Hello and welcome to the annual Condé Nast Traveller Middle East Readers’ Choice Awards, the GCC’s premier travel industry awards as voted for by the readers of the magazine – all of you. In the following sections, you can vote for your favourite travel experiences, from destinations and hotels, to airlines and tour operators.

This year, we’re looking forward towards the future of luxury travel, which includes a more experiential, authentic and sometimes off-the-beaten-path approach to travel. You will find this viewpoint reflected in the categories – we can’t wait to hear what you think. Voting is now open, so go ahead and make yourself heard – and don’t forget, you’ll be in with a chance to win an exceptional prize just for voting. Finally, watch out to see who goes home with the honours when we announce the shortlist and the results at a red-carpet gala on November 14. Thank you for your time and your votes.

Voting closes on October 24.
