Xpress Portugal wins at the World Golf Awards

Xpress Portugal wins at the World Golf Awards

After only 1 year operating, Xpress Portugal was awarded as Portugal's Best Outbound Golf Tour Operator at the World Golf Awards, which is a part of the World Travel Awards. These are known as the Oscars of the tourism industry, and were revealed during a gala ceremony at the Conrad Algarve Hotel on the 15th of November 2014.

This has been an outstanding achievement, as Xpress Portugal was nominated for two categories: Portugal's Best Inbound Golf Tour Operator, and Portugal's Best Outbound Golf Tour Operator.

Mr Nuno de Menezes Correia, Managing Director of Xpress Portugal, received the award for Portugal's Best Outbound Golf Tour Operator and said "I am overwhelmed with this award. The company started only in March 2013, and it's a good and encouraging sign that we are already receiving such an important recognition from our peers and industry partners. It's not easy to be an outbound golf tour operator in Portugal, as this is a relatively small market with only 16.000 registered golfers, so we develop our activity searching for clients from other segments and markets. More importantly, we are also an Inbound Tour Operator, and in this primary activity we are proud to be the incoming agents for some of the most important European golf tour operators (one of them, Golfresepti, has also been awarded in this Gala, as Finland's Best Outbound Golf Tour Operator). I hope that this award will help us to continue to grow in a sustainable way, and to strengthen our position as an important player in this industry".

In the same Gala ceremony, the most important award went to Portugal, as the World's Best Golf Destination 2014, and this announcement brought a loud standing ovation in the convention room. Hundreds of delegates from all over the World had already been impressed by the weekend's program that included golf tournaments in the Quinta do Lago South, Laranjal and North courses, wine tastings, and various other activities.

Mr. Nuno de Menezes Correia climbed on the stage for a second time, to receive the award for Finland's Best Outbound Golf Tour Operator, on behalf of our partner Golfresepti. "This was also a reason to be proud, as we feel that we also give a small contribution to the good service provided to Golfresepti's clients in Portugal", Mr Menezes added.

Xpress Portugal would also like to congratulate all the other winners in the 2014 edition, particularly Quinta do Lago South (Portugal's Best Golf Course), Vidago Palace Hotel (Portugal's Best Golf Hotel) and PAGS (Portugal's Best Inbound Golf Tour Operator).
