back next year.
Once the press embargo is lifted, details of New World Report award winners will be made public via the website, award winners’ magazine and newsletter.
5. Maximise your business award success
We are able to offer a range of promotional packages and promotional items to New World Report award winners, these vary from inclusion in the free-of-charge winners’ directory, to trophies, content in winners’ special edition magazine and on our website.
We encourage all winners to publicly announce their win independently. Announcements via company websites, social media, via publicly released press releases, and through local and national press are all great ways of maximising the exposure which can be gained from such an amazing achievement. If you have need of further advice on how to gain maximum exposure from your win, please feel free to get in touch. We are more than happy to assist our clients with their needs.
The Nomination Team can assist with answering any queries that you have regarding a nomination, or the process involved in taking part in one of our award programmes.
Please get in touch with us via email or over the phone if you have any questions - we are happy to help!
