47 Qualmark partners have been announced this week as finalists in the 100% Pure New Zealand Experience Awards 2021. The winners are to be announced at an awards ceremony to be held in the Great Hall at the Christchurch Art Centre on July 28 which will form part of Qualmark’s annual programme of events.
The entries for the awards were of an exceptionally high standard, complementing the achievements they have already exhibited to be Qualmark Gold awarded partners.
Chair of the Judging Panel, Sue Parcell says that the entries truly reflect the enormous contribution that tourism businesses make to communities in which they operate.
“These are operators that have the elements of manaakitanga, tiaki and whānau firmly embedded in their offering and during the past 18 months they have continued delivering an outstanding experience for domestic visitors. What is more apparent is how these businesses have supported and engaged with their local communities and team members through a broad range of positive initiatives. We have been impressed by the high calibre of entries received for these awards, and the judging panel have been inspired and amazed by what they have seen”.
“The ceremony is an opportunity for the tourism sector to celebrate and acknowledge these exceptional performances at the Qualmark 100% Pure New Zealand Experience Awards 2021 event”.
