Halal In Travel Awards is a celebration of the travel industry players' efforts to make Halal travel a seamless experience. These awards recognize destinations, organizations, companies, and individuals who have made a considerable impact on the Muslim lifestyle travel segment spanning different categories.
There are four categories of awards. Each category has a list of awards given to the top performer based on the winner selection process. Some of the awards are based on the GMTI scores, some are through a nomination process followed by the selection of winners by a panel of judges consisting of industry experts, and another set of awards based on popular votes.
