In and amongst all the hype at Indaba this year, the much anticipated and renowned annual Welcome Awards took place on Monday, 9 May where the Sandton Sun was awarded 'Best Tourism Website'. The awards, established in 2005, recognise and promote service excellence and innovation in the local tourism industry across 9 independently judged categories. This is the first time that the hotel has received one of these prestigious Welcome awards.
Says Andrew Davidson, General Manager at the Sandton Sun: "The hotel prides itself on its distinctive style and attention to detail which carries through to our website. The site carries rich, up-to-date content; offers a convenient reservation tool; is linked to social media and feeds into the overall Southern Sun website making it a dynamic platform for local and international travellers alike. With thousands of entries having been received this year, we are extremely proud to be recognised as the best in the tourism website category."
