Entries open for NZ Tourism Awards 2016

Entries open for NZ Tourism Awards 2016


Entries open today for the prestigious New Zealand Tourism Awards 2016, with competition expected to be fierce given the record results the industry is achieving.

This is the second year of a new-look and expanded awards programme celebrating individuals and organisations that are fast-tracking the industry towards its Tourism 2025 $41 billion annual revenue goal.

“Tourism is now New Zealand’s largest export industry, with earnings exceeding all forecasts. That growth is being supported by outstanding performance from operators across the country and we encourage them to enter,” says Chris Roberts, Chief Executive of Tourism Industry Aotearoa (TIA) which runs the Awards.

“These are the industry’s premier awards and the winners provide a benchmark of excellence and inspiration to other tourism businesses.

“There are many benefits from entering, and for our winners there is also a generous package of prizes, with the Air New Zealand Supreme Tourism Award winner receiving international air travel of $10,000.”

Mr Roberts says there are individual awards for tourism industry leaders across the generations, plus awards that recognise business excellence, as well as awards for marketing, Maori culture, environmental excellence, industry alignment and for an organisation enabling the industry to achieve its aspirational goals.

The winners will be announced at a gala Awards Dinner in Auckland on 29 September 2016.
