Qantas Australian Tourism Awards head to Perth after six year hiatus
The event is expected to attract more than 800 people from across the country including Federal and State Tourism Ministers, CEOs of state and regional tourism bodies and tourism industry leaders.
Australian Tourism Awards chairman Daniel Gschwind said it will be a pleasure to return to Perth, given the last time the awards were held there was in 2011.
WA Tourism Minister Paul Papalia said he was looking forward to welcoming the nation’s tourism industry leaders in February.
“Perth has undergone a massive transformation since the Qantas Australian Tourism Awards were last held here in 2011 and this event offers a great platform to show off the changes that have taken place including our magnificent new Perth Stadium,” he said.
Australian Tourism Industry Council Chair Evan Hall said the event presented an opportunity to showcase one of Western Australia’s newest pieces of infrastructure to the national tourism industry.
“Perth has undergone a magnificent transformation since the Awards were last held in Western Australia, and it is exciting to be able to share this with our industry colleagues,” he said.
