Cairns Region Tourism Association is celebrated its 25th Anniversary this year with the highlight being the 2010 Kamsler Awards for Excellence in Customer Service in the Tourism Industry. The awards were held at the Pacific International and was attended by the who’s who of the Cairns Tourism Industry.
Visitors to Cairns are encouraged to provide feedback on the service they received while on holiday here through nomination forms which are widely circulated to Cairns based businesses. Completed forms are collected and reviewed monthly and a short list of up to 6 finalists are then interviewed by a judging panel. Ten functions are held each year where awards are presented to a monthly winner and a special mention prize and from these an Annual Award winner is selected and presented at the prestigious annual Kamsler Awards.
Our Dive Master and Dive instructor in Training Russell Hosp was Aprils winner and was up against nine other fantastic monthly winners. Unfortunately Russell did not take out the major prize but was awarded Runner Up and this in its self is a great achievement and the entire team here at Passions are proud of his efforts.
Cathy Wharton from Adventure North Australia was the eventual winner and our congratulations go out to her and her team.
Well done Russell and keep up the great work.
