2 EU BUSINESS NEWS / European Travel Awards 2022 Contents , Welcome to the European Travel Awards 2022 Currently in its first year, we at EU Business News are thrilled to host the European Travel Awards 2022! Focusing on those at the forefront of the travel, tourism, and leisure industry, we seek to shine a light on those who have shown true excellence in commitment, determination, and customer service more than ever over the past 12 months across Europe. After an uneasy couple of years in the industry during and in the wake of the global pandemic, the travel industry is improving day by day. Statistics from Eurostat show that last year, the number of nights spent at EU tourist accommodations totalled 1.8 billion, which was a 27% increase compared with 2020. With the easing of travel restrictions, this increase is set to rise in 2022 as tourists plan their next European Getaway and we at EU Business News aim to shine a light on those who accommodate tourists, those who make the travelling process run smoothly, and those who create an enjoyable experience for tourists of Europe from across the globe.
