This year, the Best of the Best (BOTB) also celebrated its 12th anniversary. These events not only bring together the luxury travel community, it has become an annual event on the calendar everyone looks forward to.

12 years ago, over a few wines and intellectual conversations, the journey of BOTB began. Like-minded individuals curated a platform free to express itself, where everyone showcases their best without undermining anyone, where healthy and constructive competition is nurtured and where all solutions for luxury travel experiences can be found.

All three events were filled with the best of the best of the travel community sharing information over laughs, chats, fine wine and gourmet dinners. Best of all, amazing prizes were won, with the collective giving away more than $240,000 worth of prizes over the three events.
