MMPRC Announces Public Voting Event to Support the Maldives’ Nominations for WTA’s Indian Ocean Category

The Maldives is once again in contention for 9 prestigious World Travel Awards (WTA) in the Indian Ocean category. To garner public support and showcase the unparalleled beauty of the Maldives, Maldives Marketing and Public Relations Corporation (MMPRC/Visit Maldives) is hosting a special Voting Event at Velaanaage ground floor on 28th March 2024, from 9:15 AM to 1:15 PM.

The World Travel Awards, established in 1993, is recognised as the highest accolade in the travel and tourism industry. Their annual awards program celebrates excellence across various sectors, with regional ceremonies culminating in a Grand Final. Winning a WTA signifies global recognition and sets a benchmark for hospitality standards.


Throughout the years, the Maldives has consistently impressed voters and travel experts alike, having previously secured many of the most coveted Indian Ocean category titles such as Leading Destination, Leading Beach Destination, and Leading Tourist Board for many years prior. MMPRC is aiming to reclaim its position at the forefront of Indian Ocean tourism again this year. This also comes on the heels of the Maldives being declared WTA’s World’s Leading Destination for the past four years in a row and MMPRC claiming the title of World’s Leading Tourist Board for two consecutive years.

The Voting Event at Velaanaage ground floor presents an exciting opportunity for the Maldivian community and travel enthusiasts to actively participate in this prestigious award. By casting their votes, attendees will be not only supporting the Maldives but also entering a raffle draw with an enticing free stay sponsored by ITAW Travels, courtesy of the National Guesthouses Association of the Maldives. MMPRC extends a warm invitation to the public to join this momentous event and contribute to the nation’s success at the World Travel Awards.
