People involved in the travel and tourism sector across the Sultanate of Oman are being encouraged to shine the limelight on their achievements and showcase their talents by entering the Travelex Oman Tourism Ambassador Awards 2013 held in partnership with the Ministry of Tourism. The closing date for nominations is only two weeks away on 15th November.
The Travelex Oman Tourism Ambassador Awards are presented by Travelex Oman in conjunction with the Ministry of Tourism.
Mohammed Al Zadjali, Director General of Investment Services and Quality Management, said, “The Travelex Oman Tourism Ambassador Awards play an important role in rewarding the dedication and hard work of the local tourism industry and recognise the contribution made towards preserving and promoting the unique cultural and landscape of Oman.”
Mohammed Al Zadjali added, “These awards bring added value to the tourism sector in Oman, and this is especially true for new SME’s projects. We encourage everyone in the tourism sector to participate in the Ambassador Awards in order to promote themselves and develop more tourism business in the Sultanate.”
Open to all employees in tourism and related businesses across the country, the Awards seek to recognise the brightest stars of the Oman tourism industry, the people who go above and beyond to really make the Sultanate of Oman such an incredible place to visit.
Commenting on the range of entries received so far, Peter McNally General Manager of Travelex Oman, said, “The enthusiasm for the Awards in 2012 was exceptional, but we are particularly delighted with the depth of nominations we have received so far for the 2013 awards. Not only have we seen participation from potential ambassadors across the Sultanate, but the quantity of nominations speaks volumes about the passion for excellence in the industry and how proud people are to reveal Oman and its distinctive qualities to tourists.”
To reflect the entrepreneurial nature of the tourism industry in Oman and to broaden the access to the competition, a number of changes have been made to the Awards programme which is now in its second year and covers 12 award categories. As well as a new ‘Startup Ambassador’ category to recognise the valuable role played by the SME sector and ‘Ambassador for Heritage and Culture’ category there will also be a ‘People’s Vote’, more details of which will be announced soon.
The deadline for entering is 5pm on 15th November.
