Three reasons why you should enter The Travel Awards

The deadline for entries to The Travel Awards 2019 is under two weeks away now, but if you’re still tossing up whether or not to throw your hat in the ring, we’ve just made your decision a whole lot easier to make.

Here are three solid reasons why you should enter The Travel Awards in 2019:

1. 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 37 categories to enter, covering the full gamut of the travel industry – with no limit on the number of categories you can make a play for. Check them all out here.

And for one company making the biggest, most impressive splash in the industry, the highly coveted Grand Prix Award awaits. The winner of this award will also receive an advertising package worth $75,000 courtesy of media partner Better Homes and Gardens. And if that’s not a reason to get started on your entry today, we don’t know what is.

2. 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 a gong at The Travel Awards 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 to and recognition from the best in the industry.

3. It’s a great way to end the year

Held on Friday 29 November at The Venue Alexandria in Sydney, The 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 party hard with the rest of the industry.

So, what are you waiting for? Get started on your entry/entries right HERE while you still can! We’ve also provided a few handy tips on impressing the judges, which you can check out here.
