Switzerland Tourism recently honored Ryder-Walker’s own Chris Pranskatis with the Goldflower Award 2009. The Goldflower recognizes “Chris P.” for his “long lasting and ongoing passion for Switzerland, his outstanding support in promoting tourism to Switzerland, and his extraordinary achievements as a successful tour operator in the North American market.”
Switzerland Tourism awards the Goldflower every two years during their industry trade show, the Switzerland Travel Mart. This year’s travel mart took place in the lakeside city of Lucerne.
Recipients of the award also receive a new Bucherer watch, (for maintaining Swiss punctuality of course), and they enjoy the honor of wearing the coveted goldflower lapel pin. The Goldflower Award is the highest honor that Switzerland Tourism bestows its partners from the North American Market.
Congrats Chris P!
This is just one more reason to hike with Ryder-Walker, a true Switzerland specialist.
