Voting for the World Travel Awards closes on 24 October and Cape Town is once again up for a host of awards, including the World’s Leading Festival & Event Destination 2021, a title it currently holds. To make sure that the City of Cape Town retains this prestigious accolade – which helps boost the local tourism sector’s recovery – Mayor Dan Plato has called on Capetonians to vote for the Mother City.

“I’m calling on all our residents to vote for Cape Town in the various categories as receiving these awards would be a significant accolade and will help boost our tourism and hospitality sector. With increased vaccinations and the easing of the national lockdown, Cape Town is well-positioned to see a substantial recovery during the coming Summer season,” said the Executive Mayor.

“The tourism sector is a key pillar of the local economy and we can help Cape Town remain front of mind for local and international visitors by winning these awards. It will reaffirm the appeal of Cape Town as a popular tourism destination and greatly assist in bringing back visitors. It’s time to vote for Cape Town.”
