Geneva Takes Home 2nd Tourism Oscar

For the second year in succession, Geneva has been named “Europe’s Leading City Break Destination” at the World Travel Awards 2015 ceremony that took place at Forte Village in Sardinia on September5.
This distinction, as prestigious for tourism as an Oscar is for cinema, consolidates its status as an ideal destination for a weekend break, PR Newswire reported.
In the face of stiff competition from Paris, London, Rome, Istanbul, Madrid, Lisbon, Venice and Dublin, as well as new nominees Porto and Lodz, Geneva becomes part of the new trend of “city break” trips, i.e. short weekend breaks.
The many players in the tourism industry present at the ceremony acknowledged not only its touristic assets and appeal, but also the high quality services in terms of accommodation and experiences that Geneva offers its visitors as a destination. It should be noted that thousands of participants took part in the online vote that awarded Geneva this highly coveted distinction.
“Geneva is a lively destination, full of surprises, which is worth exploring during a business trip as well as over a weekend,” commented Philippe Vignon, director of Geneva Tourism, on being awarded this major accolade.
“This prize endorses our strategy of developing touristic products with high added value, such as the creation of various packages aimed especially at short-stay visitors,” said Vincent Dubi, marketing director.
The attention paid toward visitor satisfaction has enabled Geneva to stand out as a destination from other cities and win Europe’s Leading City Break Destination award for the second consecutive year.
