Tourism Industry Awards

Entries are now open!

Entries are now open for the new, expanded New Zealand Tourism Industry Awards programme.

These new-look Tourism Industry Awards will celebrate individual and business success across our dynamic $24 billion industry. They will also provide a benchmark of excellence and inspiration to other tourism businesses.  

We have three individual awards for the outstanding performers in our industry across the generations, plus awards that recognise business excellence, industry alignment and organisations that are enabling the industry to reach the Tourism 2025 aspirational goal of $41 billion total tourism revenue in 2025. 

The New Zealand Tourism Industry Awards can help you raise the profile of your operation, enhance staff morale and gain recognition for your achievements from your industry peers.

The winners will be announced at a dinner in Auckland on 2 October 2015. Tickets to the Tourism Industry Awards Dinner will be available to purchase in July. The Awards programme is run by the Tourism Industry Association New Zealand (TIA).

Who enters?

The Tourism Industry Awards are open to both members and non-members of TIA. The Awards attract a wide range of entries from a variety of sectors.

Past winners have included SMEs and large corporations. The one thing they all have in common is that they are industry leaders, and they have proved that by winning a Tourism Industry Award.
