GCC Awards – The Winners 2015/6

GCC-TrophyWe called and you answered in your hundreds of thousands to help us choose the best of the best for the Food and Travel GCC Tourism Awards. So a big thank you to all those who helped make it happen. From the initial call for nominations back in February to the gala awards ceremony that was held at the Ritz-Carlton on 29th February 2016, it was a journey of epic proportions. The results were closer than we could ever have imagined and our expert panel once again had a hard time in picking the winners in some categories. The gala dinner was a packed affair with a stunning five-course meal from executive chef Richard Glaze and his amazing team at the Ritz-Carlton Bahrain, and a special thanks to Sheikh Khaled Bin Humood Al Khalifa, CEO of the Bahrain Tourism & Exhibition Authority for his support and vision throughout the year. Read on to see who won the coveted Food and Travel gongs…
