New Zealand Tour Operator Awards Announced

The New Zealand Travel and Tourism Office named Down Under Answers the top tour operator at its annual awards dinner May 17, the country's tourism officials said. The Seattle-based company took the prize for "Overall Supreme Winner" along with recognition for "Best Promotional Marketing Campaign" and "Wholesaler of the Year." The latter title came after a vote of retail travel agents sending clients to New Zealand. Meanwhile, Los Angeles-based Springboard Vacations was honored for its "Best Consumer Brochure," while Active Down under of San Diego took the award for best online content.
