Ministry of Tourism’s international office in France declared best tour-ism office of 2017

The Ministry of Tourism’s international office has been voted the best tourism of-fice in France in 2017 at the prestigious ‘Victoires du Tourisme’ (Tourism Victories) Award organized by the Le Quotidien du Tourisme, a leading French travel maga-zine recently.

The ‘Victoires du Tourisme’ recognizes major contributions of business enterprises, travel agencies and tourism professionals operating in France. Readers of the Le Quotidien du Tourisme chose from different  categories (Airline, Car Rental, Cruise Company, Recreation Park, Tour Operator, Hotel Chain, Insurance Company, Inter-national Office of Tourism); and chose the partners they preferred to work with during the last twelve months on the basis of several parameters such as respon-siveness, sense of innovation and generosity, to name a few. 
Two rounds of votes were held before the final results were announced. The first round was held on the 19th of April where three finalists were selected in each category, the second round was conducted on the 5th of May. Witnessing stiff competition in the first round, Oman was one among three finalists, along with Spain and South Africa.
Following the second round of voting, the winners were awarded their trophies at a gala dinner at the Intercontinental Paris Le Grand hotel, in the presence of prominent tourism industry professionals and under the patronage of the Under-secretary for Foreign Trade, Tourism Promotion and Foreign Affairs. 
“The International Tourism Promotion team is delighted to have won the prestig-ious ‘Victoires du Tourisme’ award and the confidence of all those who voted for us”, said Salim Adi Al Mamari, Director General of Tourism Promotion at the Minis-try of Tourism. “The award is testimony to the dedication of our dynamic, respon-sive, and passionate team in France, and further reinstates the importance of hav-ing an exclusive Oman office for tourism in international markets.”    
Rania Khodr, Director of the Oman Tourism Office in France said, “The Oman Tour-ism France team and I are very thankful and grateful for the continuous support of the Ministry of Tourism, the Embassy of Oman and all our other partners through the years. It is worth mentioning that French nationals reached 41,400 mark in the last year.”
