RACQ People’s Choice Award officially launched

Queensland’s largest Club has launched the inaugural RACQ People’s Choice Award category of the 2017 Queensland Tourism Awards.

RACQ has partnered with the Queensland Tourism Industry Council to launch two new categories – best experience/service and best accommodation.

RACQ’s Lauren Ritchie said locals could vote for their favourite experience, service or accommodation to crown Queensland’s best of the best.

“As an iconic Queensland brand, we’re so proud to be able to help recognise some of the best operators in our State,” Ms Ritchie said.

“From the lush rainforests in tropical Queensland, to the desert plains in the outback, we’re so fortunate to be home to some of the world’s most sought after tourism destinations.

“While a team of judges will determine the winners of the gold, silver and bronze awards in each of the 28 categories, locals for the first time will be able to have their say and get involved.”

Running for more than 33 years, the Queensland Tourism Awards has celebrated the outstanding achievements of the State’s tourism operators, while providing a benchmark for industry best practice.

Queensland Tourism Industry Council Chief Executive Daniel Gschwind said the more than 200 nominees were a shining example of why the State’s tourism industry has enjoyed record growth in 2017.

“We’re excited to introduce the RACQ People’s Choice Category and let our visitors and fellow Queenslanders determine the best and most popular tourism experiences in our State.”

The public can cast their vote for RACQ People’s Choice Award until 17 September 2017, and go into the draw to win a $5000 RACQ travel voucher.
