NTOs and DMOs with the most innovative and exciting digital strategies will be awarded in January for their work in different aspects of the field, as judged by our panel of experts. Award winners will receive not only a Best in Class badge to include on the individual winners’ websites, but will be exclusively interviewed by the DTTT team and featured as the best of the best in digital marketing on the thinkdigital.travel portal. The judges are making their decision this week and will identify the best of the best in digital and identify the winners of this year’s #DTTTawards (DTTT Awards).
This year’s #DTTTawards consist of 6 different categories looking at the best in class in different areas within digital. After the Digital Tourism Innovation Campus in Barcelona in November, more and more destinations have submitted entries for the different categories of our awards. These categories are: Branding and Design, Social Media, Creative Campaigns, Web Design, Mobile and Content.
We are very pleased to have our well-known judges on board that have the very important and exciting task to select the winners from the range of submissions that we have received. Many destinations are already very excited about the awards and their chance of winning our #DTTTaward to be recognised as best in class in digital in different categories. The judges are our DTTT experts, that have helped us over the last year with their expertise both on the portal but also in many of our events. The Think Tank team is therefore very proud to have selected judges with years and years of experience in the industry and well established in their field of expertise.
