The Tiqets Remarkable Venue Awards were established in 2017 to recognise and celebrate the best attractions and museums in the most-visited cities around the world. The first Tiqets Remarkable Venue Awards was hosted in Paris in 2017. The 2021 awards honors winners in seven award categories and six markets: the UK & Ireland, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and the United States. Previous award winners have included Sagrada Familia, Musée d’Orsay, and the Van Gogh Museum.
This year’s global awards evening will be free to attend with both an in-person ceremony and a global livestream to attend virtually. Anyone in the travel industry is invited to register. Presented in partnership with Tourism Innovation Summit (TIS), the awards will take place during the conference in Seville on Wednesday, November 10th from 17:30-20:30 CET.
Applications are now open to win an award, and museums and attractions are invited to apply for the following categories.
- Most Innovative recognizes the museums and attractions that are pushing the industry forward through creative marketing strategies, new technology, sustainability initiatives, or other means.
- Best Hidden Gem recognizes the unique or niche attractions that may be off the beaten path but always stun their visitors. Any venue that provides an exceptional, one-of-a-kind experience to its audience is encouraged to apply.
The winners of these application-based awards will be chosen by a panel of expert judges in each participating region, including representatives for organisations such as National Geographic, ENIT, Visit Scotland, MuseumNext, and our global judge Douglas Quinby from Arival. There will be a winner for each award in each of the six markets (France, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, the UK, and the US) being recognized.
Applications close on September 30, 2021.
