Applications for the Best Hidden Gem and Most Innovative Venue awards are open from today until September 30.
This is the first time Tiqets will be partnering with TIS to host the Remarkable Venue Awards ceremony, which has been hosted in six markets annually since 2017. Those who attend the 2021 Remarkable Venue Awards in person will also receive a complimentary 3-day Gold Pass, valued at over €500, to the 2021 Tourism Innovation Summit. Those who can't make it to Seville can tune in to the free livestream of the event.
2021 has been a year of rebirth for the tourism industry. In the wake of the pandemic, museums and attractions have come up with new, exciting and – most importantly – safe ways to engage with visitors. In partnership with TIS, we’re hosting our annual event to celebrate the end of a year of recovery and welcome the shift to a year of breaking records. It’s a privilege to celebrate all these venues have accomplished at the end of a long, but hopeful, year with the Remarkable Venue Awards ceremony.Luuc Elzinga, Tiqets President & Co-founder
Anyone in the travel industry is invited to register for the free awards ceremony, which will take place during the Tourism Innovation Summit in Seville on Wednesday, November 10 from 17:30-20:30 CET. The event will also be livestreamed across the globe so anyone can attend virtually.
After many months of struggles and difficulties for the tourism industry and its businesses, we have to take also time to recognize the ones that are leading and innovating nowadays. This is why it is a pleasure for us to host Tiqets Remarkable Venue Awards to recognize museums and attractions that are disrupting and changing models in these unprecedented times. Once again, at TIS – Tourism Innovation Summit 2021, we will gather tourism leaders from all around the world to set the roadmap of the upcoming years and define the new ways of travel.Silvia Avilés, Director of TIS2021
