Enter 2013 Tourism Industry Awards

Do you know a rising star changing the future of New Zealand’s $23.4 billion tourism industry? Or a visionary leader who has made a significant contribution to the industry?

Entries are now open for the 2013 Tourism Industry Awards which will celebrate the achievements of two leading individuals in the tourism industry. The Awards are managed by the Tourism Industry Association New Zealand (TIA). Enter at

The PATA Young Tourism Leader Award will be presented to a young person (35 years or under as at 31 March 2013) who, while contributing strongly in their workplace, is also engaging and improving the industry as a whole with their actions.

A fantastic new prize package for this award will offer the winner a range of opportunities that money can’t buy to draw on the experience and knowledge of key tourism influencers and leaders.

The prize package includes a chance to spend time with TIA Chief Executive Martin Snedden, and get an inside look at Tourism New Zealand and Ngai Tahu Tourism. Other opportunities will be tailored to match the interests of the award winner.

PATA New Zealand Trust chairwoman Glenys Coughlan says the new prize package reflects the aim of the Young Tourism Leader Award.

“Members of the PATA New Zealand Trust have enjoyed fantastic careers in tourism and we want to help pass on the knowledge we have gained to support the next generation of tourism leaders,” she says.

The Crowe Horwath International Sir Jack Newman Award is for an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to New Zealand’s tourism industry.

Stephen Hamilton, Director of Horwath HTL, a member of Crowe Horwath International, says that many outstanding individuals have been presented with this award over the years.

“Tourism pioneer Sir Jack Newman led the way in making it easier for travellers to visit far-flung corners of New Zealand. We look forward to recognising another individual who has dedicated their career to growing our tourism industry,” Mr Hamilton says.

The awards will be presented at the TIA Dinner which will follow the 2013 TIA Summit, taking place in Wellington on 1 October.

Organised by TIA and supported by Westpac, the 2013 TIA Summit will be firmly focused on the future, with the launch of Tourism 2025, an aspirational plan that aims to unite and inspire the industry to adapt and succeed. It has a firm focus on growth – yield, profitability and return on investment ¬– and improved sector productivity, all underpinning a quality visitor experience.
