Following the success of the previous 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.

This is hands down one of the biggest events in the Adventure Tourism Industry’s calendars. No other event celebrates New Zealand and Australia as an entirety like this.

It’s fantastic to see everyone strive to be the best in their given areas. Together we build an amazing industry and events like this give us the platform to show off all of our hard work (and they’re bloody good fun too!)
