Be responsible, be a winner!
What’s the point of good work if it goes unnoticed? If no one learns from it? And so it is with great pride—and hope—that Outlook Traveller announces the first ever Indian Responsible Tourism Awards 2016 (IRTA) to identify and applaud hotels, homestays, tours operators, and other holiday providers, who are working very hard to make all travel conscious travel in this country.
IRTA is a regional partner of the reputed World Responsible Tourism Awards (WRTA) held at the World Travel Market (WTM) in London every year. Founded in 2004 by responsibletravel.com, WRTA has established itself as the most widely respected global touchstone of responsible tourism. Known for its formidable line-up of judges, and a thorough and transparent judging process, WRTA has brought worldwide recognition to over 375 holiday providers so far. It has chapters in Ireland, Africa, and now, in India.
In keeping with the WRTA standards, the judging process for IRTA will be both intensive and rigorous, spearheaded by a jury of industry experts, including international responsible tourism pundit Professor Harold Goodwin. Winners will also automatically qualify to compete for the WRTA in London—on an international platform at the WTM.
