NOM­I­NA­TIONS are now open for the 2020 AFTA Na­tional Travel In­dus­try Awards (NTIA)

(TD break­ing news) - and this year’s event is ex­pected to be par­tic­u­larly hotly con­tested.

The re­cently col­lapsed Ex­cite Hol­i­days (TD 14 Jan), which with­drew from AFTA and ATAS about a year ago, was cu­ri­ously just seven weeks ago named “Whole­saler of the Year” in a ri­val awards pro­gram.

In con­trast, the rig­or­ous judg­ing process of the NTIA en­sures that the awards truly cel­e­brate and re­ward the best of the best in the Aus­tralian travel in­dus­try, AFTA said, with cat­e­gories cov­er­ing travel agen­cies and in­di­vid­ual con­sul­tants, as well as the var­i­ous sup­pli­ers which sup­port them and their busi­nesses.

To en­ter, most cat­e­gories re­quire ATAS ac­cred­i­ta­tion and par­tic­i­pants go through a process which in­cludes nom­i­nat­ing, vot­ing or a writ­ten sub­mis­sion & judg­ing can­di­dates by an in­de­pen­dent panel.

The awards cul­mi­nate in the an­nounce­ment of the win­ners at the in­dus­try night of nights, the NTIA gala awards din­ner, which will be held on Sat 18 Jul at the In­ter­na­tional Con­ven­tion Cen­tre, Syd­ney.

The four forms used in the NTIA process are: one for agents to nom­i­nate a sup­plier in var­i­ous cat­e­gories; a sup­plier form to nom­i­nate travel agents and travel agen­cies; the Emi­rates Travel Con­sul­tant Schol­ar­ship for self­nom­i­na­tions; and Travel Writer nom­i­na­tion form.

Nom­i­na­tions opened at 9am this morn­ing and will close 5pm (AEDT) Fri 14 Feb.

The in­dus­try is en­cour­aged to view the Con­di­tions of En­try prior to nom­i­nat­ing (HERE), with en­tries only ac­cepted via the on­line form and each nom­i­na­tion to be ver­i­fied to en­sure its el­i­gi­bil­ity and va­lid­ity.

The list of all 2020 Nom­i­nees will be an­nounced in Mar.
