THIS week is the last chance for members of the Australian cruise sector to nominate themselves for next year’s Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) Awards.
The Association has issued a rallying call for member travel advisors to stand up and be counted before award nominations close at midnight Thursday.
Eight categories are open to CLIA members for self-nomination or peer nomination, including Cruise Consultant of the Year, Home-Based/Mobile Agent of the Year, Rising Star, and Agency Cruise Promotion of the Year.
Other open categories include Network Cruise Promotion of the Year, Cruise Month Promotion of the Year, Cruise Champion, and Cruise Line Champion.
In addition to the individual award categories open for self-nomination are a series of agency categories, which will be nominated by cruise lines, including Small Cruise Agency of the Year, Large Cruise Agency of the Year, and Online Agency of the Year.
“A CLIA Award is a fantastic opportunity to put your name up in lights and be recognised as a true professional,” Katz said.
“It provides an enormous career boost and helps agents stand out to clients, but you need to nominate to be in the running.”
A total of 17 award categories will be judged in the lead-up to the awards, which are open to all current CLIA members in Australia.
TravelBulletin and our sister publications Cruise Weekly and Travel Daily are delighted to be the official media partner of the Awards, which will be announced on 09 March 2024 at a gala celebration at The Star, Sydney – for information and nominations, click here.
