The aim of the event
Promoting High-Level Tourism and Preserving Heritage
The Swiss Tourism Awards were developed thanks to great success of the Swiss International Holiday Exhibition of Lugano. This event, overseen and organized by a highly competent team of tourism experts, has experienced natural growth year after year, showcasing a diverse array of destinations.
The concept of officially selecting and inviting international destinations and cities stems from our commitment to meeting the requests of our visitors, who consistently seek high-quality holidays and new locations with rich artistic and cultural heritage.
The Swiss Tourism Awards Committee meticulously selects destinations and international resorts based on their unique characteristics, extending invitations to them in Lugano with an all-inclusive promotional package aimed at developing their incoming tourism.
The Selection Committee aims to highlight the distinctive features of destinations that are strongly oriented towards tourism. These awards offer recipients the opportunity to showcase their uniqueness to the Swiss tourism market, presenting and promoting themselves within this affluent user base.
Furthermore, the event introduces the vast audience of the Swiss International Holiday Exhibition to renowned destinations, abundant in history, art, culture, and natural beauty.
