Nominate now for the North Coast Regional Tourism Awards

Media release - 3 May 2018

Nominations are now open for this year’s North Coast Regional Tourism Awards.

The awards, which started in 2004, are held annually to acknowledge excellence in tourism across NSW and are now a major industry event for regional NSW.

As part of Kempsey Shire Council’s economic development program and as owner of the five Macleay Valley Holiday Parks, Council is encouraging local operators to enter the awards.

“The awards provide an opportunity for those working in tourism to gain an insight into their industry, achieve recognition for their success and promote tourism within their region,” said Council’s Economic Sustainability Officer, Kristy Forche-Baird.

“Entrants can be made up of tourism businesses, events, marketing organisations, clubs and individuals.

“If you have a tourism business or know of one which you think deserves to be recognised, please make sure you submit a nomination.”

Winners of the Regional Tourism Awards gain finalist status upon entering the NSW State Tourism Awards, and if successful, go onto the National Tourism Awards.

The closing date for submissions is Friday 25 May.

The awards will take place on Thursday 26 July at Opal Cove Resort, Coffs Harbour.
