The Awards, established in 2003, are the flagship awards for the global tourism sector. They recognize knowledge creation, dissemination and innovative solutions that advance the sector in line with the principles of the UNWTO Global Code of Ethics and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The winners of the 13th UNWTO Awards will be unveiled on 18 January 2017 in a gala dinner held in collaboration with the International Tourism Trade Fair (IFEMA/FITUR) in Madrid, Spain. Last year, the ceremony hosted 320 high-level participants from more than 50 countries, including 80 ministers, ambassadors and CEOs.
