Tasmanian Tourism Awards Coaching
In 2023 East Coast Tasmania Tourism is changing the way we support and recognise outstanding Tourism Operators in our region.
Instead of the East Coast Tourism Awards, we will have two avenues of recognition at local and state level, High Achiever recognition and Coaching through the Tasmanian Tourism Awards program.
Each quarter ECTT will host a networking event where we award excellence in business in four categories that recognise outstanding operators from Food and Beverage, Accommodation, Tourism Experience and Tourism Attraction Sectors.
- Guest Love
- Positive impact
- Accessible & Inclusive Tourism
Tasmanian Tourism Awards Coaching program:
Up to 10 operators will received one-on-one coaching through the submission and application process to enter into the Tasmanian Tourism Awards.
Coach: Michaela Lamprey & reports to ECTT CEO
Cost: No cost for coaching – entry fee to submit award application at entrant expense
Must be able to attend and meet all below deadlines

Benefits of entering:

The Tasmanian tourism industry acknowledges the Tasmanian Aboriginal people and their enduring custodianship of lutruwita / Tasmania. We honour 40,000 years of uninterrupted care, protection and belonging to these islands, before the invasion and colonisation of European settlement. As a tourism industry that welcomes visitors to these lands, we acknowledge our responsibility to represent to our visitors Tasmania’s deep and complex history, fully, respectfully and truthfully. We acknowledge the Aboriginal people who continue to care for this country today. We pay our respects to their elders, past and present. We honour their stories, songs, art, and culture, and their aspirations for the future of their people and these lands. We respectfully ask that tourism be a part of that future.
