Both events will take place on the evening of September 4th at the world-class resort, welcoming hundreds of hospitality leaders from across the region and around the world.
The decision to combine World Travel Awards Europe Gala Ceremony and World Spa Awards Gala Ceremony will give nominees and delegates a heightened exposure on the night as well as increasing the networking opportunities on offer.
