FForty six people from the tourism industry have been appointed to serve as judges for the highly prestigious 2015 Lilizela Tourism Awards.
Earlier this year, South African Tourism invited members of tourism industry to form part of the Lilizela Tourism Awards adjudication panel. This invitation was well-received, with the cream of the industry offering to do service on the Lilizela panel of judges.
The Lilizela Tourism Awards recognise the best of the best of business owners and service providers who uphold service of excellence in their day to day operations. Launched in 2013, the awards have helped bolster South Africa’s reputation as a destination of excellence and variety across all experiences and accommodation types.
“As an organisation tasked with marketing South Africa as a leisure destination, we are exceptionally pleased with the response received from the local tourism industry. The awards showcase the best of the best in South Africa’s tourism offerings. Through these awards, we are able to showcase that our tourism products and services are world class, diverse, affordable and accessible,” says Mr Thulani Nzima, Chief Executive Officer at South African Tourism
“The 46 people who have been selected to adjudicate bring gravitas to the Awards. Their role as judges confirms the credibility of the Lilizela Tourism Awards as the premier awards for the tourism industry, and gives us the confidence of knowing every entry will be judged by people whose commitment to excellence in tourism is absolute.
“Lilizela 2015 judges also play a pivotal part in ensuring continuous collaboration in the tourism industry. Through the time they are giving to these awards, they bring the benefit of their experience and expertise to this national quest to find, and acknowledge, that best of the best in our tourism industry. They earn the deep gratitude of South African Tourism and of the larger travel and tourism sector.”
