Tourism Star Award

For the first time World Tourism Forum Lucerne is launching a global search to spot, shine a light and celebrate the most committed, inspiring, passionate and enthusiastic person working in the travel, tourism and hospitality industry. The Tourism Star will be one who against all odds pursued and ensured an authentic and life-enriching journey in the travel, tourism or hospitality industry. With the Tourism Star Award, we honour a passionate person whose committment and enthusiasm has a positive impact on the tourism industry. 

The Tourism Star Award is a collaboration between United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) and World Tourism Forum Lucerne to inspire lasting impact and profile tourism as a force for good.
