If its rapidly growing popularity is any indication, I can say with confidence that our awards are all set to emerge as the most authoritative travel awards that offer unparalleled recognition to the best performers who are transforming the face of the global travel industry."

To select the World Travel Brands from India, BIG Research conducted the Brands Academy commissioned market study over a period of 12 months with more than 100 field executives who surveyed many properties across India as ‘mystery guests’. The company later on conducted the opinion surveys amongst the end consumers including but limited to business & leisure travelers, travel agencies, tour operators, suppliers, travel media and industry experts to gauge their popularity and perceptions about them and authenticate the facts gathered in the market study. The primary objectives of this study were to identify, acknowledge and offer befitting recognition to the pursuit of excellence, innovations and best practices of the winners that lead to their exemplary performance and to highlight the crucial role that their dedication to customer satisfaction plays in ensuring their long term success considering the extremely competitive and ever-evolving scenario in the travel and tourism industry.
