ITC students volunteer at tourism’s biggest night of the yearPosted on 05/11/2019 by Jess O'Connor
It’s often called tourism’s biggest night of the year: the renowned New Zealand Tourism Awards dinner.
This prestigious event is an opportunity to formally recognise the industry’s finest – and ITC students were right there to witness all of the excitement unfold.
Six hard-working ITC students had the opportunity to volunteer at the Awards dinner, which was held in Christchurch at Horncastle Arena on 24 October.
“This was a wonderful opportunity for these six students and I had no hesitation in choosing them for this role,” said ITC tutor Glynis McLeay.
“They all have amazing work ethic and their personal presentation and communication skills are always so professional.”
ITC’s Auckland-based team was also bursting with pride after seeing the photos of the students at the Awards dinner.
“They all looked so amazing! They did us all so proud,” says ITC tourism educator and marketing support Daniel Maine.
The six students are as follows:
- Brooke Robinson
- Eitatro Goshima
- Jordan Hemi
- Nikita Crosbie-Rolleston
- Vini Kumar
- Precious Croal
“The tourism awards was a phenomenal experience that allowed me to see all the parts of the industry coming together to celebrate the tourism industry as a whole,” says Brooke Robinson, one of the students.
“I’m very grateful for the opportunity to be a part of the awards for 2019.”
This isn’t the first time ITC students have had the opportunity to volunteer at such a prestigious event.
In the past, students have volunteered at the CATE Conference, the Go With Tourism Expo, Auckland Airport, and much more.
ITC also facilitates several work experience opportunities for students throughout the year.
