The first-ever Xpedition Annual Gala Awards held in September 2019 recognized Filipina Miss Universe Philippines 2018 titleholder Catriona Gray as its “Woman of the Year” awardee.
Wurtzbach, the Miss Universe 2015 winner, received recognition from the Dubai-based luxury magazine Xpedition in partnership with non-profit Smile Train which invited some of the “most inspirational people around the world” for the second edition of the prestigious awards event hosted by Yugen PR on December 6, 2020.
The beauty queen joined fellow influential Pinoys Miss Earth Philippines Angelia Ong and Filipino-British singer Bailey May of international pop group Now United for the star-studded evening held in Sonara Camp, Dubai this year.
