Tourism’s biggest and brightest night of the year, the Australian Tourism Awards, brings together the best of Australia’s tourism and hospitality providers, recognising those who excel within the industry. The 2013 awards were held on February 7th at Luna Park, Sydney with the HON. Andrew Robb AO MP, Federal Minister for Trade and Investment and HON. George Souris MP, NSW Minister for Tourism and Major Events in attendance.
The evening is the culmination of a year’s dedication and effort to provide the best services, attractions and facilities to the 6.1m people who visited Australia during 2013. Hosted by the National Tourism Alliance the award categories include attractions and accommodation but also education, tourism services and tourism marketing.
Blue Mountains International Hotel Management School was honoured to win the Tourism Education and Training award. The School was nominated for the Australian Tourism Awards after winning the Gold award for Tourism Education and Training at the New South Wales Tourism Awards in November last year. Blue Mountains is a leading provider of hotel and resort management education in New South Wales and Australia with over 3000 graduates working in senior management positions around the world.
“This is a remarkable achievement for the faculty, staff and students of the School.

Winning this prestigious award at a national level is a great honour.” (Guy Bentley, Chief Executive Officer).
