KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA, 23 October 2015 – GOASEAN.com won another two awards for being the Best Asia Pacific Destination Website and silver for the Best Tourism Website by TravelMole Asia Pacific Web Awards 2015 and Davey Awards 2015 respectively. These recent wins accord GOASEAN a total of five awards won by the travel channel just seven months after the portal’s launch in Kuala Lumpur.
The TravelMole Asia Pacific Web Award winners were announced yesterday at the biggest Asian travel trade show, ITB Asia. The award recognises excellence in web, social, mobile and travel technology deployments and is judged by a panel consisting of online travel experts with nominations sent in by over 65,000 Australia and Asia Pacific travel trade readers. The Davey Awards honors the creative achievements of those who derive their strength from big ideas, rather than big budgets.
The Minister of Tourism and Culture, Malaysia, Dato’ Seri Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz said that the prestigious awards signify the effectiveness and uniqueness of GOASEAN’s online platforms as a valuable tool to showcase ASEAN as a single tourism destination.
“Indeed, GOASEAN takes advantage of an effective mix of digital, social and creative excellence in positioning itself as an engaging channel to expand the unique offerings of Southeast Asia through the online platform. I applaud GOASEAN for clinching five local and international accolades within just seven short months of its operations, which is a significant recognition of the hugely influential role that the portal plays in the holiday or business travel decision-making process,” he said.
Apart from the recent wins by TravelMole Asia Pacific Web Awards and Davey Awards, GOASEAN also won the Gold and Silver awards respectively for Best Travel Website and Best Tourism Website by the prestigious W3 Awards, which recognises digital communications excellence. In Malaysia, GOASEAN was voted the Best Website of the Month for August by the Malaysia Website Awards.
GOASEAN will be launching their LetsGONow online travel booking system which will allow users to easily book flights, hotels, airport transfers and in the future, tours throughout the ASEAN region. Travellers and tourists will be able to plan and optimise their time and budget, adding more value to their overall ASEAN travelling needs and experience
GOASEAN was launched as a regional initiative to promote the ASEAN region as a single tourism destination.
