New awards to honour tourism

A new partnership between the Tourism Managers Group of Northern Rivers and Mid North Coast Tourism has created the North Coast Tourism Awards, which will be held for the first time in August.

“The North Coast Tourism Awards will recognise success, provide a benchmark for best practice within the tourism industry, promote business planning and encourage the continual raising of standards within the industry,” Mitch Lowe, chair of the Northern Rivers Tourism Managers Group, said.

There are more than 20 categories for tourism businesses to enter and winners will receive automatic entry for the NSW Tourism Awards.

“The Mid North Coast have hosted their own, highly successful regional awards for the past five years with tourism industry operators reaping the awards in both planning for success and receiving national recognition within the industry. This is a fantastic opportunity for industry operators within the Northern Rivers to capitalise on this joint partnership, to re-build the awards within our region and to open up the competition to strengthen the submissions at a state and national level,” Mr Lowe said.
