Nominations for the Whitsunday Tourism Awards started from today. This event is considered the region’s premier tourism event. Businesses can nominate for up to 30 categories including ‘Best tourism attraction’, ‘Best new tourism business’ and ‘Best accommodation’.
Early bird tickets will be available till the 30th of July for the event to be hosted on Hamilton Island. According to the Tourism Whitsundays CEO Craig Turner, the Tourism Awards would honor excellence promoting a world class tourism experience.
To quote Mr. Turner, “The awards recognise growth in tourism products and services, and are based on businesses having a solid business plan, a focus on innovation and targeted marketing campaigns. While the reward and recognition of winning an award is important, it is more about the process of writing a business plan, setting goals and targets, innovating your business and then reviewing your success at the end of the year.”
The businesses will be given the best opportunities for evaluating and reviewing their practices. Champagne and canapes will be available on arrival at the Whitsunday Tourism Awards Night, along with a three-course meal and live entertainment featuring the Potbelleez.
