The European Association of Economy and Competitiveness was created to promote, develop and recognise the mechanisms of companies that demonstrate excellence in business development and performance within a European framework.

The Association’s annual awards pick out high achievers across a number of fields including entrepreneurs, doctors, lawyers, magistrates and communication experts. This year Cititravel, organisers of corporate events in Spain and Portugal, joined their ranks as the proud recipient of the European Gold Medal for Merit in Work.

Companies that receive this award are recognised as a model to follow and a benchmark in their field. Factors taken into account are quality, innovation, entrepreneurial spirit and business awareness – all of which Cititravel has displayed in abundance over more than three decades of offering clients the highest levels of service, always striving to exceed expectations.

The award ceremony took place at the NH Collection Madrid Eurobuilding on 15 September 2017 attended by high ranking dignitaries from all over the continent. After having won multiple prizes on a national and international level in the world of corporate group travel, winning this award, Europe-wide and with all business sectors eligible, is especially satisfying for Cititravel DMC.
