The IMA acknowledges the highest standards of website design and development, and honor individuals and organizations for their outstanding executions. Entries are evaluated using five specific criteria: design, content, feature, functionality, usability, and standards compliance and cross-browser compatibility.

Of the 10 TRAVELCLICK-designed websites awarded, the highest honor went to Andara Phuket Resort's website with a Best in Class Award – encompassing the highest standards of professionalism, standards compliance, and impeccable planning and execution. This award indicates that http://www.andaraphuket.com/ is one of the world's most well executed websites.

In addition to the Best in Class Award, nine other TRAVELCLICK-designed websites were awarded Outstanding Achievement Awards:

"TRAVELCLICK is delighted and honored to have received these awards for the innovative work we've done on behalf of our clients," said Jerome Wise, Vice President of Global Internet Marketing Services for TRAVELCLICK. "While our primary goal is to help hotels maximize their direct web bookings, it's also satisfying that our work is recognized as outstanding by the web marketing industry."
