Langkawi –  The Langkawi Development Authority (LADA) bagged another award at the Asian Tourism and Hospitality (ATH) Awards 2022-23 as they were crowned the ‘Leading Government Tourism Board of the Year”.

Held at Le Méridien, Kuala Lumpur last night, the lead agency overseeing the development and advancement of Langkawi was recognised for their efforts in establishing Langkawi as a renowned world-class tourism destination. The event also saw the attendance of various tourism and hospitality agencies from all around Asia.

“We are extremely pleased to have been granted this prestigious award. To be acknowledged in front of our peers and fellow industry players will serve as a great motivation for us to keep pushing on in order to elevate Langkawi to greater heights. We believe we are on the right track in our goal of ensuring Langkawi is established as a top tourist destination in the world. As a team fully focused on our goals, we are more motivated than ever to capitalise on the limitless opportunities which are aimed at accelerating the growth of tourism in Langkawi. We hope there are many more special nights like tonight on the horizon for LADA” said Deputy Chief Executive Office of LADA, Mr Wan Kamarul Faisal Wan Kamardin.

LADA will be looking forward to the future as numerous opportunities are inbound for business and tourism development alike. The Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace Exhibition (LIMA 2023) is set to be held from 23-27 May 2023 at the beautiful island of Langkawi, Malaysia. The prospects do not end there as LADA will also be hosting the next edition of Routes Asia 2024 in February next year. Both these events will serve to facilitate conversations between industry players for business development and act as a catalyst for economic recovery on the island.

The first edition of the Asian Tourism and Hospitality Awards was a memorable event in celebrating the spirit of resilience and excellence; while acknowledging the business innovation and exceptional contributors of the industry. The hope for the future is that this celebration will help recognise and showcase organisations and in return, shape the future of the industry with strong leadership. The ATH Awards was organised by TIN Media together with AHHRA (Asia Hospitality Human Resource Association).
