To host the World Travel Awards (WTA) Europe Gala Ceremony 2022 on October 1, Mallorca is completing final preparations.

The red-carpet gala celebration at the Hilton Mallorca Galatzo is being attended by the top figures in the tourism sector from around the continent. In the Balearic Islands, this evening will be the first-ever WTA opening ceremony.

The 208-room Hilton Mallorca Galatzo is the most recent addition to Hilton’s expanding list of hotels in Spain. The resort offers three swimming pools, two pool bars, a range of dining options, a 1,500sqm spa, and wellness center, and 50,000 sq m of grounds with spectacular Balearic views.

As the first ceremony to be conducted in the magnificent Balearic Islands, the WTA’s creator, Graham Cooke, adds, “We are honored to stage our Europe Gala Ceremony at the stunning Hilton Mallorca Galatzo.

“For the past 29 years, the WTA has consistently shown its relevance as the global benchmark for recognizing excellence in travel and tourism,” he continues. I’m thrilled that so many prominent business leaders will be in attendance for what looks to be a fantastic evening honoring the organizations driving Europe’s tourism rebound.

The Hilton Mallorca Galatzo is well located for accessing several of the island’s top attractions, including the Paguera beaches. Additionally, world-class golf courses like Santa Ponsa and T Golf, Palma, Mallorca’s capital city, and Palma de Mallorca Airport are all close by.

“We are thrilled to welcome the World Travel Awards Europe Gala Ceremony to Mallorca,” says Joachim Hartl, Area General Manager of the Iberian Peninsula. Hilton is returning to the island with a stunning resort, displaying Hilton Hospitality and the true Hilton Wow Effect inside our Making Moments Program.

The opulent hilltop Hilton Mallorca Galatzo offers 208 modern rooms and suites, all with individual balconies, on the shore of one of Spain’s most prestigious island vacation spots. With traditional island architecture and culinary establishments serving a variety of regional specialties, visitors will experience a sensory-enriching adventure.
