Did you know that nominations for the 2018 SA Tourism Awards are now open for all South Australian tourism businesses across more than 30 categories?

The South Australian Tourism Awards celebrate the State’s finest tourism businesses, recognising those who have demonstrated outstanding achievements and success throughout the year.

The Awards program allows entrants to not only showcase their success but be rewarded with improved business planning, an internal analysis process and greater development opportunities for growth and recognition, with most category winners going on to represent South Australia at a national level.

Plus SATIC and Principal Partner – the South Australian Tourism Commission are once again committed to providing increased benefits and entrant support, including the upcoming How to Enter Workshop

An exciting new category is open to entrants in 2018: Excellence in Accessible Tourism
This category is open to South Australian tourism businesses or attractions delivering tourism products or services that are welcoming for people of all abilities.  Entrants must demonstrate how they have developed a tourism experience to become more accessible.

“Calypso Star Charters has been an entrant in the SATIC Awards for close to 10 years. We find it a beneficial way to critically reflect on our performance, and use it to aid decisions to improve our business. The awards process is very thorough and it’s very rewarding to see the improvements the business has made year to year. The judge’s feedback is comprehensive and of course the industry recognition is quite humbling. Even without winning or achieving a medal it is a very beneficial process for any tourism business to undertake. It forces you to spend the time to think about your business, something we rarely find enough time to do. Some tips would be to sell yourself and be persistent, the real winners in business are the ones who have some money in the bank at the end of the year, and the SATIC Awards process will help achieve this.”
Andrew Wright, General Manager, Calypso Star Charters
