NYS Tourism Excellence Awards Supports Your Future Success!

Jan 12, 2022

- Dear Fellow NYSTIA Members,

From my perspective, there is no better way to recognize our talented tourism industry partners and inspire future industry leaders than the New York State Tourism Excellence Awards. Winning an award lifts your profile, makes your staff feel good about where they work, can help you recruit future talent, and is a priceless public relations tool.

As a business leader and a marketing professional you know recognition is important, but with your resources stretched during these challenging times you may not be sure that nominating one of your organization's programs for a New York State Tourism Excellence Award is worth the investment of your time. I urge you to really think about the value these prestigious awards can bring you and your organization.

It has been my pleasure to serve on the New York State Tourism Excellence Awards Committee for five years and I can tell you that this dedicated group of individuals has worked hard to streamline the process so that all organizations, both large and small, can easily submit nominations. We truly hope you will take the time to tell us about your creative accomplishments in destination marketing and help us celebrate our great New York State tourism industry!
