Welcome President of the World Travel Awards 15th World Gala Ceremony Dear friends, It gives me a tremendous honour to welcome you to the 2008 Grand Final of the World Travel Awards, here on the paradise island of Providenciales, Turks & Caicos. Now in our 15th year, the World Travel Awards is driven by a relentless quest for excellence – seeking out those travel companies and organisations that are doing more than anyone else to further the customer experience. Our quest for travel excellence continually evolves, and this year we have hosted regional finals in seven continents, including our first ever ceremonies dedicated to South America and Australasia. We also held our inaugural Green Awards to honour leaders in sustainable tourism. Tonight sees the culmination of the competition as our regional winners go head to head to be voted the very best travel organisations in the world. We are honoured to return to Turks and Caicos to host our Grand Final 2008, as well as our Caribbean Ceremony for the

region’s finest. These idyllic islands capture the very spirit of our awards – their unique combination of overwhelming natural beauty, state-of-the-art facilities and an infectious community spirit is the envy of the tourism world. Beaches Turks & Caicos Resort & Spa, in particular, is a benchmark for our industry – it balances the demand for growth and leading-edge facilities with a vehement respect for its natural surroundings. Opening next month, the Italian Village will take holidaying in the Caribbean to a whole new level, and redefine the ultimate family holiday experience. Our industry has faced a challenging year, but it is in these economically turbulent times that the business dynamics of quality, value for money and innovation separate a good travel brand from a world-class one. The individuals and organisations gathered here tonight are living proof that winners dig deep, innovate and grow stronger when faced with adversity.

Congratulations to all those people who are receiving awards and to those that have made this evening possible. Celebrating and promoting excellence and innovation in the tourism and travel trade is the spirit of this global gala extravaganza – so please enjoy yourselves with this in mind, for we value your tremendous achievements and what you have done for our industry. Thank you all for being here with us on this very special evening.

Sincerely yours,

Graham E. Cooke President and Founder World Travel Awards

Time is life’s most precious commodity.

In time, everyone will discover the beauty of Turks & Caicos. But for now, this magnificent paradise still remains the last of the Caribbean’s unspoiled islands. The incomparable beaches. Quaint exclusive boutique properties. And the most incredible scuba diving in the world. If you’ve got the urge to take your family and loved ones on a vacation they’ll never forget, go to Turks & Caicos. Fast. Before everyone else on the planet does.

World Travel Awards Celebrating 15 Years of Excellence World Travel Awards is the most prestigious, comprehensive and sought after awards programme in the global travel and tourism industry.

Established in 1993 to acknowledge and celebrate excellence in all sectors of the industry, World Travel Awards are recognised as the hallmark of excellence, with the winners setting the benchmark to which all others aspire. The Wall Street Journal recently heralded the World Travel Awards as the "travel industry's equivalent to the Oscars". World Travel Awards is proud of its impartial nature and the comprehensive process of its voting programme. Votes are cast by an audience of 167,000 travel agents and tourism professionals from 198 participating countries. Voted for by industry peers, this level of accountability makes winning an award the greatest form of recognition in the travel business. Attended by the industry’s key decision makers and figure heads, World Travel Awards brings together all corners of the globe and all areas of travel and tourism to celebrate both individual success and the collective achievements of the industry.

The World Travel Awards attracts an unprecedented amount of both trade and consumer media coverage spearheaded by BBC World our global media partner whose coverage spans a global audience of over 274 million. In recognition of "15 Years of Excellence", World Travel Awards has expanded its portfolio by adding a Grand Tour of Regional Awards to recognise winners in their own territory. Turks & Caicos is our final stop after we visited Africa, Australasia, Asia, North America, Europe, South America and Dubai. 2009 will see another exciting Grand Tour take World Travel Awards across the globe. www.worldtravelawards.com
