The winners were awarded last week at a gala awards dinner at the Plaza Hotel in New York.
Now in its 10th year, the Readers Choice Awards, identfies the travel industry’s finest, according to Arnie Weissmann, Travel Weekly’s editor in chief.
“The professionals who read and rely on Travel Weekly have the expertise to select those businesses, destinations and hotels that provide a higher level of service to their clients. Our readers can be confident that these winners represent the best this industry has to offer,” Wiessman stated.
Winners were selected in 59 categories in the airline, car, hospitality, rail, GDS, agent education, tour, cruise, destination and theme park sectors.
The awards are presented to suppliers considered by Travel Weekly readers to have excelled in product and service during the past year.
In the first round of voting, Travel Weekly readers were invited to write in the names of any company they believed best exemplified a particular category. Leading vote recipients were identified as finalists, and voting on finalists took place this fall.
