Nominations for the 2022 Victorian Tourism Awards are now open, and there are a number of resources, support programs and mentoring opportunities available to guide entrants through the application process.

Participating in the Victorian Tourism Awards is similar to going through a business planning process. The program will provide you with the opportunity to investigate key business issues and realign your business objectives, values, and positioning, and most importantly, where your business is heading in the future. There is also the prized bonus of being recognised by industry and consumers for your innovation and business excellence.

“The Tourism Awards mentoring program gave us great insights on how our business contributes to the wider tourism industry and how it is viewed from an outsider’s point of view. As a first-time entrant, having this support really provided us a better understanding of the awards process and all of the facets of our own business that were relevant for our submission.”

– Michael Aveson, Grape Explorations Australia
