A night of cel­e­bra­tions

Whitsunday Times - - 2014 WHITSUNDAY TOURISM & BUSINESS AWARDS -

THE Whit­sun­days night of nights, the 2014 Whit­sun­day Tourism and Business Awards, was again a glam­orous cel­e­bra­tion of the achieve­ments of lo­cal busi­nesses at a gala night held at the Proser­pine En­ter­tain­ment Cen­tre on Satur­day.

On the night, 27 lo­cal busi­nesses were awarded for their out­stand­ing achieve­ments and ex­cel­lence in business prac­tice.

Whit­sun­days Mar­ket­ing and De­vel­op­ment Limited (WMDL) Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor Jeff Aquilina said it was an evening to cel­e­brate the great lo­cal business com­mu­nity of the Whit­sun­days.

“We have been ab­so­lutely over­whelmed with the achieve­ments of lo­cal busi­nesses across the re­gion in the past year and I would like to con­grat­u­late the fi­nal­ists and win­ners of the awards,”

“The award cel­e­bra­tions have yet again demon­strated the pas­sion, com­mit­ment and suc­cess of the Whit­sun­days business com­mu­nity and ev­ery sin­gle en­trant can be re­ally proud of their achieve­ments,” Mr Aquilina said.

“The Whit­sun­days is a world-renown des­ti­na­tion but the ex­cel­lent cus­tomer ser­vice and business prac­tice of our lo­cal in­dus­try en­sures that vis­i­tors, fu­ture brides and lo­cals can en­joy a fun-filled and worry-free ex­pe­ri­ence in Aus­tralia’s premier hol­i­day des­ti­na­tion ev­ery sin­gle day,”

“On the night, we have had five busi­nesses that have en­tered the Hall of Fame for win­ning the award of their re­spec­tive cat­e­gory for the third con­sec­u­tive year,” Mr Aquilina said.

“We have also hon­oured the out­stand­ing con­tri­bu­tion of Al Grundy to the lo­cal com­mu­nity over the past years and applauded the tire­less con­tri­bu­tion of the board mem­bers of Tourism Bowen to driv­ing tourism for the re­gion,” Mr Aquilina said.
