ENABLE HOLIDAYS BACKS ACCESSIBLE ACCOMMODATIONS AT WORLD RESPONSIBLE TOURISM AWARDS 2015 AT WTM
Industry: Responsible       

Tourism businesses and organisations around the world are now being invited to submit themselves for consideration in the World Responsible Tourism Awards 2015 at WTM London this November.

(TRAVPR.COM) UK - April 7th, 2015 - Tourism businesses and organisations around the world are now being invited to submit themselves for consideration in the World Responsible Tourism Awards 2015 at WTM London this November.

The prestigious awards scheme, co-founded and organised by Responsible Travel, is part of World Travel Market’s World Responsible Tourism Day – the largest day of responsible tourism action in the world – which takes place on Wednesday 4 November and  celebrates the most inspiring and innovative examples of responsible tourism in practice globally.

Tourism businesses, organisations, initiatives and destinations across the industry are now being invited to submit themselves for consideration in the 2015 awards at http://www.worldresponsibletourismawards.com/submissions by Monday 6th April 2015.

For a second year, Enable Holidays is proud to be supporting accessible tourism in the Awards. This year the category focus shifts from attractions to accommodations with the ‘Best Accommodation for Disability Access’ awarding a hotel or place to stay that is accessible and enjoyable for all, welcoming travellers of all physical and mental capabilities and which can serve as an example to the wider tourism industry.

A major discussion topic at World Travel Market London last year, the accessible tourism category also produced one of the 2014 Awards Overall winners, Campo & Parque dos Sonhos, Brazil, recognised for demonstrating that truly inclusive tourism can enhance the adventure activity experiences for everyone, and enable families and friends to share their leisure and the experiences”, according to Chair of the Judging Panel Professor Harold Goodwin.

Lynne Kirby, managing director of Enable Holidays, believes the awards can play an important role in promoting accessible holidays: ‘’As one of the pioneers of accessible travel, Enable Holidays is pleased to support initiatives that are helping to open up more of the world to disabled people. By sponsoring the Best Accommodation for Disability Access category in the World Responsible Tourism Awards, we are helping to promote the need for truly barrier-free holidays and keeping this important issue at the top of the agenda.’’

 

Commenting on the Awards launched last week, Responsible Travel managing director Justin Francis says:“Our category supporters play a vital role in bringing the World Responsible Tourism Awards to the forefront of the tourism industry.

“The principles of responsible tourism can apply to any business, mainstream or niche – it’s what makes the awards so exciting.

“We want to play an active role in creating and encouraging a more caring tourism industry and the winners of these awards, big or small, will set examples the rest of the industry can and should follow.

 “I’m very excited about being able to discover and share their stories this year”.

Submissions are now being welcomed from tourism businesses, organisations, initiatives and destinations across all 12 of the awards categories.
