V&A Waterfront Lauded at Tourism for Tomorrow Destination Awards

The V&A Waterfront has been counted among the best in the world by the World Travel and Tourism Council at the Tourism for Tomorrow Destination Awards, which were held at the 16th WTTC Global Summit in Dallas, Texas on 7 April 2016.

Sixty-two countries from around the globe applied for the prestigious award, presenting their unique destinations to be judged on criteria of community development, preservation of cultural and natural heritage and innovative solutions for sustainable practices.  Ultimately, the winner was Parkstad Limburg in the Netherlands, with the Swiss Park Network in Switzerland coming second, while our very own V&A Waterfront came third.
