Routes Silk Road 2019

Routes Silk Road 2019

The Routes Silk Road 2019 Marketing Awards provide your organisation with the opportunity to highlight the successes in the marketing campaigns that have driven route development in your region over the past 12 months. 

The Routes Silk Road 2019 Marketing Awards will take place at the Routes Silk Road Networking Evening and the Overall winner will be automatically shortlisted for the World Routes 2019 Marketing Awards.

Airlines wishing to vote for their airport or destination partners in the Routes Silk Road 2019 Marketing Awards should email their nominations to Kimberley Hall, with a brief explanation of why they think they deserve the award. Please note that all nominations will be kept completely anonymous. 

New for 2019, this year's Marketing Awards also allow airports and tourism authorities from the Silk Road and its serving regions to self-nominate for one of the most prestigious awards in the industry. A panel of expert airline judges will review each shortlisted organisation's submissions considering their particular relationship, effective results, provision of data and information or innovative techniques to establish new or maintain and develop existing routes. 

Any organisation wishing to be recognised for a Routes Silk Road 2019 Marketing Award must be in attendance at the event. To book your place, or for more information about the event, please contact Senior Account Manager, Sasha Woodward.

It’s a long-burn process, but I think winning this award is the culmination of two years of really hard work. We don’t do it for the awards, but this is fantastic recognition for what we’ve achieved.”

The Routes Silk Road Marketing Awards ceremony will take place during the Networking Evening on Tuesday 16 July 2019 at Routes Silk Road in Nur-Sultan.
