We’re into 2020 now, with so many of the best and most exciting awards evenings on the horizon. Naturally, the gargantuan Hollywood and high-end fashion awards evenings top the overall yearly billing of luxurious occasions, but there are plenty of others across the world’s industries that offer glamour, excitement, and extravagance.
Over the last few years, several grand annual awards evenings have become can’t-miss events for the luxury-seeking traveler. Whether you’re interested in the industry’s inner workings or not, you’ll want to keep an eye out for the 2020 renditions of these awards nights.
World Spa & Wellness Awards
On March 29, 2020, in London, the World Spa & Wellness Awards return to acknowledge the excellence of care, service, and standards provided by spa and wellness institutes from all around the world. The awards aim to continually raise global industry standards, with the awards standing as one of the leading honors in spa and wellness.
Early last year, at the 2019 World Spa & Wellness Awards, the award for the World’s Best Eco Spa 2019 went to the Quito-based wellness spa Joyas de Ecuador. The award-winners only use products from their native Ecuador, maintain their nation’s traditions, but adhere to modern standards of being an eco spa.
International Travel & Tourism Awards
Taking place in early November last year, and likely a similar window in 2020, the International Travel & Tourism Awards is the most prestigious evening in the industry. The awards are classed as the highest accolades achievable in travel and tourism, with the event itself often being a rather lavish occasion.
Of course, the award that’s among the highest of the high is that of the Best in Luxury Award. Companies that land this award are, naturally, coveted by high-end customers looking to travel around the world. In 2018, it was the work done by the Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority and Hills Balfour to promote the Taylor Morris & Mauritius Luxury campaign, helping cement aspirations of traveling to Mauritius.
The SBC Awards
The SBC Awards are one of the major dates on the calendar for gambling operators. Specializing in giving accolades to operators, suppliers, platform providers, and affiliates of sports betting, the annual event takes place in December – making for a grand occasion to pile in for an extravagant Christmas party. The SBC Awards are the biggest in the sector, and the annual event matches this sentiment with its grand spread.
One of the most notorious winners at the SBC Awards is Mr Green, with the sports betting and casino gaming platform adding the 2018 Rising Star in Sports Betting Award to its 2017 Socially Responsible Bookmaker of the Year Award. The prestige of the SBC Awards certainly had other awards outlets taking notice, with the platform sweeping a hat-trick of awards at the EGR Nordics Awards in 2019.
If you want to experience an exciting and lavish evening of celebration this year, make your way over to the 2020 venues of these three major industry awards nights.
