Between 11-20 March you can vote for the nominees of Visit Covasna Gala
The online voting for the Visit Covasna Gala has started, where you have the opportunity to vote for the 220 participants in 24 categories, who are active in the field of tourism. Starting from the 11th of March, on the www.gala.visitcovasna.com website you can express your vote for the candidates of the contest, organized for the second time by the Covasna County Tourism Association, Covasna County Council and Covasna Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
Grüman Róbert, vice president of Covasna County Council, said: “After the first successful edition, we are pleased that this year we have registered over 220 entries in the 24 categories. This is a great satisfaction, therefore, we will be able to bring in the light of the spotlights and give recognition to the tour operators who work daily for the development of the tourism, thus encouraging them to make efforts to provide quality tourism services. Considering that this year, due to the epidemic, tourism needs more attention, it is expected that the number of tourists will decrease, but I hope that those working in this industry will be able to adapt to the new challenges.
The vice president emphasized that this year, opportunities will be offered to actors from six new sectors of tourism. In his opinion, it deserved to extend this competition with six other categories, because in just a few days six nominations arrived in the confectionery category, and eight nominations were registered in the tourism innovation category. In addition, 11 nominations were registered in the category of sports and cultural events and six in the category of gastronomic events. There are also five units from the food-truck category in Covasna county for who votes can be expressed.
Online voting is similar to last year's. The voting process is linked to an IP address and an e-mail address, so only one vote can be cast in each category. The winners, who will be awarded at the Visit Covasna Gala, scheduled for March 26 at the Orchidea Events restaurant in Sfântu Gheorghe, will be chosen based on the results of the vote and the decision of a professional jury consisting of eight members.
