About the Xenia Awards

The Xenia Hospitality awards are presented by Visit Temecula Valley (VTV) and are awarded to tourism businesses and individuals who have displayed exemplary hospitality and service to our visitors and community members. The awards were named for the Greek word "Xenia," which is defined as the concept of hospitality, or generosity and courtesy shown to those who are far from home.

VTV Is a membership-based organization, but recipients of the Xenia Awards are not required to be VTV members. VTV members in good standing may nominate businesses and individuals for the awards. The Welty Award for Tourism Professional of the Year is presented at the Temecula Valley Chamber of Commerce's Annual Gala in February and the five (5) additional awards are presented at the VTV's Awards Luncheon in March.
