Celebrating Excellence: The 2024 NSW Tourism Awards Open for Nominations

The 2024 NSW Tourism Awards officially commence today, heralding a significant annual event that not only celebrates top achievements in the state’s tourism sector but also serves as a gateway to the Australian Tourism Awards.

Presented by the NSW Tourism Association, the NSW Tourism Awards are an integral part of the prestigious Australian Tourism Awards. These awards are designed to recognise outstanding accomplishments across a wide range of categories within the tourism industry. Open to all tourism and tourism-related businesses in New South Wales, the categories include tourist attractions, tours and transport, festivals and events, food and wine, accommodation, and more, offering a comprehensive platform for businesses to showcase their best practices and innovative approaches.

More Than Just an Awards Program

The NSW Tourism Awards are much more than just a ceremony to hand out accolades. For 40 years, the awards have played a crucial role in the development of the tourism industry in NSW. This longevity and success stem significantly from the developmental program that forms the backbone of the awards.

Participation in the awards is not just about vying for recognition. It serves as a valuable tool for business development. Entrants benefit from in-depth feedback on their submissions, provided by experienced judges. This feedback is pivotal as it helps businesses identify their strengths and areas for improvement. By participating, businesses are not merely entering a competition; they are also partaking in a developmental process that encourages reflection and refinement of their operations.

The Benefits of Reflecting on Business Practices

The process of compiling submissions for the awards itself is beneficial. It compels businesses to reflect critically on every aspect of their operations, from customer service and marketing strategies to sustainability practices and beyond. This introspective process can uncover insights that might otherwise remain unexploited, driving businesses toward more effective strategies and innovative solutions that ensure long-term success.

How to Participate

For those interested in nominating their business for the NSW Tourism Awards, now is the time to act. The opening of the awards today invites members of the industry to step forward and showcase their contributions to the thriving NSW tourism landscape. The variety of categories ensures that there is a niche for every type of tourism enterprise.

Submissions are not due until July, but its important to gain a head start so you can start collating all the wonderful things you have done in this financial year!

The NSW Tourism Awards not only foster excellence but also drive the competitive spirit and continuous improvement that are essential to the vibrancy and sustainability of the tourism industry in New South Wales. By nominating your business, you are stepping into a realm of opportunity where the ultimate reward is not just a trophy, but a chance to deeply evaluate and enhance your business practices for future success.
