Russians ready to travel, voting on destinations
"The inaugural My Planet Travel Awards continue to surpasses all expectations, as international hotels, resorts, and service providers sign up to be part of Russia's unique travel awards" says eturbonews.com.
Following a huge nationwide awareness campaign covered by the All-Russian State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company (VGTRK) and a public online vote, the awards will culminate with a gala dinner in September 2011 at The Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Moscow where the winners will be announced.
Guests at the gala dinner will include up to 400 people from Russia and around the world, including nominees and other representatives of the travel industry, celebrities, journalists, relevant government agencies and trade associations.
Yesterday it was announced that Hong Kong is the latest and 100th nominee to join the My Planet Travel Awards 2011 and will be represented in the category Best Hotel in Asia, Australasia and the Indian Ocean.
