Deadline Extended For ANZ FETA Applications

The ANZ Fiji Excellence in Tourism Awards Board of Trustees are extending the deadline for applications to November 7, 2016.

“With Cyclone Winston affecting so many members and giving us a challenging start to 2016, the Trustees wish to encourage more entries to make the 2016 Excellence in Tourism Awards the best ever and give our industry the recognition it deserves, therefore the closing date for entries has been extended to Monday 7th November,” said the Chairman of the Board of Trustees James Sowane.

The FETA Trustees also wish to confirm that for the individual awards, organisations and others may nominate more than one person for recognition in the 3 Individual Award categories – Fiji Pride Champion, Emerging Tourism Leader and Tourism Leader.

The extension also offers the opportunity to those that have sent in their applications to update their submissions if they wish.

Now into its 20th season, the ANZ Fiji Excellence in Tourism Awards celebrate the distinct contribution of outstanding players and properties in local tourism, the country’s largest industry, employer and foreign exchange earner.

Applications were opened on August 1, 2016 and originally due to close on October 14. They will now close on Monday 7th November and judging to commence soon after.

“There has been much interest received from industry operators to participate in the Awards, and we are pleased that the Trustees have agreed to offer an extension given the disruptive start to the year,” said FETA Trustee & Organizing Committee Member, Ms Olivia Mavoa.

There are 13 award categories to apply for, covering individual achievements, operations, industry support, accommodation, marketing, activities and sustainability.

Award finalists will enjoy invaluable publicity, post-award PR exposure and award-winning badges of excellence to use across company marketing materials.

The Tourism Industry can look forward to an exciting night on February 17, 2017 when Winners of the 2016 season will be announced at the ANZ FETA Gala Dinner.
