NTA Names Top Ranked Destinations and Suppliers

http://www.travelagentcentral.com/trends-research/nta-names-top-ranked-destinations-and-suppliers-38784

The NTA member tour operators named the winners of its second annual Distinguished Dozen awards: 12 categories of destinations, attractions, hotels and restaurants selected as the favorites of NTA tour operators. The winners were named on the final day of Travel Exchange, NTA's annual convention, held this year in conjunction with the United Motorcoach Association.
The awards recognize product quality and partnerships, the NTA said. The winners were honored with gold, silver or bronze awards. (Because of tie votes in several categories, there are more than a dozen winners of each gold and silver, and in some cases, no bronze award was given.)
