Speaking on the awards, the General Manager, Transcorp Hilton Abuja, Kevin Brett, expressed delight to once again receive the WTA in various categories.

According to him, to have won this award for six consecutive years is a testament to the fact that the hardwork and commitment the hoter team put in daily is recognized and appreciated.

“I thank our guests who through their continuous patronage and feedback have helped us retain the number one position in the Nigerian hospitality industry,” Brett said.

Also, the Managing Director, Transcorp Hotels Plc, Dupe Olusola, in her remarks, highlighted the significance of receiving such an award during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

She said, “It is such a pleasure to receive the ultimate seal of excellence in the global tourism and hospitality industry from the World Travel Awards. At a time where travellers are exploring only the best hospitality products, the significance of this recognition is truly important”.

The organiser of the award said that this year’s WTA nomination programme reported record visitor traffic and engagement from the public voters (the all-important tourism consumer) despite the incredible challenges faced by the industry over the course of 2020.

“This shows that as the global recovery begins, the appetite for tourism has never been as keen and offers hope and much needed encouragement to us all,” they said in a statement.
