Waitangi Treaty Grounds wins again at New Zealand Tourism Awards

The Waitangi Treaty Grounds is the winner of the Visitor Experience Award in the 2017 New Zealand Tourism Awards. 24 leading tourism operators and stakeholders competed in the 2017 New Zealand Tourism Awards – the $35 billion tourism industry’s most prestigious awards.

After winning the Māori Tourism award at the 2016 event, the Treaty Grounds has stepped up further to win the highly sought-after Visitor Experience category in 2017.

Waitangi Treaty Grounds CEO Greg McManus is thrilled with the win: “We are delighted with this recognition from the tourism industry. I am especially pleased for all our staff who come to work each day with the goal of delivering a fantastic experience for our visitors. We have a lot of new ideas in the pipeline so we will keep going with confidence towards our goal of being a world class visitor destination."

Paul Davis, Northland Inc General Manager Regional Promotions and Tourism says: “The win is a significant milestone for Waitangi Treaty Grounds and for the Northland tourism sector. This national recognition speaks about the importance of the Waitangi story in our nation’s psyche, and now about the creation of a compelling visitor experience which tells that story to the nation and to the world. Our congratulations to the team at Waitangi Treaty Grounds, and our thanks for the job they are doing to help build Northland’s tourism industry."

The winners were announced at a black-tie dinner in Christchurch last night.
