The Monaco Government Tourist Office in New York has recently been awarded a distinction by readers of Incentive magazine, who have chosen to recognise the office with the prestigious “Platinum Partner Award 2017”.

The prize was determined by an online vote to mark the quality of service offered to clients.

The winners of this award, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, are selected by the most qualified decision makers within the private sector, and rewards destinations and service providers who, in the readers’ view, played a key role in motivating their employees and clients over the past year.

Cindy Hoddeson, Director of the Monaco Tourism Office in North America, said initiatives such as dollar-guaranteed packages and VAT refunds on accommodation and food costs, in addition to quality of service, encourage event organisers to evaluate Monaco in such a positive way.

Ms Hoddeson also mentioned “this award also rewards attentive and tailor-made service”.

 Winners are elected on the following criteria: destination, establishment or travel service, quality and degree of professionalism, degree of credibility and promotional support. The complete list of winners will be published in Incentive magazine’s July/August 2017 issue and on their website.
