Maldives Travel Awards introduced in 2012 by MATATO, has announced that it has received a record number of nominees for this year’s awards. With a total of 243 nominations, this year will see the highest number of participants and nominees competing for the prestigious awards. Which compared to last 

The association’s original purpose for the creation of the awards was to celebrate and recognize the excellence in the Maldivian hospitality sector meanwhile linking relationships between local agents and the hoteliers, while offering a platform for networking and change the way hoteliers see local agents to a more positive manner.

The awards will be conferred based on a range of 35 categories, with the 2016 edition announcing the introduction of 5 new categories. They are the Leading Airport Lounge, Leading Human Resource Management, Leading F&B Outlet, Leading Marketing Program and Leading Guesthouse Categories. Participation from 18 guesthouses nominated for the ‘’Leading Guesthouses Category’’ will see competition heat up with the local participants and rivalries in the resort categories will be as fierce as always.

For the Maldives Travel Awards 2016, MATATO has found itself a new Event Manager in ‘’Think Associates’’ through a tender process carried out earlier this year. A leading event organizer in the Maldives Think Associates has been a part of many important events in the past.

MATATO and Think Associates have plenty of hype events and enthralling promotions organized for the coming month and even has plans to carry out promotional activities at the WTM 2016 (World Travel Market) in London.

The president of MATATO Mr. Abdulla Giyaas stated in an interview with PSM news that he believes the reason for the high number of nominations this year was the hard work carried out by the association to encourage more businesses to take part in the event. And in addition to bringing new designs to the trophy, the association has announced that a Travel Conference will be held the day before the Maldives Travel Awards official ceremony. He also added that the ceremony will be held over two days in November and promised to reveal more information at a press conference next week.
