We are pleased to announce our Tourism Awards Finalists for 2020!
A big Congratulations to these businesses for being chosen as Finalists! These businesses have been chosen based on their achievements during 2018 and 2019. We are looking forward to having our Winners announced LIVE on stage at our upcoming Air New Zealand Cook Islands Tourism Awards presentation in December 2020.
Now that our written application period has closed, our overseas Awards Judges will be visiting Rarotonga in February to conduct the in-person interview portion of the Awards application. The Judges will contact the businesses direct to schedule the in-person interviews. As in past years, the Awards Finalists will be chosen based on the ratings the Judges apply to both your written application and your in-person interview.
