Adventure Queensland (AQ), the peak backpacking and independent travel industry body for Queensland is excited to announce the return of the Adventure Tourism Awards and Youth Tourism Conference that will take place on the Gold Coast on Thursday 14 November 2019.

Following the success of last year’s outstanding conference and awards night, AQ are continuing to focus on curating an industry led awards program and showcasing some of Australia and New Zealand’s tourism operators.

Along with supporters and sponsors of the youth tourism sector, AQ’s goal is to highlight the importance of formally recognising outstanding tourism experiences, people and places within this dynamic industry.

The 2019 awards night will take place in the new Glasshouse event space at the Island Gold Coast. A versatile and picturesque venue situated on the ground level overlooking Bruce Bishop Park, the Glasshouse will be the perfect space for hosting a spectacular 2019 Adventure Tourism Awards.

Testimonials

The awards are an incredible way to connect with businesses in the youth travel industry.

Great to have a fair system to reward those who work so hard to put their business on the map for adventure travellers in the Australia and New Zealand Tourism Industry.

Lisanna Weston / 2018 Attendee

It’s important that our industry comes together, as one voice, to not only celebrate our successes but to also
collaborate on topics that impact our sector.
I feel this is best done by our industry and that is why we are so excited to facilitate an awards program and conference that is put together by the industry for the industry!

Anita Butler / AQ Vice President

After such a successful inaugural event last year, BOA NSW is
again looking forward to collaborating with AQ in bringing the industry together to celebrate our amazing
achievements. I love attending these events with all the familiar faces but most importantly to see
businesses being rewarded for all their hard work.

Sarah Flynn / President BOA
