TAANZ awards tables: Going, going nearly gone

Anyone in the industry who wants to attend the TAANZ National Travel Industry Awards (NTIA) needs to be in quick or miss out.


Travel Agents Association of New Zealand chief executive Andrew Olsen says TAANZ noticed an immediate surge of interest when finalists were announced and sales for the night took off. ‘We are down to around 10 tables at SKYCITY Convention Centre and by way of comparison, that puts us well ahead of last year.’


Olsen says the coverage of finalists in media partner TRAVELinc Memo has revealed some excellent strategies for success in the industry. ‘To see the finale of all those great stories, you need to be at the awards night.’ He adds that the Air New Zealand after party is ‘wrapped in mystique’ but will be a massive event in its own right. There will also be live to camera interviews taking place before, during and after the awards night. ‘This will make up an important part of the TAANZ NTIA memorabilia.’ The awards are being held on Saturday 8 September.
