2017 New Zealand Tourism Awards Supreme Winner
As much as Aussies don’t like to admit it – they LOVE New Zealand! And you may pretend not to be interested in what’s happening across the ditch, though it pays to know what the awesome team at Haka Tourism Group are up to.
At last Thursday’s New Zealand Tourism Awards, Haka Tourism Group swept the awards in all their categories, including:
– Air New Zealand’s Supreme Tourism Award (the best of the best!)
– Business Excellence Award for Large Tourism Businesses (high performance on and off the field!)
– Tourism Marketing Award
– Founder, Ryan Sanders, as Tourism Champion Award
With true Kiwi modesty, Sanders commented “We would be lying to say we never dreamed this would happen, because we did – often, but shows hard work and dedication to our customer experience pays off”
Over the past ten years, Sanders’ Haka Tourism Group has experienced exceptional growth and are proud recipients of the tourism industry’s highest accolade, the Air New Zealand Supreme Tourism Award.
Backed by strong brand positioning and innovative digital marketing, Ryan and the team have expanded the company to include small group, adventure, snow and mountain bike tours, upmarket hostels, a specialist educational brand and high-end snow tours, with the business growing at an average of 80 percent year on year.
Thanks to Aussies! Over 60 percent of Haka’s business can be attributed to the ongoing support and increased fan club of Australians, who can’t seem to get enough of the Haka brand.
But wait, there’s more to come! New products geared towards the higher-end traveller are being launched to the Australian market shortly, with healthy commission rates and great industry discounts. Watch this space!
