  • Written by Alyse Ure


Recipients of the 2015 Minister's Student Achiever Awards in Tourism and Hospitality were honoured today by Minister for Trade, Tourism and Major Events Stuart Ayres at a special ceremony held at Parliament House in Sydney.

Mr Ayres congratulated 13 students on their outstanding achievements in their chosen fields of study and acknowledged the importance of professional training to the tourism industry.

“These students have shown great commitment and determination towards a career in tourism and hospitality and it was inspiring to see the incredible talent and enthusiasm on display,” Mr Ayres said.

“The NSW Government, through its tourism and major events agency Destination NSW, remains committed to helping grow the NSW visitor economy and this includes creating more job opportunities for our next generation of tourism industry professionals.”

Destination NSW Chief Executive Officer Sandra Chipchase said the academic achievement shown amongst the students will no doubt make a significant contribution to our State's tourism and hospitality industry in years to come.

“The tourism and hospitality industries are the world's largest employers and the Minister's Student Achiever Awards is a wonderful platform to showcase the State's best students who are on the right path to becoming future industry leaders,” Ms Chipchase said.
