Venue Awards

The tourism awards celebrating the best museums and attractions around the world


Museums and attractions have had to be more creative than ever to provide exceptional experiences to customers. That’s why our annual tourism awards series, the Remarkable Venue Awards, is shining a spotlight on venues that are moving the industry forward – and your venue could be one of them.

Apply to win a Remarkable Venue Award

This year, Tiqets has introduced two new tourism awards where museums and attractions are invited to submit an application to win the award. These two awards categories are Best Hidden Gem and Most Innovative.

If you win one of our application-based awards, you’ll receive a Tiqets marketing package valued at €5,000 which includes promotion across the product and channels such as social media, email, blog and more.

Best Hidden Gem

 A hidden gem refers to something which is outstanding, unique or special. This award category is focused on highlighting lesser-known or more niche attractions to travellers the world over.

Most Innovative Venue

This year’s Most Innovative award is about spotlighting the venues that found new and original ways to appeal to customers within the new COVID-19 regulations.

There will be a winner for each award in each country recognized in the awards: the UK & Ireland, the US, the Netherlands, Spain, Italy and France. Each winner will receive a marketing package from Tiqets valued at €5,000. Applications must be sent before November 20, 2020, 17:00. Netherlands (GMT+1) to be considered.

Discover the award categories

The Remarkable Venue Awards were established in 2017 to recognize and celebrate the best attractions and museums in the most-visited cities around the world. Since the first Remarkable Venue Awards, awards ceremonies have taken place annually in Amsterdam, Barcelona, London, New York, Paris, and Rome.

The 2020 Remarkable Venue Awards will be a global, online event on 9 December 2020 celebrating seven categories of awards in six countries: UK & Ireland, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and the United States. 

The selection of the winning venues in the Best Attraction, Best Museum, Best Onsite Experiences, Most Remarkable Venue, and Best Landmark categories will be based on the more than 750,000 customer reviews of venues on Tiqets.com in the last year. All venues listed on Tiqets.com in these countries will be considered for these tourism awards, and all venues — whether you work with Tiqets or not — are encouraged to apply for our two new award categories: Best Hidden Gem and Most Innovative.
