The editorial office of “Tourist Prism” magazine, the official magazine of WESTM, has been carrying over the project ‘’For a new quality in tourism’’ for over 21 years. From the very beginning, the idea has been to raise the level of tourist services and stimulate innovative entrepreneurship in this area. With the help from the jury, our colleagues from other countries who cover tourism in the countries where the project takes place, we have always tried to reward those who really deserve it.

Statues and charter were awarded at the WESTM 2018 in Belgrade on October 24th, 2018 at the celebration of the 24th anniversary of the “Tourist Prism” magazine. This year, the ‘’For a new quality in tourism’’ jury decided to award ten contenders, which best describes the very strict selection and the intent to maintain the high standards of competition.
