Wanaka, New Zealand (Tuesday March 6, 2018) Lake Wanaka Tourism (LWT) has been shortlisted as a Mumbrella Travel Marketing Awards finalist, in the ‘Best Use of Native or Content Marketing’ category for their 2017 #skiWanaka campaign.

Australia’s only dedicated travel marketing awards attracts entries from the very best agencies across PR, media and advertising teams worldwide, that deliver outstanding work and results for travel brands and destinations.

LWT’s General Manager James Helmore said, to be included in a shortlist that includes; Clemenger BBDO, Flare BBDO, Groove Q, One Green Bean, UM and Tourism Australia is a major achievement.

“LWT adopted a fresh approach of marketing ski to Australians in 2017 and to be named a finalist amongst such an esteemed group is definitely validation of this strategy, the quality of content produced, and the results achieved.

Ski is a vital sector for this region, and this campaign was successful on so many levels.
