LCD Awards

We’ve collaborated with the Leading Culture Destinations Awards again this year, partnering with them to host the Avis Travellers’ Awards which present the ‘Best Art Hotel of the Year,’ ‘Emerging Culture City of the Year’ and the ‘Best Cultural Nomad of the Year.’ Three exceptional destinations have been nominated for ‘Emerging Culture City of the Year.’ These are Medellin, Colombia, Lisbon, Portugal, and the luxurious Abu Dhabi in the UAE. The Art Hotel and Cultural Nomad categories celebrate the best in hotels leading the way in art and culture, and some very special travel journalists respectively.


To celebrate our partnership with ‘the Oscars for Museums,’ we tasked some of our Inspires contributors to document and share their first-hand insights of the hidden gems of the nominated Emerging Culture cities.
