New category added for The Travel Awards!

The chances of winning at The Travel Awards have just become even greater, with a new category added to the 37 already in play!

After being inundated with requests, Travel Weekly is excited to announce that The Travel Recruitment Agency of the Year category has joined the awards program for 2019.

The category, which is the first of its kind for a major Australian travel industry awards program, is for – you guessed it – agencies specialising in recruitment for all sectors within the travel industry. Check out the submission criteria for this category here.

In association with media partner Better Homes and Gardens and principal partner Crystal, The Travel Awards are designed to celebrate wholesalers, destinations, airlines, tourism boards, cruise lines, retailers and the myriad of other companies that make the travel industry so amazing.

Capitalising on the phenomenal reach of Better Homes and Gardens, these awards will also offer travel brands the chance of winning an incredible advertising package worth $75,000 from which to market themselves.

Judged by more than 50 of Australia’s most experienced travel industry alumni and experts from the marketing sector, 38 categories cover the full gamut of the travel industry.

We also have a couple of updated categories this year, so be sure to review the criteria document closely before submitting your entry (or entries).

And, of course, the highly coveted Grand Prix Award will shine a light on one company making the biggest, most impressive splash in the industry.

Get cracking on your entry/entries now simply by clicking HERE! We’ve also provided a few handy tips on impressing the judges, which you can check out here.

This year, the Travel Awards will be held on Friday 29 November at The Venue Alexandria in Sydney, marking the perfect time to celebrate a year of hard work and to recharge your batteries for another year ahead.
