TRC Tourism has been working with Activate Tairāwhiti to support the development of new quality, trade ready visitor experiences. Last week Tracy joined Team Tairāwhiti to attend the eXplore Central North Island Trade event in Auckland. First time operators Waka Voyagers Tairāwhiti and Maunga Hikurangi joined the team proudly presenting their new Qualmark Gold endorsed experiences to the trade. The feedback from trade was overwhelmingly positive. Next stop TRENZ in a couple of weeks time.
What is Qualmark? Qualmark provides evidence that a business has been independently validated as a quality tourism business. It provides instant recognition for customers that the business will deliver a quality experience. A Gold Award recognises the best sustainable tourism businesses in New Zealand, with the delivery of exceptional customer experiences an integral part of everything they do. A Gold Sustainable Tourism Award identifies those businesses leading the way in making the New Zealand tourism industry a world class sustainable visitor destination.
