Press Room > 2013

The most acclaimed travel awards in the region are back. The MTAA is aimed at instilling a greater sense of pride and achievement among professionals and organisations in the tourism and hospitality industry of the five countries, and recognition for their quality of excellence.

Organised by the Tourism Ministries of the five countries, the MTAA has received admiration internationally. It is one of the highlights of the largest travel event in the Mekong, the ITE HCMC.

All entries will be reviewed by an independent panel of international judges nominated by the five country Tourism Ministries. The awards night will be held in conjunction with ITE HCMC Grand Opening Ceremony and Gala Dinner, to be held on September 11 at the White Palace Convention Centre in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

Companies registered in the five countries, who are keen in the awards, can submit their entries online. Submission of entry is free of charge, and more than one category can be applied. Details for the criteria of judging are available online, and all registrations, are reviewed by a panel of international judges. Awards’ winners will be announced and awarded by the Tourism Ministers.
