The best event of the year

The International Theatre Festival in Sibiu was awarded a diploma for the best event of the year within the Excellency Awards Gala organized by Hotel Tourism & Leisure Investment Conference, which took place on Thursday, May 22, in Bucharest.

Following the vote of the jury, the most important event in the hotel, tourism and hospitality industry in Romania awarded the prize for the best event of the year, ex-aequo, to the International Festival in Sibiu and the George Enescu Festival. The diploma and the trophy for this prize were handed in by Lucian Boronea, from Accent Travel.

This is the second such prize awarded to the Sibiu International Theatre Festival within this Gala, once again demonstrating how a community can be strengthened through culture and how it could find innovative and creative strategies, models and partnerships, capable of integrating culture in the process of urban regeneration. The festival places culture at the center of the city life and seeks through it the inspiration to lead the community into the future.

The Hotel Tourism & Leisure Investment Conference event, currently at its 7th edition, took place on May 22 and 23 at the JW Marriott Bucharest Grand Hotel, offering a present-day, detailed perspective over the most important changes in the hotel, tourism and hospitality industry.
