New Zealand Tourism Awards celebrations tonight

Tonight is arguably the biggest evening in the tourism industry's calendar – the New Zealand Tourism Awards dinner.

The dinner will be hosted at Horncastle Arena, Christchurch, where finalists will be recognised and winners will be crowned.

It's also an opportunity for those in the industry to get together and celebrate the success of organisations and individuals.

There are a number of categories to be won, including Emerging Tourism Leader, Industry Champion, Maori Tourism, Community Engagement and more.

The winner of the highly-coveted Air New Zealand Supreme Tourism Award will also be announced at tonight's event.

Last year's Air New Zealand Supreme Tourism awards went to Tourism Holdings Ltd, with judges saying that tbh is an amazing success story, revealing incredible vision and commitment in a fiercely competitive environment.
