Two weeks until nominations close for ‘The CLIAs’
It’s not too late to nominate. That’s the message from Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) Australasia with less than two weeks to go until nominations close for the 2018 Cruise Industry Awards.
As part of the revamped awards night, there are now eleven categories open for self-nomination and peer nomination including the addition of Cruise Champion, Cruise Promotion and the Media Award.
CLIA member agents can also head online to submit nominations for the usual Cruise Consultant, Rising Star and Home Based/Mobile Agent of the Year for both Australia and New Zealand.
A further 7 awards, which are nominated by CLIA Cruise Line members, will be handed out at ‘The CLIAs’ at The Star, Sydney, on Saturday February 23, 2019.
CLIA Australasia & Asia Managing Director Joel Katz said award submissions will close on Friday December 14, 2018.
“There are two more weeks until submissions close for ‘the CLIAs’ so it’s not too late for CLIA member agents to nominate themselves or a deserving colleague,” Mr Katz said.
“We’ve had an amazing response to the revamped awards format, which includes some fresh and updated categories.
“The best way for members to familiarise themselves with the new line-up is to head online and submit some nominations.
“There are a lot of hard-working agents and agencies out there and we don’t want anyone to miss out on well-deserved recognition. ‘The CLIAs’ is our ‘night of nights’ and we look forward to celebrating another year of exceptional achievements in the cruise industry.”
