The Regional Secretary for Tourism and Culture and President of the Madeira Promotion Association considers it “a remarkable achievement” for Madeira to win the ‘Best Island Destination in the World’ award for the sixth consecutive year.
Eduardo Jesus stresses that the prize “should make all those who work in tourism in this proud destination, as well as the residents who see their land being continually valued internationally, and also the thousands of tourists who visit us, who thus value even more the vacation destination ”.
Furthermore, he says that “if we add to this award, what we received earlier this month, when we were awarded, once again, as ‘Best Island Destination in Europe’, we have reason to be satisfied, even more so in this atypical year that it paralyzed the world and we knew how to preserve Madeira, redoubling the qualification of safe destination ”.
The ‘World Travel Awards’, created in 1993, and awarded annually to recognize, reward and celebrate excellence in all key sectors of the travel, tourism and hospitality industries. They are one of the main awards in the different sectors that appear on restricted lists and are awarded after online voting by the public and tourism professionals.
