Tiqets names winners of its annual Remarkable Venue Awards
Tiqets announced the winners of its 5th annual Remarkable Venue Awards (RVAs), which celebrate the best museums and attractions around the world in six international markets. The winners were announced at the Remarkable Venue Awards Ceremony at the Tourism Innovation Summit (TIS) in Seville. This year’s U.S. winners span across seven major cities and include the new National Museum of African American Music in Nashville, the iconic Empire State Building Observatory in New York, and the recently debuted Las Vegas Raiders Allegiant Stadium among others.
Tiqets’ annual awards celebrate museums and attractions that received the highest remarks based on more than 850,000 customer reviews on Tiqets.com for a number of categories including Best Museum, Best Attraction, Best Onsite Experience, Best Landmark and Most Remarkable Venue. Two additional application-based categories were added this year including Best Hidden Gem and Most Innovative Venue, which were selected by a panel of more than 20 tourism experts from across the globe.
“This year, the Remarkable Venue Awards celebrate the venues that didn’t just survive 2021 – they thrived,” said Laurens Leurink, CEO for Tiqets. “Each of the nominated museums and attractions received rave reviews from thousands of Tiqets customers in 2021, despite a difficult travel year caused by the pandemic. The winning venues represent the best of the best reviews overall and are a true testament to their outstanding guest offerings and customer service.”
