Parkstad Limburg won the world’s most important tourist award at the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) in Dallas on April 8th. Park City defeated the Swiss National Parks and Cape Town. The jury praised the region for the development of industrial area to tourist destination; the transition from ‘black to green’
Kelly Regterschot, Portfolio Manager Tourism City Park City Park: “We are very proud of this World Tournament Prize. This is a recognition for all the work we have done with our partners in recent years to put Parkstad as a tourist destination on the map. “
The transformation power that the jury will determine will also be accelerated and strengthened by IBA Parkstad. With innovative, forward-looking projects, IBA transforms the region into a sustainable way. The positioning of Parkstad as an attractive tourist region is of great importance. Several IBA projects focus their attention on stimulating Parkstad as an attractive area for visitors from outside. These projects work from the strength of the region: the beautiful landscape, rich cultural history and extraordinary hospitality.
IBA Park City congratulates Stadregio Parkstad, Limburg Province and VVV South Limburg with this very valuable price.
