The South Asian Travel Awards (SATA) Gala 2019 will be held on September 19 and 20.

SATA was launched in 2016 with the intention to provide brands across the region’s travel and hospitality industry with a credible platform to be recognized for their outstanding achievements.

As the first brand to celebrate a wide and encompassing spectrum of hospitality and travel in the South Asian region, SATA has received immense support from regional hospitality brands and organizations. The first SATA Gala ceremony was hosted at the Mount Lavinia Hotel in 2016, with subsequent SATA Gala’s held at Equator Village Maldives in 2017 and The Taj Mahal Palace Hotel, Mumbai in 2018. Now in its fourth year, SATA 2019 has received over 500 nominations from a plethora of segments within the industry.

The 2019 edition of the South Asian Travel Awards (SATA) 2019 evaluations conducted by an expert panel of judges began in Maldives during June and continued to major cities in the region including Colombo, Bangalore, New Delhi, Kathmandu, and concluded in Dhaka, Bangladesh on July 19, 2019. With participants from 6 Destinations (India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Nepal and Maldives) and endorsement from more than 17 Travel Industry Organizations and National Tourism Bodies, SATA has grown immeasurably over the past four years.

“After the recent setbacks suffered by the industry due to the cowardly and deplorable Easter Sunday attacks, we have after much debate decided to have the final Gala event in Sri Lanka this September as a mark of solidarity and support”, said Vice President SATA, Sri Lanka Sameer Yoonus.

Velana International Airport, Maldives – confirmed as the Platinum Partner for the prestigious regional award between the 6 countries in South Asia in order to have a good networking and promote Maldives as a destination.
