Vote for Madeira!
Madeira Islands, elected in 2013, 2014 and 2016 as "Europe's Leading Island Destination", are for the fourth year competing for the World Travel Awards (WTA).
Its opponents are the Canary Islands, Cyprus, the Balearic Islands, Crete, Guernsey, Jersey, Malta and Sardinia.
Votes for this first stage of the competition, where Madeira is included as European Region, are already being taken, with voting deadline set for August 6th. The island that wins the voting process in this category will move onto the next stage - the worldwide competition, the voting for which will be held in the last quarter of 2017.
The WTA awards are allocated through an online voting process, and the votes coming from tourism professionals count as two votes, whereas general public votes count as one. The voting process is simple and involves a subscription, which ensures that each person votes only once. It should be noted that in order to be accepted as a tourism professional, one must use a company email and never a personal email.
24 years in the search for excellence, awarding brands and locations that stand out in the various regions of the world, every year WTA gives out worldwide recognition awards that add value to all those who work in and are dedicated to this industry.
