The World Travel Awards (WTA) has announced it will host its 2011 Grand Final Gala Ceremony in Doha, Qatar on 11th December 2011. The ceremony will be staged at W Doha Hotel & Residences.

The evening marks the culmination of a year-long search for the best travel and tourism brands in the world, and will feature the winners from WTA’s regional heats competing head to head.

WTA’s 2011 regional heats included the Middle East Ceremony (Dubai, UAE), Europe Ceremony (Antalya, Turkey), Africa & Indian Ocean Ceremony (Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt), Asia & Australasia (Bangkok, Thailand), and Caribbean & The Americas (Montego Bay, Jamaica).

Graham E. Cooke, President & Founder, World Travel Awards said: “We are delighted to host our 2011 Grand Final Gala Ceremony in Qatar as it is such an exciting place to be right now. The country is investing $25 billion in tourism infrastructure in the build up to the 2022 Fifa World Cup, giving rise to incredible opportunities within the luxury sector.”

“Our Grand Final will see the winners of our five regional heats, who represent the cream of the global travel and tourism industry, compete head to head for the ultimate travel accolade.”
