Prize recipients were announced on World Tourism Day, Tuesday 27 September, by Queensland Tourism Minister Kate Jones. CEO of Digital Coaching International, Liz Ward said she was thrilled to have Tourism Tribe recognised as an innovative leader in shaping the future of the tourism industry.

“Tourism Tribe provides an urgently needed new approach to industry e-enablement through a global community platform,” said Ms Ward. “In just over 12 months since launching we’ve seen unprecedented demand among tourism operators to upskill and adopt digital technologies to improve their business.

“Through this innovative online platform we’ve created a single place to learn and get help that is customised for the tourism industry. Services are accessed in a supported environment, where members can engage with each other and trusted experts to benefit from their experience,” she said.

Now in its fourth year, the QTIC Prize for Innovation in Tourism recognises micro and small to medium sized Queensland tourism enterprises that have demonstrated outstanding effort in innovation of products, services and processes in Queensland. Gold Coast-based Newbook eManagement Technology, a cloud based Reservation System, took out the winning title.

Our team would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of Country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to their elders past, present and emerging and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today. We acknowledge that the sharing of knowledge has occurred across the lands and waterways of Australia for many thousands of years. As we continue to share stories and support small tourism businesses we try to listen to the knowledge and practice that has always existed here and consider how we can contribute to the preservation of culture and Country wherever we live and work.
