indexIn the 2017 Canberra Region Tourism Awards, the Yass Valley Information Centre is finalist in two categories which will be declared on Friday, November 18th.


In the Visitor Information Services category, the centre is a finalist and Georgia Patmore, tourism visitor services trainee at the centre, is a finalist in the Markus Gibson-Huck Young Achiever Award.


Sean Haylan, economic development and tourism manager, Yass Valley Council, stated that the finalists were rewarded for their hard work of the team in the last 12 months.


“It’s reflective of our work in welcoming visitors to the valley and surrounding villages,” Mr Haylan said.


“It is also an opportunity for the team to identify key wins and lessons, as well as opportunities for the future,” he said.


The Visitor Information Services award identifies the constant delivery of high-quality and face-to-face information services to the visitor.


It was the first time being a finalist for Ms Patmore, who has been at the centre for over eighteen months. The young achiever award recognizes individuals below 30 years for their contribution in regards to the development of a successful and professional Canberra or region tourism and events industry.


“I’m really honoured to be considered and excited about celebrating the achievements with my industry colleagues,” she said. “It’ll be great no matter the outcome. It’s great to just be out there and be considered.”
