A ballot is a device used to cast votes in an election and may be found as a piece of paper or a small ball used in secret voting. It was originally a small ball used to record decisions made by voters in Italy around the 16th century. Each voter uses one ballot, and ballots are not shared.
Welcome to our Annual Awards of Excellence. These are Luxury Travel Advisor’s “readers’ choice awards,” where suppliers and top executives are honoured for their superb performances throughout the year.
An award, sometimes called a distinction, is something given to a recipient as a token of recognition of excellence in a certain field. When the token is a medal, ribbon or other item designed for wearing, it is known as a decoration.
The nominees you’ll see by clicking on the link below have been selected by our advisory board; these are the luxury travel advisors who have graced the covers of our magazine over the past 13 years. As we add new cover profiles, the advisory board grows, creating a diverse array of opinion from year to year.
Next steps? The ballot now goes out to our general readership to cast the final vote for who deserves top honours for the best in luxury travel. Please do voice your opinion, for as you know, every vote makes a difference. Voting ends Friday, March 29, 2019.
The winners will be announced at the 2019 ULTRA Summit, which will take place May 21-23 at Reunion, A Salamander Resort in Kissimmee, Florida.
