Major Sponsors

The Vanuatu Tourism Awards aims to help improve standards and professionalism, whilst encouraging the continual development of the tourism sector.

This years theme is ‘community’, so to recognise collaboration and knowledge sharing within our industry, aimed at helping build the Vanuatu brand and enhancing the visitor experience.

The ultimate goal of the Awards is to attract more tourists to create greater economic opportunity in Vanuatu and build a sustainable future for the industry.

Why should you enter?

By doing so, you may come across ways to improve what you do and by also competing against other businesses, you might see ideas that could be applied to your business to improve its performance.
