The winners of the eleventh edition of the Creative Tourism Awards have just been revealed!
Created by the Creative Tourism Network®, the Creative Tourism Awards aim to distinguish companies, projects, and destinations around the world that promote creative tourism, a new generation of tourism, characterized by the active participation of tourists in artistic and creative.
The members of the international jury had the difficult task of selecting the winners in different ways, from 192 applications, all demonstrating a high level of creativity, authenticity, and sustainability.
The “World Best Creative Travel Agency ” award was awarded to Focus on Women. An innovative and quality project that offers creative and human experiences traveling with women experts in the destination who offer a bridge with its culture, its history, and its inhabitants. Traveling with Focus On Women means meeting local women who help us discover the country from a female perspective and invite us to live a process of co-creation with the local population.
For Alice Fauveau, founder and CEO of Focus on Women, “the goal is to offer personalized attention and an enriching experience through meetings with inspiring women. All with values focused on sustainability and gender equality.”
In addition to originality and excellence, the jury highlighted the positive impact of Focus on Women in terms of sustainability and, more particularly, the fact that luxury tourism can be sustainable.
Caroline Couret, Director of Creative Tourism Network® added: “This model not only benefits local communities in terms of economic impact, but also helps foster new types of relationships that turn tourists into travelers, and all of us into world citizens! Focus on Women (re)places human values at the center of travel and is therefore a model of sustainable development.”
