IMPORTANT AWARDS UPDATE
From 2016, all Queensland Tourism Awards entrants are required to be certified or accredited in order to be eligible for entry into the Awards program. This accreditation or certification will be in addition to the legal requirements necessary for operation of your business (e.g. registrations for vehicles and equipment, licence requirements for employees).
In 2014, the Queensland Tourism Awards celebrated 30 years of excellence and achievement in Queensland's tourism industry. This video was shown at the Queensland Tourism Awards Gala Ceremony, held on Friday 28 November 2014 at the Royal International Convention Centre.
