Both events will take place on the evening of September 4th at the world-class resort, welcoming hundreds of hospitality leaders from across the region and around the world.
The decision to combine World Travel Awards Europe Gala Ceremony and World Spa Awards Gala Ceremony will give nominees and delegates a heightened exposure on the night as well as increasing the networking opportunities on offer.
The event will be a showcase of both the best of European hospitality and the global spa and wellness industry.
World Travel Awards President Graham Cooke said: “Having taken the decision to combine both the World Travel Awards Europe Gala Ceremony and World Spa Awards Gala Ceremony it is a pleasure to confirm they will both take place early next month at Forte Village Resort.
“We are currently putting plans in place for the event and I look forward to welcoming out delegates from across Europe and the wider world to the dual Gala Ceremony.” Forte Village Resort is the perfect host for the dual-event.
The world renowned location stands in a unique 47 hectares tropical park setting on the beautiful south coast of Sardinia, approximately 40 kilometres from Cagliari airport.
The resort is a world of its own, with a wide choice of four and five star hotels, beachfront suites and villas, restaurants, pools, sports activities, children's clubs and entertainment, on a magnificent beach where guests can be as active or relaxed as they wish.
