Leisure Options wins three in a row and is inducted into To Hall of Fame
Leisure Options has once again been awarded top honours in the 2015 RACV Victorian Tourism Awards. Winning their category, Specialised Tourism Services, for a third consecutive year sees the business inducted into the Tourism Hall of Fame, a prestigious recognition only awarded to 6 others in 2015.
For over 30 years the Victorian Tourism Awards have showcased and recognised the state’s leaders in tourism excellence. The Awards encourage businesses to exceed industry standards and play an integral role in rewarding business excellence, innovation, industry professionalism, collaboration and initiative. In 2015, the tradition to recognise excellence continues, with over 100 entries submitted across 32 categories.
Minister for Tourism and Major Events John Eren paid tribute to the Victorian businesses recognised for their contribution to making Victoria’s tourism the envy of the nation. Mr Eren stated “Victoria is an incredible tourism destination, but it’s our hard-working tourism operators who ensure visitors from interstate and abroad leave with great memories and smiles on their faces.”
This award is the culmination of years of hard work from all staff at Leisure Options. Gary Elliott, Managing Director of Leisure Options said” It’s a truly amazing achievement by our team members both past and present. Together we have created a unique and outstanding business that is an absolute pleasure to lead. To my partner Cathy and our inspiring mentor Mary, thank you for the endless hours of work piecing together the winning submissions. Thank you to all our travellers who put their trust in Leisure Options to deliver outstanding holiday experiences.”
