Online Voting for the Welcome to Georgia! National Tourism Award Soon to Close

The online voting process of Welcome to Georgia, the National Tourism Award, ends this Friday, November 13, at 00:00. To be able to support your favorite participant, you need to visit the project website, select your preferred nominee, and vote.

Audience support will help participants accumulate points, which will eventually be reflected in a high score. Winners will be identified based on the online voting process, and the summary of the jury board evaluation, in a 40/60 percentage ratio. In 2020, the project has 16 jury members who will evaluate specific nominations based on their competence; leading specialists in the field with many years of experience. The members of the jury board in 2020 are: Maia Sidamonidze, Tamara Archuadze, Andria Basilaia, Dali Tsatava, Medea Janiashvili, Maia Tsereteli, Nika Manjgaladze, Ilia Okromelidze, Shalva Khetsuriani, Alexander Onoprishvili, Ia Tabagari, Valerian Mchedlidze, Ako Akhalaia, Giorgi Chogovadze, and Natalia Bakhtadze Engländer.

“Perhaps the audience is surprised about the tourism and hospitality industry being awarded when its representatives are in an extreme crisis. Exactly for that reason!" said Marina Chayka, the founder of Welcome to Georgia! National Tourism Awards. “I wholeheartedly believe that I should not stop at this time, and this year's award will be a source of motivation and enthusiasm to embrace new forces, ideas, and strategies in 2021. Motivating the industry has never been more important than it is this year.”

The project is supported by the Ministry of Economy and Sustainable Development of Georgia, Georgian National Tourism Administration, Tbilisi City Hall, Agency of Protected Areas, BDO Georgia, Aldagi, Hotel Contract Georgia, PKF, Domson’s Engineering, Julius Meinl, Zigie, Design City, Art Concept.
