Businesses in Penrith Valley are set to reap the ‘awards’ again when the winners of the 2011Greater Sydney Tourism Awards are announced on July 28.
Paul Page, Penrith City Council’s City Marketing Supervisor, is also Chairman of Greater Sydney Tourism Inc which initiated the awards program last year.
“The awards seek to recognise outstanding tourism businesses and organisations in all parts of the Sydney metropolitan area,” said Mr Page. “They provide tourism-related businesses with a tool to evaluate their business, while celebrating their achievements and building staff morale. “
This year there are four finalists from the Penrith region which include the Penrith Valley Visitor Information Centre, Sydney International Regatta Centre, Chifley Penrith and Penrith Whitewater Stadium.
“As Manager of the Penrith Valley Visitor Information Centre I am proud to see the centre recognised in such a way,” said Mr Page. “The staff work tirelessly 363 days of the year to provide locals and visitors with information about all the local attractions, events, accommodation and information services available in Penrith Valley.
“I would also like to congratulate the other Penrith businesses who are also finalists.”
The award winners will be announced at a Gala Dinner at Waterview Function Centre, Bicentennial Park, Homebush on July 28th.
