Jordan to host World Travel Awards’ first ceremony

Middle East Gala Ceremony 2022, to be hosted by World Travel Awards (WTA), will be set at The Ritz-Carlton, Amman. On the 18th of September 2022, the red-carpet gala reception in the capital of Jordan will be graced by the leading travel industry figureheads and decision-makers from across the region.


The Ritz-Carlton, Amman is an exquisite new addition to the city’s ever-expanding skyline, raising the luxury hospitality bar in Jordan. Located in the prestigious 5th Circle, the hotel provides a unique destination for both leisure and business travellers, as well as serving as a convenient gateway to explore Jordan’s historic sites of Petra, Wadi Rum and the Dead Sea.


Per Graham Cooke, Founder, WTA, they are honoured to host their Middle East Gala Ceremony 2022 at The Ritz-Carlton, Amman, for what will mark their first ceremony in Jordan, a nation blessed with World Heritage Sites, friendly towns and inspiring desert landscapes.


He also added that WTA has maintained its position as the industry leader for the past 29 years, consistently proving its value as the global benchmark for recognising excellence in travel and tourism. According to him, he’s looking forward to joining the most senior travel industry figures from across the Middle East for what promises to be a fabulous evening, acknowledging those organisations leading the industry’s recovery.


On the other hand, the General Manager of The Ritz-Carlton, Amman, Tareq Derbas, said that they are delighted to welcome attendees of this year’s World Travel Awards, a milestone not only for their hotel – which officially opened its doors in May – but for Jordan as a whole. He adds that it is their great pleasure to welcome some of the world’s foremost travel industry leaders, and that they look forward to showing them a level of hospitality and care that is both a hallmark of the Ritz-Carlton brand and a true reflection of the Kingdom and its people.
