TIAPEI's Annual Tourism Industry Awards

The Tourism Industry Association of PEI is now accepting nominations for the Annual Industry Awards on November 24th, 2016 in conjunction with the Tourism Conference & Awards Gala. This year’s conference will be held at Red Shores in Charlottetown.  Nominations for the following awards can be made on behalf of individuals, businesses, and organizations representing excellence in the tourism industry. Self-nominations are accepted.

Tourism is a major industry on PEI, contributing over $46 million dollars in provincial tax revenues to the economy and employing thousands of Islanders each year. This is the perfect opportunity to recognize those businesses and individuals who provide outstanding hospitality and service to over 1.2 million visitors each year and thank them for their contributions.
