The EXCELENCIAS AWARDS were founded in 2005 by the “Excelencias Group” media group, in a bid to foster excellence in different fields, all of them related to tourism and culture. Since then, they have turned out to be a benchmark for those involved in this major industry who conduct they daily job with the purpose of achieving the goal of being excellent.
Besides the EXCELENCIAS TURISTICAS AWARDS, the list includes the EXCELENCIAS GOURMET AWARDS and “Silvia Zorzanello Award”, as a tribute to the work of a lifetime carried out in Brazil by Silvia Zorzanello, “Ramon Alvarez Award”, which honors people’s achievements and contributions to the travel industry, and it’s given to an institution or personality committed to the MICE sector; as well as the “Nicolas Muela Award” to be handed to projects focused on the research and promotion of gastronomic culture in Iberian America.
