Finalists Announced in 2019 Perth Airport WA Tourism Awards

26 September 2019

The finalists that will contest the prestigious 2019 Perth Airport WA Tourism Awards were announced tonight at Optus Stadium. 

In its 47th year, the Perth Airport WA Tourism Awards attracted a record number of entrants, representing a diverse range of businesses from across Western Australia.

“The Perth Airport WA Tourism Awards are the most prestigious awards in the tourism industry, with a long history of celebrating and recognising business excellence, innovation and outstanding customer service by tourism operators,” Tourism Council WA CEO Evan Hall said.

“It’s exciting to see so many businesses entering the Awards this year, many for the first time, to benchmark their business against their peers and gain recognition for their accomplishments and innovation.

“The longevity and process of the Awards really does mean that those which take home medals are the best tourism businesses Western Australia has on offer.”

Perth Airport’s Chief Corporate Services Officer, Debra Blaskett, said that as Australia’s Western Hub, Perth Airport was once again proud to be the principal sponsor for the WA Tourism Awards, recognising and promoting the incredible tourism products that WA has to offer.

“Perth Airport has been working in partnership with the State Government to increase international aviation capacity to Western Australia and over the past 12 months approximately 330,000 international seats have been added to the Perth market. This impressive growth showcases the confidence that our major airlines have in the Western Australian tourism industry and its amazing products and experiences,” she said.

The winners of the 2019 Perth Airport WA Tourism Awards will be announced at a gala dinner on November 9 at Crown Perth. Gold Medal winners in categories 1 to 25 go on to represent WA at the Qantas Australian Tourism Awards, to be held in Canberra in March 2020.
