The Tourism Industry Awards are made possible by the generous support of our our Awards partners:
Pata New Zealand Trust Young Tourism Leader Award
The PATA New Zealand Trust was formed by a group of New Zealand’s tourism leaders when the international body of PATA (the Pacific Asia Travel Association) decided to close down its chapter network. Using the residual funds from the chapter and with further bequests and donations from those involved in the Trust, it developed and supports the annual Young Tourism Leader Award.
Trust Chairwoman Glenys Coughlan says “many of us who have had long careers in tourism have benefitted from being supported or mentored by key figures in the industry.
“The PATA NZ Trust Young Tourism Leader Award is our way of perpetuating the professional development of emerging leaders in the industry and it is incredibly rewarding to see the people who have received our award go on to greater heights during their careers.”
