Moroccan Tourism Startup Among Condé Nast Traveler’s 2021 Top Travel Specialists
Condé Nast Traveler magazine, a New York-based reference in the world of leisure and travel, has chosen Casablanca-based tourism start-up “Maana” among its top luxury travel specialists for 2021.
Each year, the monthly publication designates a pool of 350 travel specialists who “achieve the impossible while sparing the logistics” to their customers.
Contacted by MAP, “Maana” Director-General, Hamza Eddahbi said he was proud of this recognition from a global reference in luxury travel.
“We are proud of being chosen as the best specialist in luxury tourism for Morocco by Condé Nast Traveler,” he said.
This is the consecration of the whole destination Morocco and is the result of the hard work of both the public and private sectors, Eddahbi told MAP.
According to him, the choice of “Maana” as a traveler specialist is also the result of the hard work of the company’s whole team, which in five years has been able to contribute, at its level, to the development of Morocco as a luxury destination in markets that have not yet been very exploited.
On Morocco’s specificity as a destination for tourism, Eddahbi said that the Kingdom is a land of ancient civilizations, where the traveler discovers a dynamic cultural and architectural scene.
Travelers are seeking the perfect balance between heritage, unconventional experiences, nature and culture, and Morocco is all of that, he explained.
Regarding the role of the travel specialist in a post-COVID world, Eddahbi explained that “in the new paradigm of the post-Covid world, the role of the travel consultant will become pivotal in providing added value.”
