A brand new way for the industry to unite and celebrate is just around the corner.

And we want you to put forward your favourite travel companies – whether they be wholesalers, airlines, luxury brands or technology companies – and tell us who you think most deserves an Australian Travel Award. After all, the best usually come highly recommended.
So let us know who you think should (or will) win here.

In case you’re not convinced, here are a few reasons (read: reminders) for you to enter the Australian Travel Awards:
You could win some incredible prizes
This first point goes without saying – if you don’t enter, you can’t win!
There are a whopping 35 categories to enter into, covering the full gamut of the travel industry – with no limit on the number of categories you can enter. There’s everything from, boutique hotel to sustainable tourism to technology provider to tourism board of the year. Check out all the categories here.
And for one company making the biggest, most impressive splash in the industry overall, the highly coveted Grand Prix Award awaits you. The victorious winner of this award will also receive an advertising package worth over $75,000 across the Seven West Media network. And if that’s not a reason to get started on your entry today, we don’t know what is.
The awards are partly consumer-facing
As the Australian Travel Awards are presented in association with Seven West Media’s Better Homes and Gardens and 7Travel, it means your company gets some amazing exposure to consumers.
The People’s Choice category is consumer-facing, and voting interest will be generated by both Better Homes and Gardens and 7Travel. And that’s a whole lotta voting interest.
But you’re only eligible to win People’s Choice if you enter the awards! So get started (or finish that entry you’ve almost completed) right here.
It’s good for business
This one is a no-brainer – entering these awards means you could potentially win the aforementioned amazing advertising package, which will send your customer numbers soaring.
Winning an Australian Travel Award will also be a show of excellence that can be used to promote your business and gain market share with consumers, who nowadays demand brands they can trust to deliver the best.
The awards are also judged by over 50 Australia’s most experienced travel industry alumni as well as the country’s foremost marketing experts – which means your company is getting exposure and recognition from the best in the industry.
It’s a great way to end the year
Held on November 30, 2018, at Paddington Town Hall in Sydney, the Australian Travel Awards are the perfect night to celebrate a year of hard work and to recharge your batteries for another year ahead.
There’s no better time to reward your employees for a job well done, as well as celebrate with the rest of the industry.
