Voting has closed ahead of the World Ski Awards 2015, with final preparations for the annual Gala Ceremony now underway.
A record number of ballots were cast by leading ski tourism professionals ahead of the event, alongside the votes of hundreds of thousands of ski consumers from around the world.
The formal presentations to World Ski Awards winners will take place over the weekend of November 20th-22nd in the legendary ski resort of Kitzbühel.
Guests at the event will be invited to engage in a three day programme of exclusive networking events and dinners, private skiing on the slopes of the world famous Hahnenkamm, sight-seeing tours and a host of other networking activities.
The highlight of the weekend will of course be the glittering red carpet World Ski Awards Gala Ceremony itself on the evening of Saturday, November 21st, when the winners will be officially announced.
World Ski Awards Managing Director Sion Rapson said: “We have been overwhelmed by the response World Ski Awards has received this year, with more votes cast than ever before.“
Going into our third Gala Ceremony it is obvious World Ski Awards has caught the imagination of the global ski tourism community and I look forward to welcoming its leaders to Kitzbühel in just a few short weeks.”
Tickets for the Gala Ceremony are in high demand.
Guests wishing to confirm attendance are invited to email Managing Director Sion Rapson.
For bookings on or before the October 30th representatives of World Ski Awards nominees will be invited to attend entirely free of charge, with access to the full three day programme.
