TEN destinations from as far flung as California to Vietnam, have been nominated for this year’s New Frontiers Award.
Now in its third year, the award consists of $10,000 worth of complimentary exhibition space at Arabian Travel Market 2009, which will be given to the destination that has made an outstanding contribution to tourism development in the face of overwhelming adversity.
Reed Travel Exhibitions, organiser of ATM, said that these destinations were chosen taking into account a number of factors such as their utilisation of aid packages, support from local and national government, tangible efforts of recovery and the determination of the country as a whole.
California, Peru, Greece, Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Nicaragua, China, Mozambique and Vietnam are all making tremendous strides after suffering from either man made or natural disasters.
Tom Nutley of Reed Travel Exhibitions said, “The concept for the award was borne out of the remarkable achievements that have been observed over the last three years. In recognition of those extraordinary efforts in the face of such adversity, we wanted to salute their exceptional achievements.”
